If you knew that a friend's significant other was cheating on him or her, would you tell your friend the truth or keep it to yourself?
This happened to me in grad school... People saw a good friend's wife kissing another guy. In addition, the wife had confided in me that she was corresponding excessively with an ex-boyfriend and that she wasn't sure where she wanted it to go blah blah blah.

EVERYONE was talking about and yet no one would tell the friend.

So one night, after a reading at the beach, we were walking back to our cars, and I decided i had to say something.


Our friendship never recovered, and to this day, I regret ever saying a word. (Though I am happy to say they're still married and seemed to have figured stuff out from what I've heard.)

It is just not worth it to get involved in your friends' love lives. They have to figure things out for themselves. They'll just end up resenting you if you try to insert your opinion.
