20-year-old seeing a 50-year-old married man in secret exposed to the man’s wife by her best friend

Two friends, a 20-year-old woman and the other a 50-something married man, are engaging in an inappropriate relationship, unbeknownst to the man's wife. A friend of the young woman has decided to take things into her own hands and tip off the wife, as she details in her Reddit post.

*This is a work of non-fiction sourced from social media discussion boards and verified experts/specialists.*

The author begins by explaining that she recently learned that her best friend is currently having an affair with a married man, which the author absolutely doesn’t support:

“We had been friends for about 5 years or so. I considered her my sister because we were just that close. We tell each other everything. And she told me how she was hooking up with a married man (mind you he was 50-something with kids and grandkids). I told her to end it because she was being stupid. She knows that I don’t condone cheating. I try to keep an open mind but some things, like cheating, I do not tolerate.”

According to Psych Central, cheating on a partner is a highly immoral act that can have a long-lasting impact on the lives of those involved. It is not something to be glamorized or glorified, and those who do engage in such a relationship should be held accountable for their actions. It is imperative that those who are aware of such a situation make it known to the partner who is being wronged, in order to provide them with the closure they deserve, as indicated by the Insider.

The author was appalled, even more so when the best friend made it clear that she had no plans to stop having the affair. She elaborates:

“She said she is gonna continue hooking up with him because it makes her feel good about herself. Her reasoning was that this married man would rather [be with] her than this wife and that made her feel good about herself. I need y’all to know this- hooking up with a married person is not a brag, it just means you are pathetic. I asked her ‘what about his wife’ and she said she doesn’t care about his wife.”

This further enraged the friend, who then proceeded to take screenshots of all her friend’s text conversations, videos, and photos as well as tracking down the man's social media accounts. Using this information, the friend reached out to the man's wife and sent her a direct message with all the proof, hoping to let her know what her husband had done. The author concludes:

“He posted pics of his wife, kids, and grandkids. From there I found his wife on social media, followed her, and sent her a dm with all the proof. Then I sent my friend a text saying , paraphrasing here, that she is ‘the scum of the earth and I don’t want anything to do with her’. After that, I blocked her on everything. I sent the wife the dm about an hour ago and she hasn’t responded yet.”

What do you think?

Did the author do the right thing by tipping off the married woman that her husband was having an affair with a 20-year-old woman, as the wife deserves to know?

Or should the author have just minded her own business, as this has absolutely nothing to do with the author and she needs to learn to keep her thoughts to herself?
