Reddit Buzz: Man Learns His Wife Is Cheating And Live-Updates The Fallout
One very popular page on Reddit is one where a man, whose Reddit handle is “MyLifeSuxNow,” a guy who has written in excruciating detail how he discovered his wife was cheating on him after he took her phone – a woman he calls Jenny – and discovered salacious messages with a man named Zack. The first part of the Reddit post was submitted two days ago, on January 16, when the unnamed man posted a thread describing how he messed up by reading his wife’s text messages and found out Jenny was cheating. It’s a page that’s so popular, Reddit temporarily placed it in read-only mode due to heavy traffic.
After a long introduction that talks about his history with his wife, the Reddit poster begins updating the Reddit post with live updates about the hiring of a private investigator. Since the man says he makes $212,000 annually compared to his wife Jenny’s $30,000 salary, he claims he doesn’t worry about getting screwed in a divorce. He also says that he and Jenny have a pre-nuptial agreement, so that further solidifies his confidence in making it out of the marriage financially sound – but it doesn’t help to take away his hurt from learning that Jenny is sleeping with another man. Zack is a guy, the husband claims, who is not as physically well endowed as he is, so the husband doesn’t understand why Jenny has cuckolded him, especially since he and his wife have an active sex life.
“I have screenshotted the texts and emailed them to myself. I feel like someone has shot me in the stomach :(“
As each minute passes, it seems the original Reddit poster has more updates for his enthralled Reddit audience, who are continually thanked by the original poster for all their comments and recommendations. The Reddit poster even thanks all of those Reddit commentators who claim his story is fake. Eventually, what follows is a days-long update which displays Jenny in collusion with another woman named Carly, as they both go through a series of maneuvers that confuses their husbands and the private investigators assigned to trail them, but in the end, the Reddit poster claims Jenny has come home and the affair has been exposed.
“Yelling, anger, sadness, crying, a ton of crying, pleading, explaining, contradicting. This isn’t a great place to be right now. A huge part of my life is falling apart around me. I’ll find a way to cope. I can get through this. So can my brother. I’ll update as soon as I can.”
As reported by the Huffington Post, women can sometimes cheat more than men, although cases like the recent Greg Anthony arrest for solicitation of prostitution – as reported by the Inquisitr – prove that certain men cheat as well.
