Hiya
My mate's just found out her mum is having an affair. I was just wondering if anyone else had been in this situation, and if so, could you offer any advice that I could pass on to my mate? Her dad doesnt know yet, I'm not sure whats going to happen there.
Any help much appreciated
Stay beautiful xx

    I think shit is going to fly when her dad finds out - your mate will need a lot of support then. Is your mate planning on telling her dad?
    The best things in these situations is just to let your mate know that they can talk to you cos whenever there is a rocky patch, kids always are the ones caught in the middle i.e love for the parent, but guilt for feeling love since the parent cheated.
    Perhaps if the going gets tough, your mate can talk to a pro, cos it can be hard to open up about family situations.
    hope this helps <IMG SRC="smile.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    well your mate should talk to her mum first before she runs to her dad coz she should like ask her mum why and that she cant go on having this affair without ending or stopin the affair or ending the marriage

    definitly agree with this, it is better that she gets the facts from her mum before she goes to her dad - her mum should be the one to speak to her dad, apart from this all you can really do is just be a good friend - listen to her...just be there for her if they do split up, she'll need a good friend - i have been there, my mum had an affair ( who is now my step dad ) it was very hard when they spilt up and sympathise for anyone else who goes through it.
