Will this leopard change his spots?
I'm 33. Been in a relationship for longer than 4 years. Very much in love. Boyfriend loves porn & fantasising about other woman behind my back, but tells me of it, says I must pray for him to stop. Cheated on me before, admits it and says he's sorry. He says he does love me. Am I desperate, or will the fact that I do forgive and pray for him help him change?

I have met very few spotless leapards in my life. Your prayers are nopt going to change him, especially not likely to stop him cheating. If he was truly sorry, he would stop. Forgiveness of someone who is not themselves working with a shrink to have a realistic chance of changing, is pointless
