Ok so long story short ish. My dad left my mum after an affair 20 yrs ago it totally tore our family apart and as a child I remember mums sadness dispite her efforts to hide it. So my and sis grew up and moved out and mum met and has lived with since a nice man 8 yrs her junior. It has become apparent that said nice man has been messaging a woman on fb who is half his age. These messages although I don't know exact content are flirty and sexual. Mum told me this after I harassed her to tell me what was wrong. Mum is going to confront" nice"man tonight I am livid. I have told her to do whatever she would advise me to do knowing what that would be. How can I support her through hmm

Your poor mum. How horrible. But....she is very fortunate to have you. I would say just be there for her when she needs you and give her space when she needs time on her own. Listen when she needs to talk. She might not want advice just now but someone to vent at.
I wish you both well. X

I'm so sorry.

But...this time she has two fantastic women standing right by her side to help her through it. Women she raised to be brilliant, supportive, wise daughters, if your post is anything to go by.

It's shit. But she WILL be ok and life will go on. Good luck x
