Hello my name is Angela.
I am more than happy to assist you with your questions by giving you my honest and respectful opinion.

Based on what you have written, I suggest sitting down and talking to him about this again. Share with him how his lies have hurt you and how you naturally don't feel as if you can trust him. Then tell him what he can do in order for you to feel that you can trust him again and discuss these things. For example, do you want him to check in with you on a weekly basis so that the two of you can discuss this specific trust issue? Do you want him to read a book with you and discuss it as it pertains to you trusting him etc.? If you choose to read a book, a book I recommended to my clients dealing with the same situation, which they found helpful, can be found by clicking here:
