If you know your dad is cheating on your mom, would you tell your mom?

Let them deal with their own problems. unless either my dad or mom are completely oblivious and slowly grinding one of them down, I couldn't stand for that. Thats the only time I would step in, If one or the other is intentionally doing it just to slowly destroy their relationship, but other than that.

I would seriously treat them like any other couple in this situation.

but my mom would never cheat, and neither would my dad, So If it really came down to it I wouldnt know who to feel sorry for.

Fuck it, if you are that childish to cheat on someone sort out your own problems. Just the thought of it angers me now that you think about it.

Probably just shut them out until they solved the problem, and give support to either of them if they need it. Family comes first, but Im not going to fight your own battles. Grow the fuck up.

I would probably tell if there was solid evidence to prove one or the either was cheating. The reason being would purely be because of the possible spread of STDs. This happened to the parents of a friend of mine, and the aftermath was devastating. While I understand that feelings change, people grow apart, and that we (for the most part) love our parents, our parents still make mistakes. I would most certainly want to protect and bring awareness to the one who did not know what had happened or was happening.

I would do what I would want my kids to do and let the other parent know - rip the bandage fast and let them deal with the pain for less time than if it was on-going for years and years until they finally find out. They probably already would know though and just stick with them for the life-style or because of kids. For example, I know someone who has a husband who openly admits he has 2 side girls but she is okay with it because he chose to marry and stay with her and only visit the other two occasionally. I wouldn't be okay with it myself, but some people are okay with it. I just make my choices by thinking "What would I want someone else to do to me? Would I want them to tell me or keep it a secret to keep the fake relationship together? Yes, tell me please."

Say you are married 5 years and are cheated on and told then vs. finding out at year 15 that your significant other betrayed you for 10 years.

depends on your parents. if ur mom if unforgiving then consider talking to your dad alone first. If your dad is abusive then consult you mom first. if your dad is explosive consult them together so that ur dad is less likely to aim his hatred at you alone. if your parents are understanding then consider talking to them together or if you want your parents to stay together then talk to your dad alone or no one at all. Cheating is wrong we can all agree on that but sometimes not saying anything is the safer move unless she is likely to find out cause if she does and she also finds out u knew then things will never be the same not saying she will hate you because u are her child but deep inside their is likely to be some sort of hate or distrust in her heart. Good luck. just consider the type of people your parents are first is all im saying.

Nope, wouldn't tell my mom. She would have already known about it way before I would have.

I don't mind the extra siblings, they just can't have my inheritance.

I would ask my parents their point of view or give them a second chance.

confront my dad, tell him to do what is right of him. if he doesn't in due time, then i'll tell my mum.

whatever happens next i'm not too fussed about, as long as it's not destructive.

depends on how both relationships are, the current and the other one.

Reflecting on this, I wonder how you would know. I can only really think of one way to be totally certain...

My parents were divorced when I was a late teen because of infidelity. A while before I was told about it, I had started having dreams of my parents getting separated or divorced because of the infidelity of the parent who in reality was cheating. So, when I was taken aside and informed about the situation, I was not the least bit surprised. Now, this is not to say I'm psychic, because I'm not, but it is amazing how much your brain can piece together from various clues and then display the results of its automatic investigations through your dreams.

On topic, I would probably ask to speak to both parents at the same time and let them know what I knew of the situation. I would let them deal with it and let them know that I was there for them if they needed someone to speak to. But, I would stop either parent if the began to trash talk and let know I didn't want to hear garbage about either parent.

I would disown them both.

Wait, I already did. Too late.
