I feel my wife has an inappropriate relationship with my sons

Customer Question

I feel my wife has an inappropriate relationship with my son's friend. He is 14 and she is 43. I found they text each other frequently. Over the 3 month span, I counted over 1,000 messages. I confronted her on the matter and she says that she was trying to be a mother figure. The kid has a mother. There are times where the kids will lie on the bed while she's sitting on the bed folding laundry or getting ready to go to sleep. I completely lost it the last time.

I'm worried about what her true feelings are. I'm even more worried about the embarrassment this will cause my kids and i should the boy's mother become more in tune to this. What do I do?
