Hi Sweet and Sour,

You know some things should not be shared between parents and their children. Mum and dad split up for a while. It was just a separation because dad wanted to stray a bit and mum wouldn’t have it. She made dad move out and he sowed his newfound wild oats. The novelty wore out quickly.

Dad now wants to come home. Mum has agreed but only on the condition that dad goes for an STI test first before they share a bed and if he’s got anything from someone else, all bet are off and so is the marriage. This is where it gets tricky for me. When it first all blew up and mum threw dad out, in a moment of anger she confided in me that she felt completely justified for having had several affairs in the previous year!!

I’ve kept my mouth shut while mum’s being a complete hypocrite. In the back of my mind I’m thinking that if my dad does have any sexually transmitted disease, it may have been my mum who gave it to him. So, do I tell my dad? Do I insist my mum gets checked too? I just never wanted to be in such an insidious position. This is torture for me.

GAYLENE, SAFETY BAY, WA
