Would you cover for your friend if they were cheating? This woman’s boyfriend certainly tried to cover for his cheating friend…that is, until she found out about it. She posted her story to this thread on Reddit’s r/AmITheA**hole subreddit, and let’s just say that the people in the comments section were quick to tell this woman to get out of her own relationship.
The mentality there is that if he’s willing to cover for a cheater, then he very well may be a cheater himself. Rather than preach to the choir here, I have to interject to say that this perspective feels a bit far-fetched. There are people on Reddit who will tell you to RUN from your relationship the second your partner uses your toothbrush. I definitely think the original poster and her boyfriend need to have a long private discussion about their friend’s infidelity and where their individual and collective loyalties lie. But have the discussion before you up and leave!
