If you had a good long standing friend who has not long settled down with a partner, a very young family and a house together, acting out of character and getting "fruity" with someone else, would you turn a blind eye or say something?

I think I would try and have a quiet word with him or her pointing out what they have, what they could loose and what an idiot they are being. Would think at first they would deny it to you though. One of those things you wished you didn't know.

I would definitely have a word with him/her, even if it means losing a friend. He / she is being a selfish plonker, just thinking about himself / herself. He / she is going to mess up a lot of lives if he / she continues with what they are doing.

I would lay it out pretty square to them the idiot that they are been and the trouble that they are going to cause. I wouldn't care about our friendship. friends come and go.

I think in this case you have to be careful, tactful in mentioning it. I have no advice for you on this am afraid, I have some suggestions but I'm afraid they would most likely not work. I will say this tho, be wary. If you say to them for example, if you know he's actually cheating, that you will give him a few hrs to tell his partner and you're going to tell her whatever. There is the likelihood that he will then go back to her and spin her a story about you and when you tell her she won't believe you. I'm not sure what I would do in this case tbh. Not saying don't do anything, because that wouldn't be right at all, but if you do just be careful :)

My first instinct was to have a word with him and tell him what a willy he is being.. After some thought I decided he's an "adult" and it's no one's place to tell someone else how to live thier life.

Sadly my concern is now pretty irrelevant, his partner found messages on his phone, it would seem there's more been going on than any of us knew.

:(:(:(

I'm really sorry to hear about this. It must be really awful :( some people just have no qualms about stuff tbh. Sometimes, I'm not making any excuses for him btw, when people have been single a long time it's pretty hard to adjust to married life. It is still inexcusable tho. Marriage is a sacred thing between 2 people and if he wasn't ready for that he really shouldn't have bothered getting married. I just feel sorry for the kids tbh :cry::((n)
