Jana Kramer’s husband, Mike Caussin, is celebrating a positive year in his battle with sex addiction.
Mike Caussin Shares Journey with Sex Addiction
In an Instagram post on Kramer’s account, the ex-NFL player shared the sense of shame that he feels from his addiction. He explained that this year, while difficult, has been “the most sober year of my entire life.”
“I’ve had my stumbles and falls over the last four years in this program but this year has finally been different. None of that has been possible without finally allowing myself to lean into others, lean into my wife and lean into God. This isn’t a post for attention, sympathy or congrats. It’s a post to express humility and acknowledge that we don’t have to go through life alone,” Caussin wrote.
He urges for men to be vulnerable and open, despite how hard society may make that sometimes.
According to US Magazine, the two were married in May 2015. They have one daughter named Jolie. The two separated in September 2016 after news leaked that he had cheated. Then after his continued treatment for sex addiction, the two reconciled and renewed their vows in 2017. They then had their son Jace in 2018.
Jana Kramer Talks Impact of Addiction
Kramer is a popular actress as well as an ACM award-winning country singer. The two have an award-winning podcast together called, “Whine Down.” In one episode, Kramer discussed how it was difficult to trust her husband. He had a relapse in 2018 that could have ended very poorly.
Kramer originally received the news that her husband cheated via a DM the first time. Now she is always looking out for more messages.
“The reason why it caught me off guard was because the very first time I found out Mike cheated on me was through a DM. I think — I told my therapist this — I almost have this weird PTSD where I go through my DMs, almost looking to see if the truth is gonna prevail in the DM again. I have this fear when I go through my DMs. … The really sucky thing about it is that my default can’t go to ‘There’s no way.’ That’s where it hurts the most, where I can’t just go, ‘I trust him 1000 percent. He would never do that,'” Kramer said on the podcast.
The two also wrote the book “The Good Fight: Wanting to Leave, Choosing to Stay, and the Powerful Practice for Loving Faithfully,” which was released in September.
The two talk about the most difficult and rewarding moments of their marriage. They discuss “what it means to love, to fight, and to sincerely forgive—with spiritual guidance and practical advice for anyone seeking stronger, more fulfilling love.”
