For those of you who cheated (like me) and who are REALLY (and I emphasize REALLY) trying to make things work, how do you let your partner know that you can be trusted again? I understand the importance of making your life transparent for them - but in your relationships, do you have to "ask permission" to go places or do things? I don't want to put my partner in the position of "being a mother", so I was just wondering if there are any other ways to let your partner know what is going on and where you are without resorting to "can i..?". I know that boundaries and privacy are an important aspect of a healthy relationship, but I feel that since I cheated, I really forfeited those rights to privacy (at least for the time being) because I hid things I shouldn't have. What do you think?
