I’m in my early 20s and most of the people involved in the story are the moms of my close friends, who are also really close “the mom squad”
Roughly 2 years ago one of my mom’s friends, Diane and her husband Jack (Fake names), who is my dads best friend, divorced. It was a pretty messy process and ended with Diane taking her half and blowing it on traveling around the world.
She is now completely broke and constantly complains about how Jack screwed her over. Jack mostly stays silent, even though his daughter my age believes everything her mom says and thinks he’s a terrible dad.
It sucks, he was always the fun dad in our group and growing up he would take us out to arcades and bars, generally, anything that was too dangerous or outdoorsy for our moms to do.
Today, Jack has a new girlfriend that he is starting to get serious with and Diane is still raking up drama with him, now accusing Jack of cheating on her.
My mom doesn’t involve herself in any drama and I’m really close with my dad, so I mostly hear about Diane’s side from their daughter and I’m the only person hearing about Jack’s side from my dad. The thing is, I’ve seen proof from my dad that Diane cheated on Jack multiple times throughout their marriage and the exact timeline of when he met his current gf.
This morning at brunch with my friends, Jack cheating came up and I held my tongue as I wasn’t sure if it was my place to say anything. I don’t know if Jacks aware of what Diane has been telling their daughter.
However, their son (who he has primary custody of) is giving him a really hard time about dating. I’m wondering if I should speak up, especially so his daughter can hear the whole story.
Does she deserve to hear his side which would clear his name even if he won’t say anything?
Should I expose?
