by Rich Deem


A large percentage of men, including Christians, are addicted to pornography. Your husband may have tried to quit, but keeps going back. If you install content-blocking applications, like Net Nanny, you must install it on all computers. However, if he is smart, he can figure out how to disable it or get a new computer. Severe addiction can ruin your relationship with him, as he ignores you are prefers his online fantasies. We are going to use the free DNS management services FamilyShield by OpenDNS to block his access to the vast majority of pornography sites available on the web.

FamilyShield - Easy

In June, 2010 OpenDNS initiated FamilyShield, an all-in-one easy way to filter your Internet, blocking content based upon:

Simply by changing the DNS servers in your router, you can block objectionable material automatically. Generally, you can get to your router through the following link:

Going to this IP address will bring up the control panel for your router. Your control panel may or may not have a password to gain access. Check your router's manual for the default password and change it once you login. You can usually find the manual online. Just type the router's model number with the word "manual" in a Google search. When in doubt, try the username as "admin" and the password as "password" or blank.

Your sexual responsibility

Now that you have blocked your husband's major sexual outlet, you need to provide him something better - YOU! The average male younger than 80 years old "needs" sex every day. This concept seems to escape most wives, whose sexual desire  is much less. If you don't believe me, ask him directly, "Do you want to have sex every day?" Here is what the Bible says about the topic:

Let the husband fulfill his duty to his wife, and likewise also the wife to her husband. The wife does not have authority over her own body, but the husband does; and likewise also the husband does not have authority over his own body, but the wife does. Stop depriving one another, except by agreement for a time that you may devote yourselves to prayer, and come together again lest Satan tempt you because of your lack of self-control. (1 Corinthians 7:3-5)
