How do you know whether to trust an ex-partner again?

Cupid’s Advice:

Sometimes there are mistakes an ex can make that break up the relationship, but are those mistakes so bad that you two cannot reconcile?  Here’s how to know when your partner may be worth trusting again:

1. They’re willing to put in the effort: It may be time to trust your ex again if it’s obvious they’re putting in a consistent effort to make your relationship work the second time around, like with counseling or therapy.

2. The violation of trust was a one-time thing: If what made you distrust your partner in the first place was a one-time mistake and it hasn’t happened since, time may be able to heal the wound.

3. Their sincerity shows through their actions: As the cliche says, “Actions speak louder than words.” If what they’re doing matches the sincerity in their words, that’s a good sign.
