I think a lot of the people here are underestimating how difficult this situation would be.

One guy said he would go out and beat up the mother's uh.. well the person she's cheating with. Like.. what a facepalm thought, that you could, or would, actually do that. Some people look at themselves like superheroes who never hesitate.

The people choosing a cautious path are the ones being realistic, not these people who say they'd charge in and ruthlessly rat out one of their own parents. Which is something you would regret for a very long time.

This is a huge hypothetical, as my father is dead, and when he was alive I don't believe he is one to do that. However, speaking in the hypothetical scenario I would let him know, very subtly, that I am aware, and hope that he has the sense to realize that he should be the one to make that information known.

I would definitely say something! I would tell the parent who is being cheated on about it. If I had evidence, I would show it. It would be beyond painful for everyone in the family, but it would be just as horrible to know something like that and keep it s secret while my parent is being played for a fool.


I agree with this. The parent being cheated on should definitely have the right to know. I would also be there to support the parent in the tough situation. Telling them is hard but keeping it from them is even worse.

My mom did cheat but I did not know until she left us to live with the other guy
Not sure what I would have done had I known before.

Are we talking about a hooker or a side girlfriend? After you're old enough to live without the parents, then drop the news. You need that $$.

This would really depend on your parents and your relationship with them. Do you have a solid relationship with your dad? Is your dad the kind of person that would take responsibility for his choices and do the right thing? The same goes with your mom. What is your relationship with her like? Can you tell her everything or does she prefer to live in a bubble?

I would probably inform your mom and show her the proof that this is going on. She needs to be able to make her own decision on this and decide on where to go from here.

Those talking about telling only the cheating parent or keeping out of it entirely out of empathy for the cheating parent show they have no empathy for the parent being cheated on. When the parent who has been getting cheated on finds out, however long down the road, that their spouse has betrayed them and also finds that their child has betrayed them as well, who can they turn to for support?

Get it on video and blackmail. After a while, I'll tell my mother I blackmailed Dad so he got some punishment and then have her divorce him. I hate him anyways. He stripped me when I was young. I hope he does cheat on her, because she doesn't deserve him.

So, what would you do?



Stay the F&*k out of it. This has to do with your parents relationship, not yours. It may hurt you, however it is not your place to speak to your parents about this subject, they are not your friends. Try speaking to your grand parents, it is their job to straighten up their children. If not the parents, then your parents siblings. Whatever you do, as your parents child, do not approach your parents on this subject. The backlash and destruction that will follow, you will regret for the rest of your life. This is for those who have more control over your parents to handle. You may think you can do this, but can't. If my child approached me on a subject of this level, it wouldn't go well. I regret it every day, and I will regret it forever what I told one of my parents, I thought truth would be freedom.....so wrong.... I know others who have tried this, not good. We definitely have some modicum of control over the parents, however, this absolutely stops at their relationship, because it existed before we came.

Sit tight, and weather the storm, this kind of thing happens to people. Be mature. If you so choose, seek out you G parents, even then I wouldn't suggest it.

I have to disagree there Steel. At the very least confront the cheating party and give them a chance. Relationship is all about consent, not lies. It's wrong to expect something pleasant, but the longer a lie persists, the larger it'll blow up if it does blow up.
