    I was chatting with her via Facebook when the thought occurred to me that maybe she was more than friends with my dad at some point. (My mom definitely suspected at first.)

    As I was advised, I wonít ask.

    I've found it helpful before asking impulsive questions that could harm a relationship to decide whether I have a useful purpose for the information, and exactly what I would do with it.

    Are your parents still married? Don't chitchat with her if you think she cheated with your father on your mother. Talk to your own friends. Delete and block her from your social media if you have doubts about her integrity. Does your mother chitchat with her on social media? Does your father?

    Yes, don't harm the relationship with mom and dad over this.

    Yes, my parents are still married. I only talk with Liz occasionally; we all stopped being in touch with her while I was in college.

    Like, Liz and I are Facebook friends who occasionally talk on there. But thatís the extent to our communication.

    Well there is a good possibility they were just friends. Not everyone gets naked and smash, over simply enjoying each others company.

    I had a thought: would it be considered ok to ask Liz if she was more than friends with my father after he passes away? (Not that I want him to, of course. But would it still be considered none of my business even at that point?)

    I suppose you're still free to be the judge of that although I personally think it's a bit weird and a bad idea. I think people might think you're nosy and have trouble keeping to yourself. It might still be offensive and left field. I think what's more worrying is that you so badly want to know. Hopefully it's not hurting you not knowing for instance.
