A man posted a thought-provoking story about the ultimate “revenge” he got on his cheating ex-wife.
The man posted the story to Reddit, explaining that it happened six years ago but he reflected on it and decided to share.
“So once upon a time I was married. It was a good relationship for the most part. Good communication and seldom any arguing. Over time my wife meets a guy, let's call him Dan. Dan, on the surface, seemed like a cool dude. He and my wife worked together and seemed very close. I didn't really care, they were co-workers. Everybody has that co-worker they're close to, right?” he wrote.
“Over time, I sense that Dan and my wife are getting too close. She texted him constantly and I started getting suspicious, but I didn't want to say anything because I didn't want to come off as jealous. One night I snooped through her phone and found some explicit texts she sent to Dan. It basically confirmed that a) she was cheating on me, and b) she wanted to leave me for him.”
The man went on to reveal that he confronted his wife about the situation, and she finally confessed to the affair — even telling him that she loved Dan and not him. They agreed to an amicable divorce.
“Now, as much as I wanted to kick the shit out of Dan, I didn't want to risk going to jail. At this point, they were in a relationship living together. Considering she has known him for less than a year at that point, I knew things were going to end badly,” he wrote.
He then said he moved to the west coast following the divorce and had no communication with his ex until recently, when she messaged him on Facebook to apologize for the way she treated him, as well as to let him know that she’s miserable and misses him.
“I decided to look through her profile. She's married to Dan, has 3 kids with him and they're both horrendously fat. Apparently soon after they moved in together she became pregnant with his kid. She had to quit her job because of the pregnancy and since then hasn't had a job. They got married while she was still pregnant and had 2 more kids. They're living off food stamps and government aid too,” he said.
“At that point I felt vindicated. I wanted to get revenge on her and Dan for so long. To see they fucked up their own lives so bad was good enough.”
The man’s story was much different than the type of revenge many spouses get on their cheating exes. Another revenge story involved a man who caught his girlfriend by arranging to surprise her along with her entire family while she was meeting with her lover.
