So, last month my mom said she wanted to divorce from my dad, So the divorce procedure started around late May/early June. But I just found out that she's been with another man since January, which mean she cheated on him for months.
I don't know if I should tell my dad. I think he deserves to know, but I'm afraid I would hurt him as he still thinks that there is a chance for her to come back.
What do you think I should do?

Absolutely tell him. He thinks there is a chance that she might return and if he is right and she does return, and you don't tell him, you've basically given your mother a free pass on cheating your father. Is that something you can live with, knowing that not only does he not know the truth about his wife, but that she might be even then cheating on him? Can you honestly say that that is better than him learning the truth now? Yes, it will probably cause him grief if he finds out and believes you, but at least then he will know the truth. Who knows, he might even then want her back. But if you think you can live with yourself after not telling him, then go ahead and not tell him. But don't ever have the audacity to consider yourself a good person afterwards.1

it's your dad but by the end of it it's between. your mom and dad. you're just a kid in their eyes. it will hurt your dad and yes it. Will hurt you knowing what your mom did. but I think you should stay out of it. just be his daughter you know. I hope everything turns out well4
