On the off chance that she doesn't come back to you about what you've told her, double-check to make sure the email went through (that's why you bcc'd yourself). If it did, drop it. She may be embarrassed (though she has no reason to be), or perhaps she decided to handle it privately or even not address it at all with her husband. There's the possibility that she knew about his profile, and perhaps his infidelity is an ongoing issue in their marriage. She may even be cheating, too. There's a lot that goes on in other people's relationships, and even the closest friends aren't privy to certain details.

Good luck!
