Her Turn

"It's Not the First Time"

"I'm outraged!" said Mia, 29, a former book editor who quit her job when her son, Jason, was born four months ago. "Carson has been visiting online pornography sites -- and it's not the first time. Three years ago I noticed a credit card charge I didn't recognize. When I called to check it, I discovered he had joined a service that allows you to instant-message someone with whom you have the online equivalent of phone sex.

"When I confronted him, we had one of the ugliest fights we've ever had. He promised to stop, but then he blamed me! How's that for taking responsibility? He claimed he looked at porn because I never wanted to have sex, even though back then, before the baby, we had it a lot -- though never enough to suit Carson.

"Things were tense for a few weeks, but eventually the crisis blew over. We were busy: Carson had just started at a new real-estate firm, I loved my job, and on weekends we went antiquing to furnish our condo. We were very happy, or so I thought. Carson was thrilled by my pregnancy, though we didn't have much sex after the fourth month. I felt huge and gross, and he worried he would hurt me or the baby. Now, with a 4-month-old, all I want to do in bed is sleep!

"Still, I trusted him not to go back to the online smut. Then last week, I walked in as he was downloading some X-rated photos -- and my heart stopped. We are so compatible and have so much fun together. But clearly something is very wrong.
