let face it, we all have best friends who sometimes go the wrong way, in this case infidelity. Here a scenario, my best friend started to an affair just a couple of months ago. The problem is his wife is my cousin. They only been married for 2 yrs. Now I am in dilemma when the wife started complaining about her husband behaviour, always coming home late, always in a bad mood and always on his cell phone even at home. She started to ask me about him since I am always meeting him at work. I knew what is going on but my best friend made me promise him not to tell which I reluctantly agree. Now, do you think I should butt in or butt out?

It's very hard to meddle in problems like this. The woman has the right to know especially it's your cousin and it hurts knowing that she is being cheated. Talking to the man is necessary. In the first place you've been an accomplice to his doing eh. You keep mum and even promised to keep silent. You should have reminded him that he is in the wrong way, presented him the consequences it may bring, who are the people affected. What are the causes why he has done this. You don't want to have broken family either. Act as a counselor to him. You stood in the middle, you know what is happening. Act now before it get worst, before guilt strike you. That's my opinion. I'm not telling you to do it. Use your instincts.
