Mami confessions: My boyfriend's cheating on me with my daughter
The post from one of the moms in our forum this week broke my heart. It turns out the woman wrote to us telling us she needs help because she suspects her boyfriend is cheating on her with her own daughter. As she tells us, her boyfriend is 15 years her junior and is 33 years old. Her daughter, 23, separated from her husband and returned to live in the house with her. But on more than one occasion, she's felt something strange when they're around. She's found her daughter wrapped in a towel saying she had to take a shower in more than one occasion while her boyfriend just sits there watching TV.
The question she has is whether she's imagining things, and if there is something going on, she wants to know what she should do.
This is what she said happened when she came home unexpectedly recently:
I knocked and nobody opened. I knocked on the window and my boyfriend finally opened the door. He said he was in the bathroom and did not hear me knock. It looked as if he had ran, as he was all red and sweaty. My daughter was wearing a towel saying she was going to take a shower with the towel. I don't know what to think.
I agree with what many of the other members tell this woman. In short, if she suspects there's something going, she's probably right and she should confront them. I feel terrible for this poor woman, not so much because of what her boyfriend's apparently doing, but because of her daughter's behavior. In all honesty, I don't know if I could forgive such a betrayal.
What would you advise this woman?
