  1. Hello dear,
    I can understand your agony completely. This may or may not be a psychological disorder. How has your parents' relationship been? In case, it has been turbulent, this may be a way she has taken up for fulfilling that void in her life. Also, apart from this relationship and porn addiction, does she have other symtoms like talking a lot, overgrooming, spending a lot, being overjoyous, switching of moods often? In that case, this may be a bipolar disorder and need treatment with mood stabilisers. You can consult me privately for further clarification and advice.
