So I'm sitting here trying to figure out if I can ever trust my husband again...and I just realized something. What is trust??? Especially in a relationship.

The important question is 'What's trust to you?'

At almost 3 years out, my sense of trust in my W is coming back. I pretty much trust that she won't cheat or otherwise betray me, that she won't stop resolving the issues that have always stood between us, that she'll be honest with me. That may be all I need.

People can always screw up. Sometimes they screw up badly. The problem was only partly that she broke my trust. I also had a problem - I gave my trust totally, and nobody can be totally trusted.

I've had a lot of pain around trust. I don't think that can be avoided by a BS, so just keep posting for counsel and other support, and feeling your feelings and letting them go.
