Masturbation: my challenge from God to stop

Before beginning this testimony, I must state at the outset that my wife and I have been very happily and faithfully married for 25 years. We have three children, now in their twenties. Our marriage is a testimony to the unity that God desires for all marriages: to reflect the relationship between Christ and the Church. As will be evident, we had to face some challenges, but there is no one with whom I have such unity in spirit and in the one flesh relationship as my wife. We are truly friends and lovers. My wife has had her own challenges, including me. This was one of mine.
