voluntary abstinence

Question:

HI,

I submitted a question a few weeks ago about voluntary abstinence of marital relations while husband is recovering from addiction. The answer link sent to me email does not work nor can I find the answer anywhere on your site.

Please advise.
Thank you.

Answer:

I don’t know the specifics of your situation so I can not give you a definite answer. The general rule is that if the wife genuinely agrees to abstain, then it is permitted.

  1. “The general rule is that if the wife genuinely agrees to abstain, then it is permitted.”

    The answer does not address taking into account the husband’s position regarding this abstinence. Is the abstinence being forced upon him? What type of addiction is he recovering from? Sex addiction?

    1. The assumption was that the husband wants it.
