The young man was shocked to discover that his mother was dating another man behind his father's back. He couldn't believe his eyes when he read their intimate conversation. 

He shared a message from his mother's conversation with the man.

Following his discovery, he searched the man's name on the internet and found that he lived in another state with his wife and children. The young boy felt sad for his father and the man's wife.

He knew that his father loved his mother immensely because he had worked hard to give them the best life. The boy wanted to tell his father everything because he did not want him to put his energy into a dying relationship.

However, he first wanted to confront his mother. He wanted to ask her why she was cheating on his father. Moreover, he wanted to inform the lover's wife that her husband was cheating on her. 

Going through the messages made him feel that the man was good at manipulating his family because his wife thought their marriage was going well.

Since he had his mother's past phone location, he could easily prove that she was with the other man multiple times. However, he wasn't sure if it was a good idea to contact the other woman. 

He wrote a detailed Reddit post and asked other Redditors if he should contact the wife of the man his mother was cheating on his father with. Before concluding his post, he shared a message from his mother's conversation with the man:

“Baby, being married to you... that’s the dream.”

"Just confirm your parents are not in an "open" relationship, and your mom is truly lying to your dad," Redditor HKatzOnline suggested.

The Redditor also advised OP (Original Poster) to inform the man's wife if his parents are not in an open relationship and the man knows that his mother is married. 

OP replied that he was sure his parents were not in an open relationship. He also assured that his father was clueless about his mother's affair.

Meanwhile, Redditor 2715murder said that OP shouldn't tell his mother that he knew about her affair. "I feel like warning the man and your mom that you know just gives them the opportunity to minimize, make up excuses, etc.," the Redditor explained

The boy replied that he had screenshots of their conversation as evidence, so denying their affair wouldn't work. He said he was "giving his mother a chance to confess" by confronting her first.

Most Redditors assured OP it was OK to contact the other woman and inform her about her husband's affair. Some users said he would be at fault if he didn't talk to her.

Questions to Ponder:

Do you think the boy should talk to his mother first?

Some Redditors felt the boy's mother would prepare excuses if he confronted her before talking to his father. However, he wanted to give his mother a chance to confess everything to him herself. Do you think he should talk to her first?

Do you think the boy should reach out to the lover's wife and tell her what he discovered?

OP has intentions of informing his mother's lover's wife about their affair after confronting his mother. Do you think this is a good idea?
