    I have had that exact “I used pornography, something terrible will happen to my absent partner” thought on several occasions. You’re not alone on that one.

    I think in addition to misdirected guilt it’s also a part of myself saying that I need to be better when she’s not around to make me better. But the guilt’s there too.

      It’s a very frustrating mindset that I’ve been trying for years to shake. Along with it creating a terrible paranoia, it also paints a rather petty portrait of God, as if He says, “Well, I was planning on a long and healthy life for this guy’s wife, but he just had to go and look at porn, so I guess that’s just her bad luck.”

        Very good point. Even Lot’s wife got to decide for herself whether to look back.
