My daughter in law is having an affair ??

by Jennifer
(Sacramento.)

Both she and my son are 45 and have been together for just over 20 years. I received an e-mail from someone who has sent me evidence that she has been cheating on him with his BFF. I have had this information and I talked with her about it and She convinced me and his sister to not say anything . Most of the time it happens it when he's out of town town or at work. I know that she cheated on him last night.

I have NO idea how to handle this. Hey Parents out there should I say anything to my son or just let it work itself out and he will figure it out soon enough?

Dear Jennifer. So far, you have done your job as a parent. You have brought this to your daughter-in-law's attention and she needs to take it from there. If you inform your son about this, it will just put you in the middle of a difficult situation. Your son will find out about this in time, and decide how he wants to handle it.

If they tell you they are struggling in their marriage, you can suggest they see a marriage counselor, and this will all come out.

"You gave us counseling without making either one of us feel that you were taking sides.
You always maintained your impartiality with us. You encouraged Rita to be more assertive in stating what she wanted to get from your counseling sessions, as well as what she wanted to get from the relationship.
You taught both of us better communication between ourselves, which lead to an emotional comfort level between us that didn't exist before.
You took control of the direction of the session if things were not moving along.
Thanks so much
for helping us."
