Alright so we coverred off exams- How would ou deal with knowing that your friend is cheating on her SO. You're closer with your friend than her SO, but your SO is closer with her SO.<br><br>
You will get flack from your SO if you don't tell.<br>
You may very well lose your friend if you do tell.

I would only mention it if the other person brought up suspicions or something along those lines, otherwise, nope, not even my business.

I would definitely not tell in some cases and would absolutely tell in others.<br><br>
I hope this incisive treatment of the subject matter helps you in your future endeavors.

Unless I actually SAW it with my own eyes. Confronted the cheater. Got confirmation.<br><br>
I'd still tread lightly. It's not my business.<br><br>
I would want to know.<br><br>
But I don't know if I would have it in me to break my friend's heart like that by telling them their spouse is cheating. I would leave the dirty work up to the cheating spouse.

Oh, if someone's spouse actually CAME ON to me.. I would totally tell.<br><br>
But then, again, I might chicken out and talk myself out of it. I would convince myself that it didn't happen the way I thought it did.. because really.. who would come on to ME???

Absolutely. Ick!<br><br>
Sometimes, it still doesn't matter though. I was at a family gathering at one of my aunt's houses and she had invited a couple that she knew from who knows where. At any rate, the husband made some over sexual overtures to another one of my aunts, but apparently, that's par for the course with this man and his wife still sticks around.

To clarify<br>
You are friends with the Cheater.<br>
Your SO is friends with the cheatee.<br>
You know for sure your friend is cheating because she comes to you and says "I saw my toy again last weekend... <i>Wow</i> <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">"

I'd try really hard to get my SO to tell since she's closer to the offended party.<br><br>
Again, I'd give my friend a chance to come clean first.

Did we have a hand in the cheatee and cheater getting together because then I'd likely feel too guilty to say anything.

To complicate things-<br>
Your friend the cheater sometimes uses you as her alibi when she's seeing her toy... <img alt="wink.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wink.gif">
