What's worse than getting caught up in your own personal drama? Getting caught up in somebody else's personal drama.

So, what would you do if a close confidante confided in you that she was cheating on her husband? As her friend, you might feel obliged to keep it a secret. After all, she implicitly asked you not to tell a soul. Eventually, however, you might be overcome by guilt and wonder whether you should tell her spouse about her infidelity.

In this video, marriage educator and YourTango Expert John Gray, Ph.D. explains that although this situation can be tricky, whether or not you should divulge the information all depends on the strength of your relationships, both with your friend and with her spouse. Dr. Gray emphaizes the delicacy of this situation, adding, "We shouldn't go around telling everyone everything we know. There's something called confidentiality."
