Uh Oh! I Caught My Uncle Having An Affair
Georgina caught her uncle having an affair. She called The Cooper and Anthony Show to ask, what her obligation is here?
We told her that she doesn’t have all the facts. He might be in an open consensual relationship for all she knows. People who are in that scenario usually don’t broadcast their personal details to the family.
The messenger always takes the blame so we said not to tell the auntie. However, he made it her business by taking this other woman out in public. If he was trying to have a discreet affair he would have taken her to a motel or another city, but the fact that he was right there in the open, he may have wanted to get caught or he’s in an open marriage.
