I caught my father on a date with a younger woman: Advice?

I caught my father having an affair, and I honestly do not know how to handle this. He and my mom have been married for 20 years, and the girl he was with was way younger than him. I saw them at a restaurant that I went to with my best friend. They were touching each other’s hands and clearly flirting. I don’t want to break my mother, she is going through so much health-wise, but I also feel like If I don’t say something to her, then I am lying to her. I took a picture of them but don’t know if I should use it or delete it. Please help.

Talk to your father to sort out your issues. It’s none of your business.

This is so sad… I would confront him first and tell him he needs to tell your mom. I’m so sorry for your family and your mom :broken_heart:

Your mother is already aware of your father’s infidelity. Instead of saying something to her, start with him. But be prepared. His reaction may not be one or remorse but of anger you found out

Talk to your dad. Hold off on telling your mom for the moment. They may have an understanding between them that you’re not aware of.

He’s a scoundrel. Let him know you are aware. Show him the picture. No words may be necessary. See what his reaction is.

Talk to your dad. Hell they might have a agreement you know nothing about.

Just because they were at a restaurant together and obvious flirting was going on, that does not mean they are having an affair. Sometimes when we assume it makes an ass out of you and me…if that makes sense. Talk to your dad before breaking your moms heart over something you dont have all the facts of.

No child should ever have to go through something like this ,but unfortunately life happens ,talk to your father ,tell him how you feel ,show him the picture ,his reaction could be either denying or admitting ,but either way it’s a painful situation for all parties involved ,most probably your mother know or has sensed his infedelity ways already ,no child wants to choose between a parent ,:sleepy::sleepy::sleepy:best of luck to you and your family
