  • hes not still with this other woman right? i dont think id ask my husband to tell them because it would be an embarrassing thing to say 'hey mom and dad you know that girl Shirley youre friends with on FB, well i cheated on my wife with her so could you please take her off?'

    unless you mean to just ask them not to be her friend with no explanation, that might work. personally i would just try to move on

  • Very tough question. Sometimes "friends" on FB are anything but. Is this someone they really know well? I'd want them to know, because I'm vengeful like that, but I would hate the drama of more people (even family) knowing personal hardships. I'd say give yourself a time period (30 days, 60 days) and try to move on from it. If it still bothers you after that time, ask him to talk to them about removing them. All in all, you can't force someone like your in-laws to do anything, but if they care about you and also you and your husband's marraige, they may want to go along with it.

  • I am very careful about what I say on FB and the number of people that I associate with. If you two are still together why in the world is another woman associating with the in-laws? I definitely would have questions about that. I would make a point to ask your husband why.

  • Why don't you just tell them?

  • They may already know......she could be using them to get info on your husband and/or you..either way, I would ask your mil how does she know this person and depending on her answer I would ask her to remove her. I am sorry you are in rhis position
