I think the two of you should have a conversation about the role that you want sexting to play in your relationship.

Communicate that to him, and help create an atmosphere for him too redeem himself and for him to use this opportunity to further bond and help the marriage grow.

If a woman has to take responsibility for keeping the home fires burning — that is a responsibility she shares with her partner. Especially from people who have never experienced it.
