My girlfriend has been dating this guy for 8 years now - she just found out that he cheated on her twice during their relationship with someone he had dated before. They've had a really rocky relationship but have managed to stick it out. So he's going through this spiritual journey and has decided to confess to her. She came over crying last weekend and i really had no good advice for her. I've known them for a long time and i was really surprised because they'd gone through so many obstacles (his family, her family, lay offs..etc). He's asked her to marry him....to start over with a clean slate.I'm not really sure what to say about that. Does his confession mean he's truly sorry and she should accept? Or is the old adage (sp?) true - once a cheater, always a cheater??
