You Suspect Your Sister In Law Is Having An Affair...

Your brother and sister in law have been married for four years and they have a two year old child. Your brother is often on the road for work and he's suspicious that his wife may be having an affair with another man.

You've just confirmed this is true because you caught your sister in law in a lie about a secret rendezvous she had last week. She begs you not to tell your brother and claims that it only happened because he is away all of the time and she was feeling especially sad and lonely.

Even celeb couples can not withstand distance sometimes. Kate Hudson and hubby rocker Chris Robinson seem to have separated during his most recent tour with his band. She seems so be finding solace (and sun) with co-star Owen Wilson here in Hawaii. Would you tell your brother about the affair or not?

I clicked that I would tell because in my mind I was thinking of one sister-in-law in particular (I have 6 in total) who has been jerking my brother around for many years now and the protective sister side of me wishes she would do something drastic enough for him to throw in the towel and get on with his life without her. I know that is mean, but if a lot of you knew the whole picture you'd probably think the same.

My first thought is that I would tell...especially since my SIL is B****Y, but I think I would wait and see if she did. I doubt my brother would do anything about it anyway.

He is already suscpcious bitch is caught. She shouldnt be so stupid. Distance is no excuse for anyone to cheat i dont care who you are. I wouldnt personally tell him bc its not my brother its my bil so I would tell my husband bc thats what is appropreate and he could handle it better. If he wanted to talk to me that would b fine but Id intially let his brother do the talking. I HATE MY BIL and even I would tell him lol

I think everyone's first response would be to tell but even when they are your blood it is not your place. It is between your brother and SIL. If he suspects trust me deep down he knows that she is cheating and just isn't at the point that he can accept it. The truth always comes out and at that point they can decide together how they would like to live.

I think that I would definitley tell him. I would expect he would do the same for me! Plus, I know it would/might possibly ruin relationhips, but she should have thought about that before she did it.

If my brother were married and I knew something like this, I would give her the chance to tell him. If she didn't I would tell him. I wouldn't want my family to be upset over it if they found out that I knew about it and didn't tell him.

;) AYE!!! You tattling wench! LOL! Wow, I would want to tell....but with my luck, the person I am telling would end up getting mad at me and not believe me. It is a sticky situation.

Can you tell I am probably the worst Sister in Law to have!! LOL
ohsuri ohsuri 10 years
I would tell him. First I would follow her and get proof..make sure you are 100% sure!! My blood comes first,no way would I let someone treat my brother like that!!
jennifer76 jennifer76 10 years
I would absolutely tell him. This is not a one time thing if her reasoning is that he's away all the time. He's still going to be away all the time. He has the right to know.

I once tried to tell a friend of mine that his girlfriend was cheating on him, and he flat out didn't believe me. Even though I'd been friends with him for years, he sided with her. So I'd probably be hesitant to say something again.

I'd hate to be in her shoes. But I would most likely encourage her to come clean for the sake of her marriage and kids. Not to mention the guilt she's live with if she didn't say anything. Yours Truly, DesignRchic
