That's tricky, and I guess it would be different with each person.<br />
It depends on what kind of character the person has. What the history is. Why that person betrayed you and in what way, and whether that was a reallly unusual thing for this person to do. People make mistakes, and a person who is usually very loyal and truthful is a lot more likely to be sorry for what he's done...not only that, but he will be ashamed, and he will do whatever he can to make up for what he's done. He'll also accept the fact that you are hurt and angry, and he won't resent anything that he's got coming in the form of blame or ramifications. He will fully realize that he doubtless deserves what he has coming, he will welcome the chance to make amends, and he will certainly realize that "I'm sorry" isn't going to be enough.

Does it matter? Betrayal is a major offense to most people. How a person shows remorse depends upon many factors including how close the relationship is between you two. If you two had sex frequently before this betrayal, he would regret not being able to have sex with you now. Would he have remorse? Maybe yes, maybe no. He may regret you having found out about his betrayal because it disrupted the status quo for him.<br />

Trust is earned. Once trust is lost, it takes much longer to get it back. So much so, in fact, that many people just give up and find new partners and friends to start anew with. You shouldn't be too quick to forgive. Make him earn your trust. If he gives up on you then so be it.

Great answer! I truly believe you can feel in your gut and in your heart if someone is remorseful. Recognizing the feeling is another matter if the person is NOT remorseful but claims he is.
