Should you tell on a cheating friend?

25 April 2016, 23:57 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - What do you do if you find out that someone’s partner or spouse is cheating? Obviously an adult will know why we even have to ask because grownups just don’t go shooting their mouth aimlessly.

First of all, are you sure? Some people create problems in other people’s relationships based on assumptions. At times you see someone having lunch and you are quick to run to their spouse to tell them that they saw them with someone of the opposite sex. What they told their spouse is that they were having a business meeting. Most people do not follow up to ask a question like, ‘With a man or with a woman? ’ But now that you have put that notion in their head, it starts becoming fishy. That is when you know you should mind your own business. Don’t jump to assumptions over what is going on in someone’s house. If they say they are fine, leave it at that. It is not your job to disapprove it.

When it is someone’s wife or husband that is when you know you really have to think because you do not want to be the reason a whole family is torn apart. You also have to think of their kids because you are not going to think of the couple only. How will it affect them and whether the spouse you have to tell is a rational person? The last bit is really important because they are going to react. How they react is a whole other issue.

This is how you know you do not want to be in people’s business. At times the spouse even knows they just choose to act like they do not know. So when you go tattling, they give you a look like, ‘You did not have anything better to do with your time?’

If it is not people you personally know, stay out of it. People have funny arrangements in their households and you do not want to put your foot in your mouth.

If it is someone close to you then you really do have something to think about as to whether you want to be the one to tell them such a thing because you really know them. You have to think about how it will affect them. Sometimes it is just best when you have a talk with someone before you go tell on them; because some people are irrational and do irrational things when they find out something that might be devastating to them. You do not want to be the reason someone burns down their house as well as themselves in it.
