I knew if we were going to continue dating, and eventually get married, I had to be honest and I can’t hide anything from her.Stephen edgington
After a couple has their first discussion about pornography – now what? In Part 1 of this conversation, Creed and Crishelle hear Stephen and Bentlee’s story about first talking about this issue in their relationship, and how they learned to talk more openly about it in spite of their fears.
In this episode:
- It takes courage on both sides to talk honestly about this.
- What Stephen learned from other relationships.
- Keep in mind what your end goal for the relationship is.
Stephen Edgington is a BYU Pathways student working towards a degree in HR, a goal he has had for a long time. After struggling with pornography and other addictions for many years, Stephen has recently started to share his story, hoping that his example will encourage others to break the silence.
Bentlee works for Reach 10 part time as a social media assistant and works full time as a copywriter for a Utah tech company. She loves reading and picking up new hobbies.
They were recently married in March of 2020 at the beginning of the pandemic. You can reach either of them at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
