Today’s What Would You Do Wednesday scenario, I believe, and hope will appeal to both my male and female audience. In fact I would truly love to hear some male perspective on it. I find it fascinating how much we differ on the matter of infidelity, or sex in general. YB said something to me the other night, it was a totally innocent, casual response to a question I had for him, and the way I interpreted his response was so outside of what he thought I would think that we were both left scratching our heads. Our differences never cease to amaze me.
So come with me on this Wednesday journey. Picture this; you’re close friends with another couple, you come to discover, either because the cheating person in the other coupling told you, or you physically saw them with the person who is NOT their other half: your friend is having an affair. Not a; “man I was traveling, met this woman/man while out of town, had sex” scenario, not a one night, no further contact, just a one night step outside of the coupling indiscretion. I’m talking about you now have information about one of the people inside that relationship is involved in a full fledged second relationship. This is not speculation, you have been told right from the horses mouth, or witnessed it with your own eyes.
What would you do??
a) encourage your friend to end things with their lover, and get their head back in the game of their marriage/partnership, and then both stay mom on the matter?
b) you immediately go to the half of the couple who is being cheated on and tell them what is going on?
c) would you give the friend a timeline to come clean on their cheating ways or else you’ll go to the partner?
d) stay out of it, because couples seem to always work their shit out on their own, and they will most likely stay together and you would rather preserve the friendship that you have with them???
I cannot wait to hear what you all would do if in this position!
Happy Hump Day Friends.
