Like a lot of SIers there has been several D day's . I'm in the same boat so I want to know if you ask question about past D day's or do you only ask about the current D day ? My WW has answered my question about the current D day but very little about past A . Would you want to know ?

Yes, I sure would. I believe it all needs to come in out in order to successfully reconcile. And that failure to adequately address previous affairs partly led to another. So, that would be a pretty major requirement for me to keep working on the relationship.

So sorry you are in that situation though. Yuck.

Absolutely, we deserve to know everything that's happened in our marriages. I asked about earlier affairs, ONS's, whether all four children were mine, you name it. My wife's answers, and the way she answered, convinced me that I was dealing with just one affair (LTA, though). It's important to know whether you are dealing with a fallen women who went off the rails one time, or a serial cheater who cannot or will not control her behavior without intensive IC.

Knowledge is power.

Sorry you find yourself in this situation, hang in there.

That was one of my polygraph questions: have you had sexual relations with any other women that I am not aware of? I have been glad to know.

Your WS's life needs to be an open book. Coming clean is the number 1 thing a WS can do to start rebuilding trust.

Not answering questions is being untruthful and dishonest by omission, and you can't R with a dishonest person - and a WS can't become a decent partner if she's not being honest.

The more honest and open the WS is -the easier it is to believe what they say.

I needed to know everything.

And I also asked questions about whether or not this was the only OW etc.

The more questions he was willing to answer the more I began to believe him.

I needed to know everything before I could decide on R.
