We all know little kids can be brutally honest. Here's an example of a kid's innocent honesty torpedoing their parents' marriage, but saving their dad from a lifetime of infidelity.
A Reddit user posted on the TIFU (today I f***ed up) subreddit about how she learned that a conversation with her dad was the catalyst for her parents' divorce.
The user's mom was a serial cheater who was messing around with other people while dad was deployed with the military — and the dad found out because of an innocent conversation in the car one day when he got home from serving.
She found out about the conversation when talking to her mom:
Me: "So I was talking to mom about your divorce and she brought up a ride in the car with you that initiated the divorce"
Mom wouldn't tell her the full story (talk about a toxic person...) so she went to her dad — who raised her after the mom left — to learn the rest of the deets.
