Speaking from a similar experience, I told my best friend who’s like my big brother I could not hold his secret due to it was affecting our friendship and my relationship with his wife and children. My friend was having an affair with a co-worker and it lasted six months. In those six months, our friendship became strained and his wife became very suspicious of his actions and was under the impression that I knew more than what I was letting on.

I can’t tell you how bad I felt because I could not tell her the truth. My reasons for not telling the truth, was because they have three children and I did not want to be the one to break up the family. It was not my call; I was not the one cheating. So, I told my best friend either he gets his act together or he was no longer going to be apart of my life or my children lives. I didn’t want to pressure him but I felt I had no choice in the matter because I really do respect and care for his wife and children. His wife is the best thing that could have ever happened to him. Why did he need to look elsewhere? I’ll never know. Needless to say, he listened to what I had to say and he stopped the affair and sought out private therapy.

My suggestion is to be patient and be truthful and honest with your friend. If you’re uncomfortable tell your friend that you can’t be apart of their disaster waiting to happen. If your friend truly cherishes your friendship they will listen to you and if they don’t listen to you at least you can say that you stuck to your morals and values and did what was best for your well being!
