Toxic Relationship: Mom caught in bed with another man

Share this

My parents have been married for like 20 years and this was a shock to me, to say the least.

My dad was at work and I came home from a friend’s house unexpectedly. They were in the living room and I saw the guy roll off of my mom and pull some clothes on when he saw me.

My mom was embarrassed obviously and tried to explain it away but later that night she told me she made a mistake and to please not tell my dad. I feel like I am closer to my mom than my dad but I love them both and I am really feeling like it’s wrong for me not to say something to my dad.

I just feel bad for him knowing that he has no idea of what is going on in the relationship. I feel like my mom should tell him what happened, but if she doesn’t, is that my place? These were the thoughts that ran through my head.

My mom has begged me not to and says it will never happen again. I am not sure if I believe her, though. My mom and dad seemed happy in their relationship and this is all just so shocking to me.

I don’t know how to move past it but I did not want to be a bad egg that will bring the divorce to my parents.
