i'd be more likely to set up a scenario that would make it possible for my friend to figure it out.. Or take cell phone photos if i caught them of something with the cheaters by accident in the photo

The only exception would be if he was a player too. Then they can have themselves.

It's best to stay out of those situations unless you can call the Cheaters tv show.

Not without proof.
But I might leave an anonymous note tipping her off about what to suspect or to inspect.

Depends on several things: HOW CERTAIN you are, how close you are to the couple and how you found out!

It would depend on whether I think he'd want me to do so.

I've gotten in the center of that before with a close friend and it was hell and she turned on me awhile, she was so blind to her spouse, but we came together again to rebuild our friendship from the ground up after he did it more times to her and she got courage to leave him. I won't do that again unless it's something that is very dangerous where she or her children could be in harm's way, then yeah, you bet I would!

Your friend probably already suspects something is going on. Stay out of it or you may lose your friend in the process.

My oldest daughter had an affair. I informed my son in law for a myriad of reasons. Call me what you will, this was NOT an easy decision, but it was a necessary one. She was engaged in destructive behavior (common for bi polar people) and needed professional help.

They deserve to know, plus I could prevent him/her from getting a STD! (Even with protection it can happen)

If it were a good friend I would tip them off. Personally, I would want to know.

If I was sure of it. That hug could be a brother or cousin or an old friend. If it was just a friendly acquaintance I would stay out of it.

I warned a friend once that his wife made a pass at me. He was not happy and wouldn't talk to me for a while. They got a divorce a year later when he found out she was being passed around by her boss and she liked it...turns out I was right.

But I lost a good friend for life...better to have let it go.

It would depend on the situation. Most likely, I would drop hints and try to get them to figure it out on their own.

As soon as its is clear they are comfortable in lying to you its over. If only I knew then what I know now.......a story as old as time itself.

often than not, they shoot the messenger but in the long run you'd be happy you did whether or not the outcome goes in your favor because you know you've done the right thing. It caused a huge rift between my sister & I but we finally got back to a good place.

But ONLY if they were really a friend, not just an acquaintance ... and only if I were *absolutely* certain. In either event, I may very well lose a dear friend.
