My mom is cheating on my dad, not physically (yet) but verbally on Facebook messenger. It started out friends because they had a surgery in common and now it's turning into something serious. The other guy is talking about "getting the other guy (my dad, you asshole!!!) out of the picture so they can be together" and I just don't know what to do, I've been crying for a few days straight at how unfaithful my mom is being. I don't know how to bring it up, she has a password set on her iPad but she didn't realize that I'm not as stupid as she thinks and I watched her type it in so I could read the messages because right from the start I knew the guy couldn't be trusted! My gut screamed it! So what do I do? How do I tell her how I feel when really I shouldn't have even known because how did I know the password?

Send him a message in Facebook and tell him that you know what's going on and that, if he keeps it up, you tell dad. Also, learn to take screen snapshots so you can get a picture of any incriminating evidence.
Meanwhile, when you are alone with mom, in the car let's say, simply be cold about it: "Mom why are you fooling aroubd with Mister X on Facebook?" It doesn't matter that you violated mom's privacy-she's still guilty. If mom punishes you, you punish mom by going to dad.
Basically, you need to be proactive toward nipping this in the bud and spare dad if you can, but if you can't, you tell dad.3

Call her out. Tell her you know exactly what she's been doing and ask her direct questions about it. This guy is an outlet for her and she is using him to make herself feel better, to feel connected, to feel more confident (my gut). Tell her you know and take it from there.1
