I'm posting... on sort of behalf of my best friend
Her mother had an affair on her dad, her affair partner was also married.
Essentially they both divorced their respective partners and have now moved in together, saving for a house etc.
My friend is out of home with her boyfriend so it's not as if she has to live with them etc. But because she lost her dad and her brother from the split (they moved overseas) she is very angry and hurt.
She doesn't want to meet her mother's affair partner, which her mother is starting to head down that path. She also thinks that considering her brother no longer even speaks to her mother and the relationship between her mother and her affair partner has still continued that if she makes it too obvious she doesn't want to meet him that her mother will not react with sensitivity.
Btw my friend heard that moved in together through the grapvine and had waited for months for her mother to tell her. Furthermore she was told last week after going shopping with her and 2 minutes before they arrived at the cousin's house.
I'm not sure what to say when she asks for advice. I did not come from a loving family so I feel my thoughts on how to handle it would be very different from normal people's
Do you have any advice?
