Don’t be fool and trust a sexual perpetrator.  Go to the appropriate authorities!!! Help your daughter file charges, or if she is too young, file them yourself!  Sexual abusers are repetitive abusers.  They like it.  They find people they can manipulate with promises.
Michelle - If your daughter has been raped by your husband, he has violated her and you.  You and your daughter are both victims. She has lost a parent she should be able to trust.  You have lost a husband that you cannot trust. Raping your daughter is Marital Infidelity!  If your husband was truly repentant, he would turn him self in, face the charges and public discredit. He would do everything in his power to take the blame himself, and give you and her the time and space to see changes in him.  True repentance encompasses a changed heart and appropriate actions to right the wrongs.  It then take time(years) to rebuild what has been destroyed.  (I doubt your husband has done anything like that.)  He is doing the opposite. He wants to say “I’m sorry”, make up and have sex with you and probably will continue “doing” your daughter on the side.  He wants your silence and your consent!!!!
Forgiveness can be offered, but trust should take an appropriate time to rebuild.  Forgiveness does not mean you let him have access to you or your daughter again.  You can offer forgiveness whenever you soul allow you to let go of the issue, but you are not required to trust that individual just because you forgive him.  If he is repentant, there are no expectations of you from his part.  Repentance requires us to accept what we do and accept the penalty for that behavior.  He will acknowledge that he is wrong and that his actions bring on a justifiable distrust, concern and rejection on your part. If he is truly repentant, he will accept your conditions of how you and your daughter need to deal with the situation.
Michelle -  go to the authorities today!  Don’t let him have more opportunities.
In case you are wondering, no I am not a counselor.  I am an engineer, a believer and a father.  I have been thru a 20 year abusive marriage and divorce.  I am now dealing with what some would call parental alienation.  Life isn’t always wonderful, but how we respond before God in tough situations indicates who you are deep inside.

What about when your husband sleeps with my daughter(his stepdaughter ), and then thinks that because he repented that it’s all ok now, which is not true? You can’t make it better with I’m sorry and that God forgave him. There really is no come back from that
