Report him to the police! Stealing from you is illegal enough, but downloading child porn as well! He won't need to worry about bills from jail. It's also safer for children if he's locked away.

Child porn = Bad Torturing another human being = Good Man it's great to know your priorities. I have to wonder, if you catch a 13 year old with CP do you slice em up real good?

Some people are sick. But torture the ones who MADE the porn. Op's husband wouldn't have it if those people didn't make it and we wouldn't be having this conversation.

You guys are all kind of fucked up. Nobody deserves torture. Not even mass murderers, rapists, or torturers. This is because nobody deserves to be murdered, or raped, or tortured, and healthy people don't do that kind of stuff. The adults who like this kind of stuff and who -create- it are ill. Literally. They need help, just like the murderer, just like the rapist, and just like you, apparently. You need to help them make better decisions with their lives and become better people, or at least stop them from doing this, not act out revenge fantasies against them.

one thing i've noticed missing from all of these comments... YOU NEED TO CALL THE POLICE. child porn is a CRIME. yes he will be arrested but also the sickos who made it will be closer to being busted and shut down.

"Nobody deserves torture. Not even mass murderers, rapists, or torturers. This is because nobody deserves to be murdered, or raped, or tortured, and healthy people don't do that kind of stuff." Healthy people don't want to punish those who do horrible things? You my friend, are a complete wuss. Some people will never change no matter how long you put them in jail or how many hugs and kisses you give them. Plus for some people, there's no other punishment that even comes close to fitting the crime they committed.

@155: Ideally such people could be effectively treated. In reality, however, no cure exists. They enjoy what they do and, unlike people with other conditions, such as schizophrenia, they usually don't WANT to be cured. Children's rights take priority; paedophiles and ephebophiles forfeit their rights when they choose to assault and exploit some of society's most vulnerable. Imprison them for life and let Bubba deal with it.

This. Some people seem to think the child porn might not be too bad. They haven't seen it. Nor have I. Let the police decide how bad it is and the judge can decide how much free accomodation your husband is entitled to courtesy of the local jail.

It's your duty and obligation (and Idk how it works in Australia but in the US I believe it's the law) to report him if he has child porn on his computer. This actually isn't funny at all and is very serious. If he acts on his impulses and does something inappropriate with a child before he gets locked up you would have very hard time living with yourself and that kid's life would be ruined. Act fast!

@90: Anyone with a conscience would take your position, regardless of the law. You're right: she needs to turn him over ASAP. Such offenders virtually never have only one victim, and typically their behaviour only gets worse. The effects are far-reaching and long-lasting. Kids' rights come first.

Just cause we live in Australia doesn't mean we don't have laws , this is very much illegal in Australia and op should defiantly be reporting it

246 - No one said you didn't have laws. They said they weren't sure what the laws were there. In the US (at least in my state), you legally have to report any suspected abuse (physical, mental, sexual, etc) of a minor. They weren't sure if Aussies had such a mandatory-reporter law.

yeah, AND, if he was doing it on your shared Internet connection you should definitely report him but I would not do it anonymously so that they know you had nothing to do with it and are not implicated!

Yes. I don't know about Australia, but in the U.S., it's illegal to possess child porn. I have been in court (I'm a court reporter) during a sentencing for that very crime. I also reported a divorce case where the husband's obsession with child porn was a key factor. I think talking to the police about your husband's child porn collection would be a good idea. And as for you, what a horrendous wakeup call. These skanks are really devious, and I'm afraid that I do understand how this could go on without a spouse or family member knowing about it. Sorry you are going through this.

Even teens are children, thus making it child pornography. I'm sure OP knows the difference between regular pornography and what is clearly that of children.

Did you know that even though most percentages named in casual conversation are indeed made up, 95% of people will believe them without question?
