  • I would confront the cheating parent. I'd talk to them about what they found out, and give them an opportunity to fess up to the other parent. I'd give them a deadline, and let them know that if they don't fess up, I'll be doing it for them. Eventually the other parent will find out, and they'll be hurt if you didn't say anything.

  • I would let the one that is doing the cheating know that I know and give them the chance to tell them self and if they didnt than I would

  • That's really a hard one. I would probably let my parents know, only because I'd feel horrible keeping a secret like that.

  • Five years ago I would have, but now I wouldn't. My dad is dying and it would serve no purpose but to ruin the end of his life.

  • I would talk to the cheating parent and tell them you know. if the other parent finds out there is cheating going on and that you knew and didn't tell them, I figure that they would be pretty hurt by you keeping such a secret. If my husband was cheating and my daughter knew i would hope she would tell me and not let me continue to look like an idiot getting cheated on.

  • I met my dads mistress 2 days after I left my ex for cheating on me. I was furious at him and shocked by his behavior. I never said anything to my mom because she suffers from clinical depression and makes all of our lives miserable. Call me crazy, but I kind of understood why my dad was doing it, though it didn't make it right! A few years later I found out my mother had known the whole time. My dad had been doing it for years and my mom let him. My parents are still together 'for the kids'; but honestly they make us kids miserable!
