I Told My Friend's Husband About Her Cheating. Now I Feel Guilty

Date May 28, 2019 11:30

We have to admit that cheating is quite a widespread phenomenon. If you are married and some third person finds out about it, there's very little chance it will stay a secret. In such cases, friends are often left with making the tough choice of whether or not to tell their friend about her husband's affair. And they rat out their friends to their partners without figuring out the situation completely.

On one forum, a woman shared her story, asking for advice about when one should interfere and let one's friend's husband know that she's cheating. She opted to open the man's eyes to his wife's betrayal because she didn't like the fact that her friend, at the age of 29, has been married three times and each time she cheated on her partners. However, after the truth came out, the bringer of bad news started to feel guilty and shared her feelings on the forum.

Users' opinions divided: some of them supported the girl; others judged. Some users also shared their stories of when they found out about the betrayal of their partners.

Many people asked questions: Why did she do it secretly instead of talking to her friend first to understand the whole situation? Why does she call that woman her friend if she does something a friend wouldn't do to her and speaks so badly about her?

Still, the overall mood of the comments went like this: don't interfere in other people's relationships, let the partners figure it out on their own. The main argument being that every person's life should be only their own business and it shouldn't concern anyone else.

What do you think about this? Would you tell your friend about her partner's cheating if you found out about it?
