I am a 38-year-old divorced mother of three. I am engaged to a man that I once thought to be PERFECT. He has three kids from his previous marriage, also. We have been together for five years and those have been some of the best and worst years of my life. During the beginning of our relationship he did everything right, everything perfect. His behavior at times was weird and I never knew why until recently. About six months ago we both decided to rejoin our church and get saved. That same day he confessed all of the many issues he had about himself. He told me that he was doing drugs (cocaine) for the first three years of our relationship. He also confessed that he had met up with a couple of females from his past, some new ones also, but never slept with any of them. He said this was all done during a time in our relationship that we were on the outs. I was hurt and angry but I forgave him and thanked him for coming clean. However, for the last month I have done nothing but think about the things he told me. I'm constantly looking at his eyes to see if he looks high, trying to keep up with every cent that he brings home from work, checking his cell phone for numbers I don't know. To be frank, my trust is gone. Feels like I have two full-time jobs, my job and being a private investigator. Am I over reacting? Should I leave the past in the past and believe that the man who comes home every night is changed and who he says he is, or is the saying true, that once a liar always a liar?
