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

I might talk to him about it though, just to learn why and let him vent. I'd make it clear to him that I -don't- plan to take action, and just want to understand.

I really think we shouldn't treat cheating like mass murder of toddlers, like many people essentially do. It isn't an actual crime in our society for a reason.


it should be though

That's something I think would be best avoided.

The correct thing would be to confront your dad about it and get him to deal with the situation. The cowardly thing to do would be to run to your mother and tell her about it. It is better that they deal with their relationship problems themselves and not have you as a third wheel in what will inevitably be a giant mess.

You can be as righteous as your heart tells you to be, but you should consider what would happen if you got what you want.

Empathizing with "the bad guy" will take you much farther in life than blindly and brutally crushing him on sight. Try to understand, before you chop heads off and throw people in jail.

Cheating should still have a harsher punishment then it does now.

for that reason when i know someone has cheated i make it known to my friends and all those who i care about.

if it spreads? well bad luck for them they decided to cheat whatever happens is their fault :P

You cant emphasize with someone who has done wrong there is NOTHING ok with cheating.

Weird i would see it as the opposite the cowardly thing to me would be to keep quiet or confront the dad.

The best thing to do imo is to tell the person being cheated on as someone who has been cheated on multiple times i could never just let it go nor would i forgive someone from keeping that info from me that is just as bad as cheating itself.

If I knew how, I would've quoted way less here. I tried "quote selected" but.. yeah.

So lately I've been thinking about, and just recently talking about, the evil of the man who is doing the right thing.

Oftentimes, when someone sees themselves as the hero, they will be merciless and uncaring towards their enemy. Kind of like an eye for an eye, only its a finger lost for the hero, and every limb and a lung lost for the villain.

In this case it's someone runs afoul of this guy's -personal- moral code, repaid with a nuclear bombing on his life. Destroy it all, the hero says.

Well anyway, this guy is obviously the white knight type, who will stumble from one misguided punishment to the next his whole life, or change as he ages. We can only hope he changes, but I'm sure he will. He seems really young.

Also, the "you can't empathize with someone who has done wrong" is just ignorant. Of course you can, if you're ever willing to try.

fine you can but its misplaced Empathy as they have done wrong they are not in any right.
it's ignorant to go "but what about them" when they have cheated.

It's just misplaced empathy for a terrible person.

There is no correct thing to do in this situation. Nothing is mentioned about what the relationship is like between the parents and the child. That may determine how the child would react.

1) Contact Nakura and talk about how people are fake and some edgy bullshit.
2) Set up a suicide pact meeting.
3) Get kidnapped by human trafficking.
4) Saved by a headless motorcycle rider.
5) Meet up with Nakura who set up the whole thing all along.
6) Jump off the building and get saved by said headless rider.
7) Appreciate life and come out of it with a better understanding....Cathartic?

The funny thing about my parent's divorce is that neither of them were unfaithful, they just were long lacking in any kind of activity in general. So they grew to detest one another amid that and squabbling about debt.

Nah, I would've pushed Izaya's ugly little bitchass off the side of that building long before he tried to do so to me.
