(Original Air Date: 11/19/07) Should you stay in a marriage with your husband if you find out a secret that disgusts you? Michelle thought she had the perfect marriage until recently, when she found out her husband of four years, Wade, was a sex addict and compulsive liar. He admits to cheating on her while she was pregnant, but says since then he's been faithful. Michelle made Wade take an online polygraph test that he failed. Why is Michelle convinced Wade is having an affair, and what proof does she say she has? Wade says there's a simple explanation and wants to take another lie detector test to prove his innocence. When Dr. Phil reveals the results of the second polygraph, will Michelle's fears be confirmed or put to rest? Concerned for the well-being of their two sets of twins, will Michelle decide to divorce Wade or hold on to the hope that their marriage can be healed? Join the discussion.

Find out what happened on the show.

Leave him.....

My heart goes out to you! I know what is like to live with a sex addict. I did for 7 yrs not knowing this until I moved in with him. When I finally figured out what was going on he made nothing of it. Treating me like I was a friend instead of his fiance. I caught him about ready to make the 900 #. He called it a chat line.

I was so devastated that I did not know which way to turn except out the door. He called me different womans names when we were having intimate relations. He started to become distant. Told me don't worry about having sex with him cuz he could take care of himself. When I approached him on the calls he would say...well sometimes we would have sex sometimes not. He claimed he could talk to her without feeling that he had to do something in an instant like with me. I tried my hardest to help him but I was mentally exhausted. I left him but it still hurts to think that a 900# could destroy a relationship. It was more important to him than me. Well he can call all he wants now & hope he doesn't get carpal penis tunnel. I am worth more than that. Think he is going to't think that for a moment. Get out before he ruins the rest of your life. Good luck and my blessing for whatever you chose.

husband's shocking confessions

    there are two sides to a story.  and let the man confess.  GUILTY UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY!!!!  yeah sure there are some good men out there, but where?  all men will do anything to get a woman to where he wants her.  then once he has her in his grips so to speak it is hell to pay!  he'll lie, cheat, swear,and even accuse the woman of having an affair or cheating on him just to make himself look good. while he is doing all the dirty deeds.  i should know i was married to a MONSTER like that up to the day he died 6 1/2 years ago.  do i trust men now? NO!  it was due to all of his nonsense. lies, accusations, swearing.  when all along he was doing it himself!  so women don't give in  and get all the facts against him!

I think she should get out of this relationship. She should end it is not point you are wastinf your future

and he is liar. He drinks. I have a friend who lives in Ottawa and she has been married for 15 years and he cheats and does drugs and a while ago she got into a fight and she called the police for domestic violence

He kicked her and beat her they fought infront of the kids.

Too far gone

No other words other than, frighting, creepy,and completely mental, could  begin express how freaky this lady's husband actually is. Hopefully she will use this show to get out, and maybe start building a decent life for she and children. God only knows she needs the help. She has had her heart torn apart by someone that's not much different than a rabid wild animal. Anyone can hear the pain in her voice.

A Husband's Shocking Confessions

Lies are never easy to face, specially if you have been the one lied to. That is the most shattering experience and it knocks all of the great energy that you thought you had.


The truth from personal experience was a total lack of energy for my personal well being. The disbelief that this could happen to me and the struggle to overcome the totally different life I was living. The life I thought I had, and the reality that hit me.


I did not have a Dr. Phil to help me out and my journey was a long and at times painful one. Trust was a part of me that was extremely difficult to project and I shied away from people and social life. It made me violently ill, which I recovered from in 6 months and took 6 years to recover true confidence in myself.


From what I have viewed of Dr. Phil, I truly believe that the road can be much shorter for Michelle.  The first step is to tell someone and that is what you have done Michelle, you have taken the first step. Trust your gut feeling and not your broken heart or your large shock. It took me awhile to figure that out, but in the long run, it made me a happier and stronger person.


From a once shocked confession, I send energy and positive recovery your way.

True energy is within you, I hope with the aid of Dr. Phil, you find that energy

Can life be better?

Dear Michelle,


I found out 2 years ago that my husband had a pornography addition that he's hidden throughout our 22 yr marriage.  I knew things were not right shortly after we married, but thought it was me.  I decided, I'd committed this union, had a child, and was going to make the best of it.

I discovered many things, both our children did as well.  My son and daughter were devasted on many levels to find out what he'd done, and continues to do.

 I know it takes an incredible amount of couage to imagine a life different than what you have...for yourself and for your children.


I wish us both the courage we need to believe life can be better.


Blessings  to you and your children,

 You know after reading all of this it makes me happy lm single, the pain and suffering these poor women endure by unfaithful husbands sicken me. l hope they sort out their problems and live happy lives..l feel sorry for the children as they have to live in that enviroment. l too have come across some bad men when l was dating but l got out quickly as soon as l saw the signs..l will not let a man abuse me in anyway..why should l endure sadness and suffering from a man who has no respect for his woman? l know there are beautiful men out there as they are not all bad..

MY quote is:  if you are not meant to be there...dont be.
