Awkward Moment

My cousin’s husband just posted a photo of himself with his girlfriend. I guess he forgot that he is married with three kids under 10.

Now we get to play the game of whether we act like we don’t know or not.

Is he that dumb or trying to be cruel to his wife and children?

That's horrible! Your poor cousin and their children. Where did post it, on Facebook?

I'd be tempted to comment on the photo with something like, "I'm confused...

I had a relative do that one time. Most of the comments were along the lines of “What is the matter with you!?!”

Yikes! Are they at least separated?! Still awkward and hurtful, no doubt.

My cousin's husband did the same thing when they were separated. Actually, the girlfriend is the one who posted the pics and tagged their son (grown) in it! So of course my cousin and all of us saw it. The hurtful part is that he left my cousin due to having an affair with that girl. Nothing like rubbing salt in the wound.

He made the picture his FB profile pic, and he tagged her as the person he’s in a relationship with. I lurked around my cousin’s page. She’s listed herself as separated, and gone back her maiden name. They were still together as late as last week.

Might be worth a call to your cousin to be sure she's OK. Very sad.

That's sad. Bad enough to have an affair (which I hate to say it, but it sounds like he is having one), but to immediately post that on FB?!?!? Not cool.

{{{hugs}}} to your cousin.

Sure sounds to me as though he's not only having an affair but is deliberately trying to hurt his wife and doesn't care whether he hurts his children. It's a truly rotten thing to do. They're probably all better off without him in the long run.

She’s the baby of the seven (all girl) first cousins, so he may have to tangle with the other six of us before this is over. We have never been super close, but we will rally when we need to do it. They’re both in their 20’s, and they’ve been married quite a few years. The kids are like kindergarten to third grade, so they’re understandably upset that their daddy has left. He should definitely know better.
