I’m sure part of him is afraid you’ll break his brother’s heart (I would be very leery of it) but I don’t see any harm in trying to clear the air with him.

I dont see how you can clear the air with him just by talking or taking him out to lunch. You telling him that he can trust you isnt going to change anything. I think you should take your FI’s advice and just give it time. With time they will come to realize that this time your mind is made up to stay with your Fiance. Actions speak louder than words.

@TwoCityBride:  I think your last response it right on.  Yes, it will probably take time for his brother to trust that you won’t hurt his brother and for things to go back to being “normal.”  However, I think you may make some progress and gain back some respect if you open up to him.  If you explain you know you were confused and made a mistake going back to your ex before, but the feelings you have for your Fiance cannot be overlooked and that he is the person you want to be with.  Now you have no doubts.  That may help ease some of the tension, and at least give him some insight that you do care how he (brother) views you and you want to make things right.
