What do you do when you think your good friend’s spouse is cheating?

What do you do when you think your good friend’s spouse is cheating?

Clinical Psychologist Joti Samra addressed this issue with one of her readers after receiving a letter about the exact same topic. Samra replied, “They are ultimately the only people who can come to a resolution about how their relationship should unfold. As a result, there is little to no value in sharing your opinions.”

In other words, keep your suspicions to yourself. Without solid evidence, you may be causing more harm than good.

Huffington Post took to Facebook and Twitter and asked readers their thoughts on the subject. Here are some responses:

  1. “Not if you just THINK they are. Now if you KNOW they are, I think you should go to the spouse that is cheating and let them know you are going to give them the chance to ‘fess up but if they don’t, then you will,’” – Randi D.

  2. “I was cheated on and have a huge issue with people not saying anything if they know. Several of my ‘friends’ knew (and even allowed their place to be used for my ex and his girlfriend). I feel that at the very least they should have not condoned it. They should have told him to come clean.” – Tara H.

  3. “Yes, if you want to ruin two lives.” – @MainmacoSeth

  4. “I would want someone to tell me, so yes, I would. And would be very hurt by someone keeping it from me.” – @TheWonderWords

  5. “Nope! I did that once. No hearsay or passing of gossip; I had walked in and caught them being intimate on the floor! I told my friend and she attacked me and never spoke to me again. Lesson learned!” – Lorraine S.

  6. “Yes, without a doubt! I was the victim of a cheating spouse and everyone knew before me! Unless you have personally experienced this you can never comprehend the pain and the devastation.” – Bob P.

  7. “Don’t tell. If they reconcile you’ll be enemy no.1!” – @kalebogile

  8. “Yes, but you need solid proof. And you need to be prepared to lose that friend for a little bit.” – @EWrigglesworth

  9. “NO NO NO. If they ask, don’t lie, but don’t volunteer.” – @southerner09

  10. “I would stay out of it or if you truly care about your friend, I would hire a private investigator and send proof without giving away your identity.” – Laura L.

  11. “No, no good can come of it.” – Barbara H.

No matter your opinion, the safest, most effective way to catch a cheater in the act is utilizing professional investigators to conduct surveillance efforts.
