In response to the further information you require my husband hit his ex-girlfriend once when he found out she had slept with his mate while he was at work .he was taken to court and was given a fine as punishment.

I hope this will help.

Thank You .


It is impossible to say for certain.
Given how long ago it was and assuming that there was no repetition it is likely that this will NOT be a problem - but your husband would need to be honest about the matter from the start.
What is certain is that unless you ask you will never know - and we need more people like you to do this demanding task
Please ask if you need further details
