Navigating Marriage as the Husband of a Sexual Abuse Survivor

An eight-week group for husbands whose wives are survivors of childhood sexual abuse.

In the safe environment of other like-minded husbands, men will:

  • Discover they are not alone in dealing with their questions.

  • Explore new perspectives in regard to their questions.

  • Encourage one another in establishing new patters for responding to their wives.

The sessions will be based on content from Dr Bill’s new book, Help! My Wife was Sexually Abused, that addresses ten common questions from husbands whose wives are survivors of childhood sexual abuse (to be released in August 2019).

The 10 questions include:

  • What is a normal marriage?

  • Why doesn’t God heal my wife?

  • When will this be over?

  • Why can’t she just get over it?

  • What do I do with my anger towards her perpetrator?

  • Our sexual relationship is in trouble! What should I do?

  • Why does she seem to change at the flip of a switch?

Group facilitator is Dr. Bill Ronzheimer, President of Marriage Reconstruction Ministries whose mission is to help men and women rebuild marriages affected by a wife’s childhood sexual abuse. Bill is the husband of a survivor and has conducted research of other husbands across the country.
