Father-in-law spills the beans

Q: On a fishing trip with my father-in-law, he alluded to an affair he’d had and the problems it had caused in his marriage to my wife’s beloved mother (who died six years ago). He’d had some beers and seemed to be speaking “man to man,” but he didn’t tell me not to say anything. I’m torn about whether to tell my wife. I don’t want to wreck her illusion of her parents’ marriage.
