    If You Learned One Of Your Parents Was Unfaithful What Would You Do?

    Let's say your parents were in their 80s and you found positive proof one of them had a brief affair way back when they were young. Would you do or say anything to them or blow it off as a nothing burger?

    I wouldn’t say a thing. If they’ve made it this far and are now in their 80’s, you bringing up might drastically change your relationship. What I would do instead is write a letter to ‘whomever it is,’ and get all your frustration, disappointment and disbelief out of your system. Then burn it and celebrate your maturity for handling it better than you initially wanted to.

    Of course not! First off, it would be none of my business, and it would take a mean, resentful person to bring up such a thing and possibly cause problems between my elderly parents or least make them (even for just the one of them) feel bad about something that happened in the distant past.

    Only if I thought I might be the issue of the affair and for health reasons only, would I feel the need to ask. But I really couldn't say for sure what I'd do even then...

    Many, many years ago, nope, wouldn't say a word.

    Wow, me being known as a "mouthy person" and I saying that. Yep.

    Not my business. Nothing for me to do, especially at this late date.

    If it was likely to involve my parentage I might consider it, otherwise no, not my business, nobody knows what goes on within a marriage and I would respect their privacy

    That's just what I meant Wren, only if it involved my parentage (If I was the issue)- maybe.

    If we're ever in a situation where I am "the voice of reason", then we are in a very, very bad situation.
