I am disgusted by the fact that my bff is having an affair w/ a married man. She lost her own husband to an undetected heart ailment 5 yrs. ago and I believe that subconsciously she is set on destroying other families.
She is friends w/ this woman. They have playdates together and has even volunteered to babysit their kids while they are away on a weekend getaway. I have suggested my friend seek psychotherapy but it angers me to no end to see that she has no regret and shame over what she is doing. I believe that we may lose friendship over this as I can't sit by and condone her behavior.

Tell the other woman, anonymously. Problem solved.
Ever heard of shooting the messenger? I wouldn't tell her, it would be worse and lots of wives don't even believe when they actually see it. Denial. I have a friend like this, I have lost all respect for her but I will always love her. She knows how I feel but I cannot change her behavior. I would be watching her around my DH though for sure!

Tell your friend you love her and know she is going through a lot of pain and as your friend you want to be there for her, but that you can not stand by and watch her destroy her life and her kids life. Let her know if she gets help or changes her ways you are glad to be there for her, but until that happens it hurts to much to watch her hurt herself even more.
