I've been dating my boyfriend for about a year now. He is wonderful, but his family is a different story. His mother had an affair with a married man (with a family) and has a child from it now. Based on other information I have about the family, I am under the strong impression that the father's family and wife do not know about this.
This seriously bothers me, because if I were the wife of the cheater, I would want to know about my cheating husband and the child. I have never met the dad or his family, but I feel horrible for the wife and children. In fact, I almost feel guilty that I even know about it and they don't; it makes me feel as though I am obligated to do something about it. The child is a toddler and is unaware of the situation as far as I can tell (what toddler would understand that anyway?)
Am I wrong for wanting to potentially ruin a family and marriage by exposing the truth? Or should I just keep my head down and ignore it?
