I think you should ask your friends if they have concrete reasons for not trusting your partner. Weight it out and also listen to your partner's side of the situation. Good luck.... and I am sure you will make the right decision.

hi, the first thing i want to say to u is that he is human and yes what he did was wrong but if you have chosen to forgive him then that is understandable. Afterall he did not cheat on you physically but he more or less looked for an escape from reality for whatever reason. you have spoken to him and have an understanding i hope of why he did it.

if you do love him, then let your friends know and if they are trully ur friends they should respect your decision. i understand they may not want to let it go but he is remorseful and wants to make amends so they should try to find a way past it. if u r happy then its ur happiness that matters.Your friensdship should not be directed by how your relationship goes with him.

remember nobody is perfect!!! have they not made mistakes which u have forgiven? if their partners did something you did not like would u make ur friensdhip with them difficult!! i hope not
