That could be interesting, but I'm thinking I'd get sued.

Oooooooh, so tempting! But since I'm now more or less friends with the X, I'd better not. But there's that little devil on my left shoulder whispering, "Go for it!"

I would get sued too.

I've often thought of leaking my STBX's (and SA OW's) story to a certain newspaper though! I've got thousands of pages of their texts, which include some rather important people. Not famous people, but people who really shouldn't be doing this sort of stuff.

It would make a great television mini-series.

Thank God my divorce is nearly over.

How I would love to do this and be on national TV and see how my appearance would rock the world of a certain sitting judge and his oh-so-politically connected, pseudo-socialite spouse. But I'll have to just speculate on that since his tie to the most important people in my life would cause them more embarrassment than it could ever be worth.

But it is fun to imagine.

Yeah, I'm thinking one of those silhouette shots with a disguised voice. How I wish I was brave enough to put a face on this....

Yes, my story is somewhat similar. He's just lucky that I care so much about my children.

RisingfromAshes - you would be great - you should ask if you could wear a disguise! You can also talk about how he put you through the divorce from hell. Anyhow, so glad to see that you've found love and light on the other side! Hoping to get there myself very, very soon - January!

Thank you so much ChoosingHope. I appreciate your acknowledgment of my difficult journey. No one here deserves this! It is devastating for everyone.

I would love to tell my story but could not expose my children to the destructive path their Dad has chosen.

If the talk show will conceal my identity I will be happy to address this issue!

I agree about the part about our children, although I wonder how much they already know, and where they are headed in their own lives long-term. I keep remembering the saying, "Families are only as sick as our secrets".

How could we be sure our identity wouldn't be revealed?

My husband and I have agreed to do this. We've talked to the producer at length. The show's host is a world renowned journalist and very respected.

We stressed to them that we wanted to bring awareness and advocacy to sex addiction. We wanted to be treated with respect, my husband has worked very hard on his recovery. There is so much shame and stigma surrounding SA.

We did not ask to be disguised, but we did ask that they not use our last name, nor any pictures of our children and they are fine with that. They do not want to sensationalize the issue but rather be realistic.

If you are serious, definitely ask about being in a shadow or whatever. They may be very agreeable to it. They will also have a csat available on the show too.

risingfromashes & Compartmented...

I've emailed the producer to see if that's possible, when I hear back from you, I'll certainly let you know

Thank you! It is the only way I would discuss this in a public forum.

I agree Compartmented about secrets. It is one thing to answer my daughters questions but it is another for me to broadcast his behavior to the general public. My children are older and would be devastated if their peers were to know about their sex-addicted Dad. Kids are sometimes brutal and could taunt and/or ostracize them.

They do not need to know any of the nasty details. They know he cheated and that is enough.
