"I caught my dad cheating on my mom when I was a kid.
To make a long story short: when smartphones came around, my dad would have the usual dad problems with new technology.
He was always really careless too, he’d be watching porn with his back to the door when he thought I wasn’t home. I’d walk in to tell him something or to watch TV (this often happened in the living room), pretend I didn’t see anything and walk out. I just figured, yeah it’s weird and uncomfortable but it’s just porn.
Anywho, my dad wanted me to install an app that did something and he couldn’t figure it out by himself. I accidentally opened the text message app and found hundreds and hundreds of conversations with a woman. Nude pictures, videos, the works.
I didn’t know what to do, my 14-year-old mind thought “well this is nothing physical so maybe it’s not worth mentioning”. I just wanted my mom’s feelings to not be hurt. It took about a week of avoiding both of them until she asked me what was wrong, that’s when I told her.
She smiled sadly and told me not to worry about it, that she wasn’t dumb, she knew but he didn’t know she knew. She told me that despite everything, she silently trusted him to always use protection." -missdiamandis
