25. "Marriage destroyed by porn" is an extremely common daytime TV episode

The Dr. Phil reference is just for convenience.

And, more to the point, every time I've heard of a "marriage destroyed by porn", a little digging reveals there's other problems. The "excessive" porn use was an outlet for someone unhappy in the relationship because of those other problems.

Blaming the break-up on evil porn is a convenient excuse that renders both parties of the relationship blameless. The woman's a victim, and the man's a victim of the evil porn industry in the "standard" telling of this tale.
