  • That is a hard one. First of all what difference will it make if he knows, other than hurt feelings? He certainly can't make his father stop what he's doing. But if your husband does find out from someone else do you tell him you already knew or pretend you didn't and act shocked. Does your husband have a good relationship with his father? If he does then something like this could change that relationship and not for the good. I would not tell him, I would pretend that I never knew and act shocked if it does ever come out. Just my opinion. Good luck.

  • I'd tell him. He's your HUSBAND!! You shouldn't have secrets from one another.

  • If you know for sure that he is cheating (and it is not just a rumor) then I would tell the husband.

  • Would you want to know if it were flipped? I would. Tell him.

  • I'm not you and I don't know your husband.  This could be a case of people know but don't acknowledge kinda thing.  I can only say what I would do. So how do you know he's cheating?  Did you see him with someone else?  If so then I would have made sure that he saw me and let him know that his butt was busted.  I would definitely tell my hub.

  • I'd tell him. What would happen if he found out from someone else, and then found out you knew all along? Besides, you're husband is supposed to be the one person in the world you can be completely, 100% honest with.
