If you saw a friends’ significant other having an inappropriate relationship with someone else would you tell them? Would you confront the significant other? What would you do about it? Vince Vaughn‘s most recent film entitled “The Dilemma” posed these same questions. Vaughn’s character trying to find right timing to tell his friend that his wife was having an affair.
I ask this because I found myself in a similar situation. Someone I was good friends with had visitors at their home and I felt that one of the ladies was acting inappropriately by flirting with her husband. Every time my friends’ attention was preoccupied she would say and do things that a person shouldn’t do with another persons mate. Well I told her that I felt what I saw was wrong. She confronted the woman and it was decided among them that it wasn’t like that and that I was wrong for saying anything. Ultimately, she stopped speaking to me, is still friends with the other lady. So, I say keep your mouth shut and mind your own business. Even with the best intentions at heart it will not be appreciated that way. When you get into people’s relationships it is a sticky subject and you’ll probably walk away looking like the bad guy. I’m just saying!
