Jana Kramer on Mike Caussin Sex Addiction: He's Had Relapses ... But He's Sober Now!

by at .  Updated at .

Late last November, Jana Kramer welcomed her rainbow baby alongside her husband, Mike Caussin.

Unfortunately, it sounds like last year had its low moments as well as its perks.

Jana and Mike sat down and revealed that Mike, a sex addict, has relapsed more than once.

Jana Kramer and Mike Caussin share two young children.

Jolie is three years old. Baby Jace is almost four months old.

Back in 2016, it was reported that Mike cheated on Jana shortly after their wedding.

The couple separated for a while but then got back together and renewed their vows.

Now, they're revealing that they had a recent setback in terms of Mike's sex addiction.

"This is a big day because what we’re going to talk about is something pretty deep," the couple tells on their podcast, Whine Down with Jana Kramer and Mike Caussin.

Mike admits that he has had "relapses, yes, but no sex outside the marriage"

Mike has been in a 12-step program for sex addiction for three years.

However, he shares that after his last relapse, he is only one year "sober."

"I'm not minimizing cheating because we have other things in Jan and I's discussion of boundaries that's cheating," Mike clarifies.

"But no sex outside of the marriage," he emphasizes.

He adds: "I just want people to be clear that there wasn't any other affair since that moment."

Jana then refers to the 3 step circle system for addiction, in which something in the red circle is especially egregious.

She shares that he "did something he should not have done that was in a circle that was very red, like, bad and could have been awful."

"And that was a, you know, a massive relapse," Jana notes.

"Yes, it wasn't physical out of the marriage," Jana shares. "But it was something where the action was basically."

"It was classic addictive behavior," Jana summarizes.

Together, they shed a little more light on whatever mysterious relapse Mike experienced.

"We're just basically happy that someone didn't show up," Jana expresses.

"I showed up at the hotel instead," Jana adds. "If you really want to know."

Instead of whom, we wonder, though it probably doesn't matter -- to a sex addict, it really might not have mattered at all.

"We've been through some s--t," Mike summarizes..

"So that's why even though I've been in the program coming on three years," he concludes. "I'm a year sober."

"I spent essentially 29 years thinking or living a different way," Mike explains.

"Then all of the sudden, you shock your system, you say no, you're actually supposed to think of things this way," he narrates.

It sounds like monogamy was an adjustment for him.

It's not for everyone, but Mike sounds like he's determined to fit himself into that mold because he loves Jana.

"So for people just to flip the switch immediately, that's few and far between," Mike says.

"There's some people that do, but it's progress, not perfection," he concludes. "I had my stumbles along the way."

It sounds like Mike has had multiple issues -- because they refer to relapses, plural.

But since they both say that he didn't do anything outside of marriage, what does that mean?

Some couples make a "house rule" against porn, so it's possible that they decided that it was a trigger for his sex addiction, but that he looked at some anyway.

The hotel incident, however, sounds like he was trying to hook up with someone, but Jana swooped in and interceded.

Sex addiction may not be widely believed to exist by the psychiatric community, but it's clear that Mike is having difficulty with sexual impulses.

We wish this couple the best.
