Would you tell your Friend about their Cheating Partner?
Cheating hurts people around you
Telling a friend about the cheating partner could make, or break your friendship.
Sometimes, telling a friend about their cheating partner may not be such a good idea.
What happens afterward?
Do you think children from cheating marriages will follow in the same footsteps?
Will telling your friend ruin your friendship?
When a friend is being treated with such disrespect by their partner, the whole cheating act can be hurtful and is a completely wrong act.
The friend would be distraught by the whole affair, and you will have to face up to a greater challenge.
Your friend is not aware of the affair, and continues to trust their partner thinking they are in a good marriage, or relationship.
It is not your fault your friend is affected by adultery.
In telling your friend all feels and seems like the right thing to do. Overall, it is not the best of ideas to blurt out to a friend of the affair.
You could try to focus on what you think is better to do, but the outlook of the act won't see fit.
You think you are doing right by telling your friend of the affair but you are doing more wrong than right.
How would you handle such in certainties about the affair?
Would you do the right act or the best act?
Are you comfortable in telling your friend of their cheating partner?
You want to be faithful friend and guide your friend in a cheating situation. Such decisions can be most difficult.
It is your friend's life, and marriage, not yours.
What would my friend want me to do?
Respect the wishes of others.
I won't mention a word!
I am not the kind of person who would go up to a friend and tattle about her cheating partner.
Whatever goes on with a couple is their problem.
It would be the worst if I had to say anything to a friend.
What if the friend tells me they have a certain understanding about the affair issues?
The problem is sorted out and both have an arrangement.
What would I then have say to all of that?
I know I would feel like a fool if I said anything.
Poking my nose in someone else's life is not the right attitude.
You may think you are helping your friend when all you are doing is creating more problems.
Your friend is unaware of the affair and you are trying to tell her about it will make a good friendship a bad one.
If your friend is aware of the cheating more options are available.
When you interfere in the lives of others lots can go wrong in the friendship you once treasured.
I think it is better for the friend to find out for his or herself.
The cheating partner must come out with it.
I will offer to be there for my friend. To be a friend, to share ideas or concepts from the experience but will not interfere in any way.
Friends do watch out for each other’s backs, but in a cheating situation it is best for the friend to keep quiet.
It is how I feel about such issues.
In a crisis, it is better to be there to listen and talk about the problem than to tell on each other.
Be able to show an interest and help wherever you can and do so with caution.
The series of events in a marriage allows for strengths and weaknesses to be n and dealt with.
In trying to make other couples' lives fit from your side won't workout.
I don't believe anyone should get involved in these situations.
The couple met and married each other and knew one another well enough to fix their issues. You getting involved will worsen the complex situation.
Everybody has to go through these events.
I would be there to comfort a friend and learn from these experiences.
It is different in the role of a friendship. Friends talk about issues bothering each other, and have secrets if necessary.
Advising your friend is also a different option taken. You can't guide, or develop your friend's life. It is not something you can do as you would when parenting your child.
You can teach your child, and shape your child's development. In a friendship you respect the boundaries of each other.
Avoid stepping over these boundaries.
Respect your steps taken when in a friendship.
The friend won't always find out so easily without anyone bringing the affair to their attention.
It shouldn't be you to tell your friend!
An affair will hurt any member of the family as it would hurt you in the friendship.
It is risky to tell your friend of the affair.
Some individuals will find it as the better idea to tell the friend of the affair.
I feel it is a wrong way of assessing the problem.
Would you confront the cheater?
Confrontation with the cheater can be looked as you are going behind your friend's back. Keeping him, or her out in the dark about the cheating.
You are being disrespectful to your friend.
Your friend has to take charge of their own problems not with you intervening.
Are you able to handle the situation?
How would you assess the cheating issue?
What happens when the couple has a separation agreement, and decide to get back together after a while spent apart?
Where would you be placed?
How would you feel?
Sometimes friends don't want to get into the affairs of friends.
Certain individuals enjoy getting involved in the lives of others.
A friend found out that her best friend's husband was cheating on her.
She got the cheater to one side of the room and told him that she knows about his affair.
She told the cheating husband there is no way that she will keep the cheating a secret from her best friend.
The cheater did not confess to his wife. In the end the wife found out about the affair from viewing text messages between him and her.
Being a friend shows in your weaknesses and in strengths.
Some friends do feel it is right to tell a friend about their cheating partners.
They feel it shows concern about their well-being.
Friends need support and a true friend can give you that.
Do you see yourself as a good friend, if you tell your friend about their cheating partner?
People cheat so often these days, and you trying to be a good friend in helping out, may not always play a correct role for many couples.
A friend has to know when to get involved in their friend’s lives.
Certain situations are bad.
Once the cheating goes public many lives can be ruined.
What are friends for in life?
Why do you have friends?
Friends supposed to be there for each other throughout all times.
To trust one another with secrets and to be able to social with a free mind.
A friendship requires respect and honesty.
When it comes to such complicated issues, it is best to confide in each other about such problems.
Telling a friend about their partner cheating is not the best idea.
It is not your place to tattle.
You could do more harm than good when tattling.
Nobody asked you, so stay out of it!
It is like you pruning someone else's garden when you haven't been asked to.
These problems don't need you the friend to bud in.
Bud in when you are asked to help out at a bad time.
Couples need to sort out their own issues.
When you wait your turn you show respect for the needs of your friend.
Marriages are not perfect, and sometimes the advice given does not help from a friend, or a family member.
Work out what it is good for you and for your friend.
Great words from a Singer
I can't deal with someone wanting to take a relationship backward or needing space or cheating on you.
