My Girlfriend Is a Mistress

I consider myself a pretty good friend to those closest to me. And I usually have a very high tolerance on moral judgment, but I’ve been struggling with one girlfriend for the last few months. She’s been “dating” a married man who has a child, and I put dating in quotes because I don’t believe it’s real dating when one of the parties involved has a spouse. It’s just cheating, isn’t it? If it were anyone else I’d say yuck what a piece of sh*t for carrying on some affair with a married man. But because it’s a close friend of mine I gave it some time hoping the relationship would end and she’d get her head back on straight. But it doesn’t seem to be headed that way. There seems to be no end to the affair in the immediate future even though she wants him to leave his wife and he won't. He probably won't ever. I don’t know what to do? I really don’t approve. But I don’t want to come off as morally superior…
