Break-ups aren’t often pretty, especially when one partner breaks the ultimate bond of trust by cheating on their significant other. Recent stories making headlines include a wife who destroyed her husband’s expensive ride and a jealous husband who snipped off a homewrecker’s important body part.
An angry wife recently unleashed her wrath on her cheating husband of 15 years on Craigslist, according to Cosmopolitan. The woman wrote a very public open letter addressing the woman, or women, who had an affair with her husband.
“You probably don’t even know that we’re not separated, and up until I found his dating site profiles, and flew back to try and rescue my marriage, I did not know there was a problem…
Be aware that everyday, he wrote me loving, wonderful messages, just as he was talking to you and wooing you.
As far as I knew, we were strong in our relationship. If he’s been telling you something different, get my number from him, and let me show you the messages…
So the following may be you, or it may be ‘multiples’ of you. I do not know how many of ‘you’ there are. So read to the end. You’ll figure out if it’s the guy you’re dating. Perhaps one of your friends will see this and figure it out for you..”
She began the letter quite civilly by laying out the facts regarding the situation before going into full details about her discovery.
“You left your mascara in my husband’s old vehicle (he bought a newer one in late September). It was a shimmery brown Covergirl.
I think you left some clothes here too. I threw them away. You also left a bra. You’re size 36 B. I’m a 34C. The bra stank with [body odor]. (Of course, it maybe that it belongs to someone else….. After all, his dating profiles –OurTime.com and Match.com–showed that he was horn-doggin’ over a 120 mile radius… )
So he announced we’re getting a divorce after I confronted him. He’s playing ‘victim,’ and telling me it’s a BIG misunderstanding, and that I’m being ‘controlling.’ I’ve pointed out that NO woman would agree my behavior is ‘controlling’ after finding her husband’s dating profiles which say he’s ‘looking for marriage’ to someone else. Unless your version of ‘controlling’ includes an inability to understand I’m upset about the sub-text of ‘Why can’t I go off and search for my next wife?’ or ‘Why can’t I just get laid behind your back?’”
Clearly not holding back, the woman gave her no good, cheating husband a humiliating verbal thrashing. Despite being an anonymous letter, we’re pretty sure that man can figure out that he’s the subject.
“Well, recently he’s lost weight, quit drinking (that was 15 years of h*ll for me and the kids) bought himself a NEW truck (without consulting / asking me). But guess what? That nice house and property you saw, and new truck, and all his new tools? ***I OWN HALF OF ALL OF IT***.
So you won’t be living in my nice house, we’ll be selling it. And he may not have mentioned all my grad school debt… We’ll be splitting that as well. So guess what you have???
You, my dear, are the proud new doormat for a middle-aged man who has been a contractor-type all his life. He’s fairly smart though, but at 56 his body will not hold out much longer, and he’s doesn’t have a wide skill-set. He’s somewhat heavy-set, pretty good looking, but he will not be wealthy after we split things (nor will I).
Congrads! He’s quite the catch! (Well, it looks that way from the outset, now, before the divorce) My prediction though is that he’ll have to move into a little apartment he can afford. (I don’t think he thought all these consequences through. Somehow, in his mind, I’d just disappear and leave him with you, the house, the toys, and the assets?)
Oh, and you’ll have my dogs, too. They were a present for us from me, and I trained them for a year… but since they’re purebreds, guess what? THEY’RE PROPERTY WITH AN ATTACHED VALUE!!!! My guess on their value: They’re worth about about $3K. Thank you very much!!!! I’ll take something of equal value, like the TV, generator, fridge and some of those nifty new tools!…
Of course, since you’ve been boffing my husband, and you must know I am still in the picture (my stuff is ALL OVER THE HOUSE) …OR… you may just be incredibly stupid…
Maybe you deserve him.
You and he ruined my life, stole the life I spent 15 years trying to built with him, destroyed my identity… I wish I could say I ‘wish you the best,’ but it’s more like ‘I think you’re about to get what you deserve.’
If you’re a real, actually nice person, that has been duped, just know that he’s gotten very good at lying. He’s a lot of fun. He’s a great cook, and a great talker…And he’s not single, he’s just trying to get laid. Or worse. He’s courting you as the next Mrs., knowing that our divorce will leave him very, very financially screwed. And you, my dear, are lookin’ to him like his life boat. Get out while you can.
GOOD LUCK WITH HIM! THE PACKAGING IS DAMAGED AND WHAT’S INSIDE IS PRETTY SPENT, TOO!”
