We’ve built fences around us They touch the sky

Dear Malvika, I recently came to know that my husband has been cheating on me with his ex on the phone. We have been married for four years now. When I learnt that he is cheating on me with his ex despite our seven years’ relationship, I felt betrayed. When I told this to his family they said since we are married it’s better for us to solve this issue together. He says he will never do this again and is willing to start a new life if I don’t bring up his past. How can I trust him now? Every time I see him, it reminds me of his cheating and betrayal. I love him very much, but I can quit our relationship if it is required. Please help me with your suggestion.
