I'm currently on probation & repenting from breaking the law of chastity, do I have to tell my new return missionary boyfriend?

I am LDS. Wondering whether it is necessary for him to know or whether Heavenly Father's forgiveness is enough.

I'm always suspicious of first time users asking a bizarre LDS question here on ask.com.
If you really are LDS you should already know the answer. If you don't already know the answer you certainly know who you should be asking. Why would someone who is LDS ask a bizarre question like this online?

Sorry, but you sound suspiciously like an anti-Mormon who posts this kind of stuff who's been gone awhile but I see from other questions is back.

Haha, yup, one question only. Unbelievable!! Some people are seriously disturbed. I thought that probation thing was a bit bizarre sounding.

Yeah. I don't get the whole mentality. If you want to find fault with any religion you'd think you could do so openly. This sneaky and deceptive behavior says a lot for what they must believe in. As I said before, satan is the father of all lies.

Oh yes. Well I said "wow"'and meant to look then but got sidetracked. Just looked and sure enough, one question which makes it obvious. People are getting more ridiculous by the day Rain.

Yes Rain, I thought the same thing as I read the question. I've seen them before.

Well just for the record I am an active member and was just wondering if other members would have encountered the same situation and could give me an answer. This was something that was genuinely worrying me. I looked it up on lds.org to see if I could find an answer to my question but obviously it's pretty specific so I was directed to here. But to Raining Star I guess you're right, why ask the internet when I could have gone to see someone who can give me real information, so I did. I'm happy with the answer I received, although I was embarrassed to ask.
This kind of question is not something that you can just ask to anybody, that's why I submitted it on here. It's not the kind of thing that I, or others, would openly like to talk about (especially when I am very regretful of what I have done and don't wish to share this information with others).
That's why it was my first (and last) question on Ask.com, because in any other situation I would not refer to the internet for advice.

I'm delighted you got the help you needed. Sorry to be suspicious of you, but you know that anti-Mormons use all kinds of deceitful behavior to spread their lies about the church.

I know what you are going through from personal experience. The pain of dealing with it today will make for a more rewarding future.
Good luck in all you do.

It will be good for him to know because, accidentally, he might come to find out in the future. Truth will prevail. It might make things worse between you two if he happens to find. Explain yourself and ask for forgiveness.

That's something you need to pray about and decide with the guidance from Christ. If others know it's best to tell him yourself first tho. Since you are not married it might be best for him to know whether he can trust your vows or not. If you were married I'd say leave it alone unless others know.

That must be an LDS doctrine. Because Jesus said that we can go straight to the Father, and that no man has to stand between for us, but Jesus Himself will...

That's not LDS doctrine. This is most likely a bogus question posted by an anti-Mormon who keeps creating new accounts pretending to be new people asking these kinds of bizarre questions trying to make Mormons look odd. Pretty pathetic.

There's no such thing as probation in the LDS church. This is a bogus question posted by an anti-Mormon.

Honesty is always the best policy. You would probably want to know if HE cheated on you.
