11. A Knock on the Door

A Reddit user who calls herself Headcase-and-a-half tells the story of the day she found out her husband was cheating. “June 1, 2018. Normal day. A Friday. My husband had kissed me goodbye and gone to work. I was cleaning the house for a friend who was coming to stay the weekend. The doorbell rang. There was a man at my door who introduced himself as the husband of a woman who my husband worked with. He was there to tell me that my husband and his wife were having an affair. Six months prior, this man caught them, and told his wife that she had to end the affair. 

“He thinks that she did end it…for about three months. But then they started up again. When he found out they were at it again, he called my husband (because he knew if he confronted him in person, he’d be in a jail cell for what he’d have done). On the phone, he told my husband to leave his wife alone or else he would come and tell me everything that was happening. Apparently, my husband thought that he was bluffing. So I was literally the last to know. My husband never came home again. He got an AirBnB and a lawyer. The divorce was December 21, 2018. We had been together for 24 years. Still hurts.”

10. A Noise Upstairs

A woman named dddalllasss tells a horrifying story of the night she discovered her fiancé with another woman. “I owned a house with my fiancé. One night, I woke up and he wasn’t in bed. I went searching. His truck and another vehicle were in the driveway. Then, I went upstairs and found the guest bedroom was locked. After barging my way in… I found him with another woman in bed. That bed happened to be my childhood bed.” 

“He forced me out of the room… literally grabbed me by the neck and pushed me out and closed the door back. I knew I couldn’t do anything at that point, so I called his parents who lived a few blocks away. His dad showed up and another fight broke out. I ended up leaving and staying with his parents until dawn, and moved out that weekend. We let the house foreclose, and I never looked back. Nine years later, it’s finally off my credit report. I’m happily married to an amazing man and we own a beautiful home together.”

9. The Missing Condoms Add Up

A man on Reddit who goes by the name Affable-Moon tells the story of how he found out about his fiancée’s affair. “In a relationship for 6 years, and I broke up one month before our wedding because I found out my fiancée had cheated on me. Two years into my relationship, lots of suspicious little acts kept adding up. The biggest one being that I found some condoms were missing from my drawer. I confronted my fiancée, and I was very sad, angry, and confused. She denied any affair. Four years went by. About a month before our wedding, she broke down and confessed that she had indeed slept with her ex boyfriend at the time. That broke my heart. I had always had a bad feeling that she had been lying to me over the years.”

“She also had an undying jealousy towards all of my friends who are women; clearly projecting. It hurt that she had cheated on me, but hurt way worse that she lied to me for four years. I’m grateful that she told me before the wedding. We called it off due to the mistrust, amongst many other things that weren’t going well in our relationship. I genuinely believe that she was going through some really heavy emotional turmoil. So I don’t take it so personally. With that said, I have cut off all communication to her because I simply could not trust her after that. All’s well that ends well; and have met the love of my life, and we plan to get married as soon as this Covid-19 takes a hike and it’s safe to gather in groups again.”

8. The Last to Know

A woman on Reddit called EndlessNite tells her tragic story of how her husband was cheating on her. “I was 8 months pregnant with our second child. He wanted to go visit his brother for the weekend. I understood why he’d want to go alone, because a new baby really makes it hard to spend quality time. But I asked if he could take our 3-year-old son so he could see his grandma and cousins. He said they were planning on drinking, shooting, and hunting with his brother, and wasn’t sure it would be a good idea for our son to be around. I agreed and he left for the weekend. After he left, I got a call from his best friend telling me that he’ll be in town for the weekend, and he wanted to meet up with my husband.” 

“My husband was terrible at answering his phone. I told him unfortunately my husband was visiting back home for the whole weekend, so it was bad timing. His best friend then said ‘Ok, I’m going to call you back’, and hung up very abruptly. Turns out my husband and his best friend’s wife had been caught cheating a few months previously. His best friend gave them a chance to make it right…I don’t know why. He threatened to tell me if they didn’t stop. Well, they didn’t stop and he told me. The worst part was that my husband’s entire family knew and never told me. These people were my family for 5 years and nothing. It’s been almost 10 years now and I’m so much happier but it was definitely an eye opening experience.”

7. The Secret Threesome

A Redditor who goes by the name of Shomzy told the story of how one phone call changed everything. “The husband of one of the women he was cheating on me with called me at work. At first I didn’t believe him and hung up. How could the man I spent the past 8 years with do something so hurtful? Still a part of me had doubt. He had affairs in other relationships.  We also had a rocky patch early in the beginning where I suspected an affair but didn’t have proof. I told my boss I felt sick and had to leave early.”

“I called this guy back and found out that my ex and his wife along with one of their friends were all sleeping together in a threesome for about a year. He had confronted my ex and told him that he was going to tell me. But my ex convinced him to wait a month since my mother had just died. I took my time coming home and confronted him and told him to pack and leave. Since then, I’ve pieced together a lot of what happened and all the lies he told me. If I was in a different headspace I might have caught on to the affairs earlier. I also found videos hidden on one of our computers. He was having booty calls in our apartment while my daughter was home. At that point, it put the headstone on any possibility of reconciliation.

6. This Leech Wasn’t Even Subtle About Having an Affair

In this story by JustPartOfTheTerrain, her husband barely tried to hide his affair. “My now ex husband casually mentioned that his coworker (a woman) was having marriage difficulties. I told him at that point to be careful because she might be using him as her reason to end her marriage. Maybe a month goes by and he decides to go on a long road trip ‘to do his own thing’. On his way out of the house he asks me, ‘Do I look okay?’ Since he talked about his coworker so much, I had put a keylogger on his PC. Sure enough, they were together on the road trip, and he was telling her about all the nice things he wanted to buy her. I called her husband. He filed for divorce right away. But I forgave my husband and tried to work it out.” 

“Several years later, my husband starts staying up later after I go to bed, and gets up before me.  Again, I get those concerns he’s cheating. I check the phone bill and there are so many calls to this one number. This time I didn’t try to work it out. He had been unemployed for 2 years, claimed he was looking for a job, and did zero around the house. This time, he denied the affair. But I just said it didn’t matter.  I wanted a divorce. Turns out I was right, and he moved in with her as soon as I filed. He even had the audacity to ask my lawyer for alimony. Last I heard from his sister, he still doesn’t work. He and his new wife live off of the divorce settlement she received from her ex-husband, which is now running out.”

5. This Woman Discovered Her Husband Was Juggling Multiple Wives

A Redditor who goes by the name ZomeZingOrOther tells this crazy story. “I had my suspicions. We were expats living in Singapore, and he was supposed to go out of town. Barely said goodbye to me or our 2 children. I looked out the window and saw him get into a woman’s car. Later I got a phone call from a woman who said she was his fiance. She worked for the airline and found that he was traveling with another woman. Later, I found a receipt for a high-end store in his briefcase. He told me that I was not even allowed to buy clothing for myself. They looked up the receipt and said ‘Oh yes Mr. Z, he was here with his Thai wife’. She looked up at me, waited a few beats, and then her face just fell.” 

“The woman at the airline has two children with him, and Thai woman had one child with him. Keep in mind I hadn’t lived in the states for 10 years, and I didn’t have a driver’s license. I had no credit, and no money. Eventually I packed bags, hid them away and tried to figure out how to get back to the United States. He had the bright idea one day that I needed to go visit my parents, and bought me a one way ticket. I figured he was never going to let me come back. He married a Singaporean woman. I know for a fact he was engaged to someone else for 4 years while they were married. After scamming her out of hundreds of thousands of dollars, he dumped her and moved to a different country. He is married again with two children.”

4. The Secret Snapchat

A user by the name of -Meow found out her boyfriend had a secret life on social media. “Hanging out with my boyfriend one day, I saw a message thread while he was on his computer on Snapchat to a group of friends. I noticed it was not the same Snapchat I had for him. I didn’t say anything at that moment, but remembered the username. Later, I decided to try to log in to his account. Voila, the same password he used for everything worked. There were HUNDREDS of chats with different women. I scrolled through the messages and realized this dated back for around 3 years. Even on my birthday and our anniversaries- days where he spent the entire day with me- he still managed to do this behind my back.”

“I called him and demanded he come talk to me. When he arrived, I confronted him. He panicked and immediately started apologizing. Livid, I took his phone and drove to my best friend’s house. There, I found he had signed up for every dating app available with messages from multiple women on all of them. My boyfriend posted videos of himself jerking off on Vine and even responded to local Craigslist ads for sex. He desperately tried to redeem himself, changed his number, cleared his phone and got a flip phone. But you can’t come back from that kind of damage. The entire 4 year relationship, I had absolutely no idea. He never did anything sketchy, and we rarely fought. I was so in love with him. Turns out, of course, he was just great at hiding everything. I never saw it coming.”

3. She Clearly Wasn’t Raised Right

A Redditor called Guy_Code realized that his college girlfriend never broke up with her ex from back home. “College girlfriend and we lived together for a year. I realized she would always have her phone on silent or just plain ignore calls from ‘Jennifer.’ One day I wrote down the number and called it a week later. It ends up being her high school boyfriend who she had never broken up with before she came to college. Neither of us knew about each other.”

“She had been visiting him when she went home to see her parents on some weekends and breaks. I broke up with her soon after. Her mom even had the audacity to reach out to me and say that ‘Sometimes you just have to accept things.’ And how I owed her daughter an apology for breaking up with her. It got worse, but that was the gist.”

2. Being Caught Up in a Pyramid Scheme is Her True Karma

This next story by EBone12355 is actually hilarious. “Walked in on my girlfriend while she was having sex with another guy. ‘What are you doing here?!’ she says. ‘You gave me a key, remember? I ended up not working today and wanted to surprise you.’ 15 years later she reaches out, leaving me a message that she’d like to talk. I figure she’s doing some 12-step thing or something and wants to make amends. Nope. She wanted to try and sell me on Amway.”

1. And The Winner For Worst Cheating Story Goes To…

A Redditor named DMukai tells a story of how one of his coworkers found out his wife was cheating in the most humiliating way possible. “One of my former co-workers loaded in a SD card with a scanned project file on it. He put it into the conference room, PC and we were treated to naked pics of his wife fucking another guy. We were just stunned. This was in a senior budgetary meeting with the outside accountants and auditors. He was sitting right there and we were looking at his wife and another guy going at it.”

“I reached over and shut the projector off. Nobody said anything. He got up and walked out and drove off in his car. Left his cell phone and laptop sitting on the table. He wound up driving to his parents house 3 states away. He was gone for a week.”
