          What It’s Like Being Married To A Self-Described ‘Virtuous Pedophile’


          January 23, 2017

          Tabitha says when she learned that her husband of five years, Gary, was a self-described “virtuous pedophile” who was attracted to young girls, she chose to stick by his side.

          “It was troubling,” Tabitha admits. “But I recognized that he is not a child molester. He has a sexual attraction to children, doesn’t act on it.”

          Tabitha says she hasn’t seen any behavior to the contrary and 100 percent believes Gary when he promises her that he won’t act on his urges. She says she has no reservations about Gary being around kids, including their 10 grandchildren.

          “When people find out my husband’s a pedophile, they see me as being very ignorant and that of course he’s molesting children,” Tabitha says. “It makes me angry.”

          Tabitha says she and Gary have been happily married for 11 years and have a normal sex life, which she credits for Gary keeping his urges at bay.

          “Research has shown that if a pedophile, whatever relationship they are in, when they’re satisfied, that this really reduces the likelihood of them molesting a child,” Tabitha says. “I support Gary and no, I have no plans to leave him.”

          On Monday’s episode of Dr. Phil, Gary describes the moment he says he realized that he was capable of harming a child and how he says he controls his urges. Check here to see where you can watch.
