    Interesting points:

    Do we have to know the absolute truth about something in order to move on, regardless of how much it may hurt us to hear it? Larry already knew it was over between him and Anna. Did he just need additional reason to hate her even more so that he wouldn't be miserable without her in his life (or at least think he wouldn't)? Are the details of the crime vital to justify the actions?

    Or did he just want to encourage Anna's own suffering even further as some type of vengeance by having her reveal her "crime" for him in detail.

    Although they both meet each other with the intent that they will be breaking-up due to their own indiscretions, Larry is able to throw light on Anna's behaviour in order to be able to verbally spit at her in the end.

    If you were in his place, would you want to know the sordid details so you'll have closure in order to seal any lingering questions- so that you could move on or feel better about what is happening?

    I think the interesting part is the fact that both are true... he "believes" it will help him get over here and enjoys tormenting her, thinking he's rebalancing the scales somehow. He's also likely acting out of his own guilt.

    I Don't think it's necessary to know all the details, why? what would it accomplish?

    I think in cases of infidelity it's a tricky subject.

    I don't think it's always a case of you needing to tell however.

    If you make a mistake and you are truly intent of it never happening again then your guilt is yours to carry alone as a reminder of the trust you have broken and what you need to do to repair that trust (even while he might not know of the trust that is broken, you will)

    if you plan on breaking up with them, that's a dilly of a pickle really, if you are leaving because of the other people well.. they should know who you really are, but if you are breaking up because the relationship just isn't working then they don't really need to know about the infidelity.
