What relation does post traumatic stress disorder have on infidelity?

My husband is using his ptsd as an excuse to his infidelity.

There is no excuse for infedility. It seems as if you and your husband need to go to some type of marriage couseling. Furthermore, your husband also needs counseling for his ptsd. It is a disease, but he cannot use this as an excuse for his sinful behavior. Please do not let him use this as an excuse.

People will use any excuse for their behavior. That doesn't mean you have to accept it. He needs to seek help for his PTSD, and your marriage.

It should have zero effect. In fact, someone with this condition wants and needs the stability of a wife and home.
