A newly married man landed in hot water recently when his other wife was found on Facebook.
A 38-year-old Australian woman was sharing news of her recent nuptials on Facebook when she received an alarming message from a stranger: “Hello, new Mrs. Keyet. How can you be Mrs. Keyet when I am still Mrs. Keyet? From the old Mrs. Keyet.”
The devastating message turned out to be true. Although the scoundrel husband had revealed a previous marriage to his new bride, she was led to believe that the union had been legally dissolved.
Mr. Keyet even continued the ruse during the couple’s recent civil ceremony, claiming to the presiding Family Court official that his first marriage ended in divorce.
However, after the alleged other wife was found on Facebook, the new Mrs. Keyet began to doubt her husband’s honesty.
She began researching court documents, desperately seeking legal proof that her husband wasn’t lying about the dissolution of his first marriage.
Sadly, there was no proof to be found. The new Mrs. Keyet soon realized that the original union, which took place nearly two decades ago, was still legally binding.
Crushed by the news that her husband had been deceiving her all along, the new Mrs. Keyet kicked him to the curb. She was soon granted an annulment by the Australian courts. Mr. Keyet did not bother to make an appearance during the legal proceedings, choosing instead to convey his feelings to his former bride by text message.
The short sentiment simply read, “I think I’ve put you through enough hurt.” The message apparently did not have much impact on his ex-wife. She is currently mulling over the possibility of bringing bigamy charges against him.
How would you react if your husband’s other wife was found on Facebook? Would you file bigamy charges against him?
