Danielle claims that her husband of nearly 10 years, John, has been living a secret life, and she’s now questioning everything about their relationship -- and ready to file for divorce. She says her suspicions first began in 2010, when she found out that John had been communicating with men online, looking for sex. Then, in November 2012, Danielle says she made another shocking discovery -- John had downloaded child pornography to the family computer. She says she’s concerned about the safety of their two kids -- and needs some definitive answers. John insists that the child porn was accidentally downloaded, and though he admits to reaching out to men online, he says he never actually met up with anyone in person. How does he explain his actions? Dr. Phil doesn’t mince words with John, who is adamant that he’s ready to be completely honest, in the hopes of saving his marriage -- and keeping his family intact. He agrees to take a polygraph test to prove that he has not had any sexual contact with men or with children -- what will the results reveal? This program contains strong sexual content. Viewer discretion advised. (OAD: 2-21-14)

I don't believe a word that comes out of that guy's mouth. He was caught lying so many times just on this show alone. I don't know if he thinks Dr. Phil and the general pubic are stupid or what, but, I, for one don't believe one thing he says. He is, without a doubt, gay. Why doesn't he just admit it? Straight men do NOT have affairs with other men EVER, let alone on a regular basis like this guy. To top it all off, he tries to get the heat off of himself by throwing her under the bus. NO COMPARISON, JOHN!!!! So, besides being into child porn, sleeping with guys and lying, etc., etc., he's also.a jackass!! There is no way that Danielle can trust this guy. She needs to take her kids and get out of this marriage. Obviously, his marriage isn't a top priority for him.

Gay men have to stop hiding in the closet and marrying straight women. Same with closeted lesbians who marry straight men.  It never works. The truth always comes out and everyone gets hurt.

If a man sleeps with other men, he is gay - or perhaps bi. If he watches gay porn, he's gay. One doesn't need rocket science - or a therapist - to figure that out. Dr. Phil called it, but your husband kept denying. In any case, there is a place for you, Danielle, to help you sort out your feelings and support whatever decision you make about the future of your marriage. It's the Straight Spouse Network.  They've been around for almost 30 years. You'll find support contacts, support groups and lots of important information there. I know about it because my husband came out, finally, after 32 years of red flags. The Straight Spouse Network helped me through the very difficult journey afterward. They are in every State and even in foriegn countries. I urge you to contact them as soon as possible.

This guy is tot ally messed up & a complete liar, just look at his body language. Seems like he wanted to get caught which makes him dumber than an amoeba. She needs to get away from him and he needs to pay for his crimes re: child pornography.

She will get divorced, get child support, be a single mom, learn to trust again and find a good man and step dad for the kids. My husbad did the same. He posted craiglist ads, but on top of that I found emails asking him to go out while me and the kids where sleeping. He was leaving the house and going with men. I left! I moved in with my sister and have joint custody of the kids. Life goes on, she can get through this.

My husband of 4 years was also posting and replying to craiglist ads. Married men seeking men-Looking for a good time..ect. We have 2 kids, and I left when I found out. If you are not married and do not have kids trust me, run the other way. My husband claims it was just curiousity at first when he was in college. I would think that 9 years later after getting married and having kids he would focus on the family he made. Instead family stress, got him looking for a freaking release with men. On top of that he felt it wasn't cheating and he claims is not gay, yeah sure.

We just learned a close family member has been involved in sexual encounters with under age girls, pimping over the internet which no one suspected - my sister-in-law discovered his sorbid lifestyle by accident over the internet, They were married 26 years. Her shock, our shock, is beyond description, Like this John he is placing the blame on everyone else, swears he's innocent even though all the evidence points to his guilt. This sort of crap can and does happen in nearly any marraige as it has here right under our very nose. Looking back there were signs but only when a huge one - such as a paper trail, e-mails, pictures on cell phones whiich mistakenly end up on the wife's phone, only then does it become 20/20 hindsight. My sister-in-law is still in shock mode, still struggling to grasp how this all happened - my husband, meanwhile, wants to clean his brother's clock and it is not the one hanging in his new pad either.

Being charged as a sex offender is too broad - it can mean an 18 year-old having sex with a 15-year-old, this not only waters down the law it detracts from the protective spirit behind this law - protecting a child from being abused by an adult, not a child against a child or a very mature teen ager against another teen.
