When a parent has an affair that leads to divorce, it's only natural for the kids caught in the crossfire to want some answers. Affairs take many shapes and happen for a range of reasons, and knowing the scope of what ended your parent's marriage can give an ounce of closure to a painful situation.
Still, because of all the parties involved, getting a clear picture of what went down can be a tricky order to fill. Oftentimes the cheating parent doesn't want their mess aired out further, and the hurt party would rather not go there, so a bit of sleuthing may be in order.
AITA for talking to my dad's affair partner, to understand what happened to my family? Nobody else would tell me.
OP kicked off the post by sharing that the last few years have been hell following her dad's affair.
