I found out that my dad is cheating on my mom by looking at his texts, what should I do? Do I tell my mom?
My dad is working in the US, and we're in the process of moving to be with him from the UK, but it's taking a while.
I was using his phone this new year when I looked at his texts and found out that he's been sending these texts to an unnamed women. The texts are dated while we are here visiting. It's heartbreaking to think that while we're here on holiday he just can't wait for us to go.
The first text in the history implies that its not a new thing and they were going to stop, but one text implies he met her while we were visiting, and planning to meet one we go.
It's come as a huge shock to me, because although my parents argue sometimes, and I argue with them, I didn't think he would ever do anything like this.
I'm just 18 and have a 16 year old brother, so he and my mom are the ones moving out here to live with my dad permanently, while I go travelling.
I just never thought this would happen to my family. They've been married 20 years.
My mom has given no indication of knowing. And my dad's phone has recently gained a passcode to enter it that wasn't there before the trip, so I think he is hiding it.
I took photos of the texts. Should I tell my mom?
