How People Would React To Catching Their Best Friend Sleeping With Their Significant Other

Affairs and infidelity are sadly a more common part of life than we care to admit.

People cheat. it seems to be part of the human condition.

Are we meant to be monogamous?

That's a story for a different article.

I say though, if you're going to cheat... have some basic human decency.

Don't cheat with people you all know.

And how are BFFs not automatically off limits?


Redditor Gifwii wanted to hear all the ways we'd all react when betrayed by the ones we love.

So they asked:

"If you caught your best friend having sex with your wife, what would you do?"

How can people betray one another like that?

"Be weirded out because they are brother and sister."

"Haha... I'm also dating my best friend’s sister."

Ok Dateline...

"I'm more concerned on how he found her body."

Smiddy3663

"If he's really your best friend, he helped bury it."

Hey Bestie

"I don't think he would. I had him neutered as a puppy."

a5redwing

"This reply was made extremely funny (or concerning) by the fact that I took it as someone neutering an actual person when they became friends."

Never Cry Wolf...

"Take his car keys and drive to his place. It's all yours now buddy."

"Hol' up, remember to make it official. You have to p*ss a border around your new acquisition like in Never Cry Wolf, and if any relatives of the former owner are present you need to mark the ones you can't mate with, and you know, mate with the others."

SuboptimalButHopeful

"With that logic, I guess his house and and family are mine now? That's okay with me, his wife is pleasant to be around."

Betrayal...

"That happened to me 30 years ago and I haven’t been able to fall in love since."

TalboGold

"I'd be more unwilling to make best friends than rather than unable to develop a crush."

The rudeness of it all.

"Ask if she wants help..."

"Since they're the same person."

Revenge

"Have sex with his wife. It’s only fair."

ami2weird4u

"My ex fiancée had an affair with a married man. Talked to his wife, she and I made a sex video and sent it to them."

Solid-Acanthisitta86

"I'm not a vengeful nor petty person but this kind of turned me on."

Evidence

"Record it for evidence then talk to a divorce lawyer on how to get a divorce without losing anything."

"Thank them both and move on with my life."

Wraisted

"In most states, the fault isn't a thing that matters beyond the reason. It just may waive the cooling off period... at fault divorces mattering in regards to separation of property ended in the 70's for the vast majority of the country."

"Apparently they discovered that people lie, and it is rarely a clear cut 'this person is the only one guilty.'"

Dredly

GO!

"I'd have to leave, or else I'd commit murder. I would then leave forever, I think I would just leave everything behind and become a nomad at that point and never look back."

AlavarTheBlue

"Also my first thought. Never a more compelling moment to finally hit the road and live every day like it's my last."

yes_yup_uh_huh

"Maybe tomorrow I'll wanna settle down..."

Lost to Me

"Well, it is an extreme level of cheating. One thing is to find your wife in bed with a lover but whole other to find her with your best friend. It is multi-level betrayal and that would leave a huge impact on my future life. Not that I would be sorry for losing that person but because it would make me hard to trust anyone after that. Hope that never happens to me or anyone I know."

LOL

"Exclaim, 'Bob! What the hell? I HAVE to sleep with her, but you??!!'"

This is more common than you think. Watch Dateline.

While starting a family and having children is a goal that many people have, some do not realize that it's not easy, fun, and loving one-hundred percent of the time. Rather, it's expensive, exhausting, and hard, though it might be worth it in the end.

With this in mind, people shared what they felt were the hardest hurdles of their parenting.

Positive emotions are high among people in the blossoming phase of relationships.

Everything seems more romanticized for people in love due to the amorous joy in their hearts–which also influences their desire to frequently get it on under the sheets–or any other daring location in the heat of the moment.

But for those who've declared "'til death do us part," devoted couples may find that they are not always on the same wavelength sexually compared to when they first met.

There are a number of things people partake in spite of the known possible ramifications they have on their health and safety.

Up to and including smoking, bungee-jumping, recreational drug use, or simply bike riding without a helmet.

Indeed, even though they know that doing any or all of these things could possibly lead to their death, they do it anyway.

Sadly, even though many people go out of their way to avoid doing these things for that very reason, that still doesn't mean they keep themselves completely out of danger.

Sadly, there are a surprisingly large number of things that lead to an even more surprising number of deaths each year.

Frighteningly, these are things that the majority of the world's population does on an almost daily basis.

When Americans visit a foreign country, they tend to notice immediate cultural differences from the minute they step off the plane.

Unique bathroom designs, how you might have to be more specific when ordering coffee in Australia, how many businesses in Spain tend to shut down for a few hours to take a siesta.

Needless to say, this goes both ways, as when people from all over the world visit the United States, they tend to be surprised and amazed by a number of things.

Ranging from the amusing, such as portion sizes and ineffective tea brewing (at least for the Brits) to the truly baffling (HEALTHCARE).
