A daughter's innocent comment to her dad accidentally exposed the affair the mom was having with the next-door neighbor.
It's a sad reality that many marriages are plagued by affairs.
via: GettyAccording to the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy, national surveys indicate that fifteen percent of married women and twenty-five percent of married men have had extramarital affairs. The incidence is about twenty percent higher when emotional and sexual relationships without intercourse are included.
In general, men are more likely to cheat on their partners than women are.

Some people can carry out their affairs for years without being suspected by their other halves...But one woman was recently caught out by her husband in the most unusual of ways.
The story, which was posted anonymously, was explained by the husband in question.
via: GettyGoing by the alias of Steven, he explained how he returned home from work one day and listened as his daughter told him about her day.
The young girl mentioned that her mom had been at the neighbor's house...Which prompted the dad to question his daughter further about her mom's whereabouts.
She recounted that when she arrived home from school she found her mom was not there...

This immediately rang alarm bells for Steven.How on earth would their neighbor know where his wife was? What were they up to?
When his wife returned home, Steven confronted her about what their daughter had said.
via: GettyAt first, she passed it off as nothing and came up with a quick excuse, but her husband said due to the length of time they had been together, he knew exactly how she acted when she was lying.
She eventually broke down.
via: GettySteven's wife admitted that she and the neighbor had "kissed and touched" but it "felt wrong" so she stopped it.
But Steven wasn't fooled."I know how she lies to everybody, and how good she is at it... So I believe that it went further than the kissing."
He explained that he kicked her out of the house...But he later agreed to marriage counseling and allowed her to move back in, which he said he did "more for the kids."
But shortly after letting her move back in, his wife revealed all.She later revealed the pair had been speaking for several weeks before they met up, as an innocent text message led to exchanging photos and flirty texts. "She said that when it was texting it wasn't real and when it got down to it in real life she felt like she was going to vomit."
The truth always comes out.
via: Getty"I'm literally going crazy because I do love her but it's starting to feel like it's the love you have for a longtime friend and not a love you feel for your wife," Steven wrote before asking other online users for advice... and trust me, the advice soon came flooding in.
Do you think that Steven should forgive his wife and give her a second chance?
