My issue involves the bylines of a particular MAN LAW. Last weekend I was returning my best buddy’s weed-eater to the shed in the back of his house. All was well until I walked past his bedroom window and saw his wife with another guy – she saw me. What made it worse was that I had to have dinner with them that same night. It was the worst night ever. If I tell my buddy it would crush him, if I don’t it will crush me. What should I do?

Thank you for writing! When it comes to Man Law we often find ourselves asking, “Am I my brother’s keeper?”
The answer usually involves holding our tongues while our “brothers” commit to sinful acts of aggression and moral stupidity. The show Cheaters has lasted over twelve seasons: for these very reasons!
The reality of your friend’s situation is that more than likely he knows that his wife is cheating: most people know when their lovers are cheating. Some of the usual behavior changes include: an increase in texting, avoidance of sex, and overt public bitchiness. Let’s not forget the physical difference in her love below.
The worst thing you can do is snitch and tell your friend. Why? Because his wife will simply deny it. Thus, making you the bad guy who tried to break their happy home! Men generally believe their woman in cases like this. She may go as far as painting a vivid picture of how jealous you are of what they have! Some would even say LONELY!
It is best that you let him find out that his wife is cheating like everyone else does on an episode of Maury or on Facebook! Let me know how this turns out!
