St. Catherine’s Monastery, almost 1,500 years old, stands at the base of Mount Sinai on Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula. Built between 527 and 561 on the orders of Emperor Justinian.

Travel trivia: St. Catherine’s is one of the world’s oldest continuously inhabited Christian monasteries.

“I’ll stop when I’m married” or “I won’t bring this into my marriage” is usually the rationale. The problem is that there is no superpower in that wedding ring that will magically imbue you with the discipline (and the freedom) to renounce pornography; your ring is not forged in the fires of self-mastery. There’s no switch thrown on your wedding day that will make you impervious to temptations. Nor will your spouse magically satisfy all the illicit sexual fantasies that porn trains your brain to expect.

Marriage will not cure your porn problem; your porn problem will undermine your marriage.

You bring into your marriage who you are, and that includes your daily habits and behaviors. Good habits and bad habits alike take time to cultivate…
