Today, I accidentally walked in on my mom cheating on my step-dad with my real dad. FML
HeyTherexxx tells us more :
Unfortunately, seeing them was inevitable. I'm trying not to get involved, but needless to say, it's difficult. Apparently, my mother is going to tell my step-dad, but she's a liar sometimes. One step at a time, I suppose.

Could've been worse! It could've been your sister instead of your mom. Just sayin'.

Guys does it really matter whether or not they state what the twist is?
It's simply a plot twist. Saying plot twist doesn't come with rules and regulations as to how you say it and what it is followed by.
Her reasoning is clearly implied in the FML itself. Use logic.


@36, if I had said, "omg, your mom is sleeping with the man she divorced, rather than the man she's married to! plot twist!" i would just be completely restating the entire fml. you dont have to say what the plot twist is when it is so BLATANTLY spelled out by OP.


107 But that's not the only scenario that it could be therefore stating what the "plot twist" is would be correct. There's so many different scenarios other than assuming only what you said.

Wow that really sucks OP. But you should tell your stepdad. Your mom isn't with your real dad for a reason and if there are problems in your mom and stepdads relationship they need to deal with it like adults and not invoke the kids and get the hopes up by thinking that their parents are gonna get back together. And if your on speaking terms with your real dad tell him that sleeping with your mom is a big no.

Make your mom confess it to your stepdad and try to get involved as little as possible. Your parents messed up and you shouldn’t get blamed for anything. When you keep it a secret you could end up getting in trouble when it finally comes out.

you're right, they should not involve the kids in their mess.

OP has NO obligation to tell anyone anything. She can tell her mom or her Dad (since she caught them) how awkward it is for her , but that's all OP needs to say. OP is in an awkward situation but the best thing for OP to do is to not get involved further and let her parents sort it out on their own terms.

I refuse to become involved excessively.
I'm not a marriage counselor, so this is beyond me. My mom told my step-dad by herself. I don't know anything else on the matter though.

As someone with divorced parents, let me just say that if my biological parents got back together, I'd be unbelievably happy. Both of my step-parents are super duper shit-tastic. I think how you'd react depends on how you feel about the divorce.

I also have divorced parents and if they got back together I would probably start screaming. They were miserable for YEARS I only wish that they had gotten a divorce sooner. It all depends on the situation, seeing my mom happier and actually having a life though...It is so nice to see.

120 - Thats why I specified "almost". I'm not speaking for everyone, but I know I was one of those kids who hoped their parents would get back together.

The thing is though, no one is agreeing with you. Some do but not almost all of them, most children seeing their parents fight and destroy themselves makes them relieved that the fighting is almost over. Running back and forth between comforting my sobbing little sister and screaming at my dad to just stop hitting my mother was one of the worst moments in my entire life. While that is more extreme then a lot of people experience the yelling alone is heart wrenching and traumatic for many.
