I'm not a fan of getting involved in someone else's personal life but this situation really sucks. How would any of you feel if a good friend of yours was having an affair with someone married with kids?

I can only hope the married man's wife doesn't find out.

I'd feel very disappointed in my friend and would probably try to facilitate a discussion that allows her to look at her own moral character. I'd also likely lose some respect for her and if that happens then the friendship will likely not be as strong anymore, knowing this is something that I don't want too connected to my own life.

Also, even though I wouldn't tell, I'd hope the married man's wife finds out because I'm a major advocate of the truth. Red pill all the way.

The sad part of this is their 2 children would be affected the most. If it's easier to walk away if there aren't any children involved but if there are, they will wonder why aren't mommy and daddy together or maybe even asked what happened. Hence, a broken home is what's going to end up happening and my friend doesn't realize this.

I think she knows but she doesn't care. I'm not sure of the specifics of this relationship, but does the married man have any intentions of divorcing his wife to be with her and does the wife have any intentions of leaving? All that plays a role. I think husband and wife can duke it out in private without getting the kids involved. But right now, your friend is just being selfish. :/

I would love all respect for any friend of mine that did that. I would hope the wife finds out, she should know. When this woman and man did this they knew that this could be the end of that marriage. I would never stay with a man that had an affair while with me.

She'll need a friend. Stick by her. Don't judge her. But it's OK for a friend to tell another friend why their lives are continually imploding!

I would mind my own business, and would make it clear to my friend that I don't want to hear about it.

It would be the end of the friendship for me, I have no use for liars, thieves or cheaters in my life. It is her choice obviously however, it is my choice to not deal with her on any level.
