Found out both my parents are cheating on each other
I [22M] found out my mother is cheating on my dad 6 years ago, was using her phone for some random I don’t even know what it was thing when a message popped up on the screen.
When I confronted her about it she begged me not to tell my dad and how this was all a mistake and she was just lost and won’t do it again,
me being young I kept the secret, the problem is… during those 6 years I caught her 7 more times, my dad is oblivious to it… or simply doesn’t care.
And to be honest this really fucked me up mentally, I have not been able to have a healthy relationship since..
Today my father forgot his phone at home and he received a call from an unknown number, I thought this was him and answered, a woman answered calling him sweet names before I could even reply..
I hung up, I do not know if I should tell him about it, our relationship is hard enough as it is.
I got two younger brothers that I am practically taking care of and I understand why my parents are sneaking around, they are not meant for each other,
but I feel if I did tell my dad when I was younger all of that never would have happened, I always used to tell my mom I do not care what she does but she has to get a divorce first,
cheating is disgusting and really affected me in a hurtful way.
