Her past has got nothing to do with her present as the circumstances may be different. Did she cheat in the past? Was she with a partner when she had the one-night stands? If so, Maria is right. But if she was single then surely she is entitled to your trust? In any event, she is with YOU now, and she chooses to be. You are not even in a position to 'forgive' her for her past as all the things she did was long before she met you.

I know someone who was extremely promiscous when she was single but once married she settled down and one wouldn't guess she was so wild.

It is difficult call as her past behaviour could indicate possible future behaviour ! However,if you love her enough you could give a chance to prove herself.Don't rush into anything though and take things a step at a time.It will be tough on you as you will always be wondering if she is being faithful or not.

i always say "trust someone until they prove to be untrustworthy". If that makes any sense to you? maybe is should take my own advise!!

The best (but not foolproof) predictor of future behaviour is past behaviour. Maybe you can give some more information? Are you in a relationship with someone who used to be promiscuous and now claims to be "reformed"? It's possible, but unlikely.
