My Mom Is Cheating on Dad; What to Do?

18 June, 2022
Q Assalamualykum, at the time of me writing this I do not have much time so I will try to summarize as simply as possible. My mother and father after we have moved to America have started to drift away from each other. They fight frequently and have stopped to talk to each other overall. While all this was going on my mom had been talking to a man from her work and when I tried to confront her about it she guilt tripped me on how terrible her and our life is. Our life was not terrible at all she always blamed it on my father who has always been a honest and hardworking man who i respect very much. I dont know what to do I just feel like I am drifting farther away from my faith and have been feeling suicidal and I would really appreciate any advice on what to do because I am lost.

Answer

When parents go through difficult times in their marriage, they often do not realize the impact on their kids.

As a parent, being more mindful of your influence on your children will generate a change in your behavior with your spouse.

You, as a kid, will not be able to grasp all the details of their relationship, and the nature of their conflict. As a result, it is best not to get involved in their argument.
