Oh dear. That is a bad situation! =( I honestly don't know what to tell you to do...
Don't feel guilty, okay? Just think about the situation like this:  If you confront your mom about it, what will happen? Would she feel guilty, or just get mad?   Also, what would happen if you told your dad?  What you DON'T want to do, is make the situation worse, by causing a big blow-up. It kind of depends on your parent's personalities. Like, whether they get mad easily or not.

I tried facing my mom but she keeps avoiding it for years, and I can never face my dad he gets angry fast and I feel bad for him. It's just I can't even tell my own sister she's in my moms side. I'm in a lot of stress right now and this is making it harder.. Never In my life have I had much hate for my own mother!! Anyways Thanks for the reply

Rose: It is that bad. When you marry someone, you are promising to be theirs FOREVER. And ONLY theirs. You are promising to spend the rest of your life with them, and to love them in a way you don't love anyone else. Too many people break these promises, and breaking a promise is just like lying. It is serious. It's more than a skip up. But it can be forgivable, if both will be honest and forgive each other.
 
Sara, you need to talk to your mom. Don't let her go until she listens, and talks to you. Try and do it calmly, and even if she gets mad and yells, don't. It won't help. Tell her she needs to tell your dad, because it isn't your place to. *hugs*

I think you must just stay calm and have faith in God, and pray God that everything turns back to normal and that your mom and dad live a great life ahead.

I'm so sorry. I know how you feel, you can't lie to your dad, but your mom will get mad if you tell him... You need to have someone else tell your dad somehow...
p.s. my name is Sara J., what a coincidence!

Stay calm and have faith in yourself, God isn't always there to help you out. You have to learn how to be self-sufficient.
