OP here. There have been a few questions, so I will take the time to answer them. First off, my siblings are 9 and 11 (I am a whopping 10 years older than them. Yay me.), so at this age I would like for them to keep being happy and innocent on Christmas and not associate it with the day their family was torn apart. In the case of my mom, she wasn't caught, but the reason I was the one who had to hide everything was because she was being heavily medicated after having a surgery and almost let it slip the night before. My dad has cheated on my mother multiple times and has not treated her very well, so I can understand why she would cheat and I don't pity him. I guess I've dealt with my mom crying over him for so long that I've seen this coming and it is karma. No matter what happens from here, I will not allow my siblings to be sad and have their family torn from them on Christmas because the adults don't know how to adult.

Good for you for putting your family first, but that isn't your job to essentially be the parent of your own parent like that. It takes a lot of courage and maturity to do that, A+ for the effort ?

Sorry that your in this situation, and remember that this will not last. Good will come of this, like the sun shining behind a cloud, waiting to peek through.

This one definitely needs a follow-up. Was mom's cover blown? Is blackmail on the table? Is the rapture coming? So many questions.

They have a right to know, but they don't need to find out on Christmas, especially if there are children. They'll always remember Christmas as the day their family fell apart. They don't need a federal holiday reminding them of their heartbreak every year.

He's not doing it for her, he's doing it for his siblings, which I think is a good thing if it's very temporary. The right thing to do once the holidays are over would be to tell his dad.
