Don't know what to do regarding my fathers cheating and my mom not knowing

My parents have been together forever and for as long as I can remember my dad has always been unfaithful to my mother. Why she stands for it I'll never know (shes the best and deserves better). My dad is a great father just a bad husband when it comes to monogamy. He's never accepted that he's been unfaithful but we know he has been. He works in a security company and usually starts cheating with co workers. Last year my dad was cheating on my mom and my mother was terribly depressed. Somehow the cheating stopped and everything got better (my mom felt better I guess). His cell phone line is on my telephone plan. My mom asked me to see his call records because she is suspecting that he is cheating again. (I know this is wrong for her to do but its not the issue I need help in) sure enough he is talking to another woman. I don't want to tell my mom my findings because she is never going to leave him and it would just upset her. I do have the power to block this number from contacting my father and vice versa. Should I do this? I don't want to cause problems for my parents but it gets me so mad and hurts me that he is doing this to my mother. What should I do? Should I at least block the number?

It's none of your business what goes on between your parents. If your mother wants to confront your father, she should not be using you as the go between.

Tell her that you've found something she may want to address, but that you do not want to be in the middle. Tell your father that you've checked his call logs, as the maintaining person on the account, and that your mother may be suspicious. Then, tell them both that they need to be adults, address the situation, and leave you out of the middle.
