I Caught My Husband Cheating and Now Preparing My Ice-Cold Revenge

3 weeks ago

Cheating on a loved one is hard to forgive. Especially when he or she betrayed you at a difficult time. A woman wrote to redditors that her husband had cheated on her while she was recovering from childbirth. Now she is preparing to take revenge on her husband.

She wrote:

“I came across texts my husband exchanged with a woman while having access to a synced tablet. It turned out his affair began when I was postpartum. I love him deeply, and it felt like my heart was broken into a million pieces.

I knew that I would never let this go and forgive him, but my curiosity got the best of me. I wanted to know why. I wanted to know what she had that I didn’t. So, I became obsessed with reading every single chat they’ve had.

He felt like he was alive again. He was happy and excited. She’s single and childless, so she had all the time in the world to make him her priority. He felt seen and desired by her, while I was overwhelmed with the arrival of our baby and didn’t give him attention as much as before.”

She added:

“I still had access to the texts they exchanged on our common tablet, but of course, he was unaware of it. I read thousands of messages between them until I came up with an evil plan. I started being everything he fantasized about. In the beginning, it felt weird for me, and he was confused, but I just went on.

Every time he made plans with her, I found a way to make him stay, or I made sure that I sent him exhausted to her. The texting between them became less and less frequent, and the passion and excitement seemed to subside with time. Soon, answering her became more of a chore for my husband. She started complaining.

He started pulling away. He was happier at home. He started texting me again during the day, saying he couldn’t wait to come home to me. The sweetest texts of how he missed me. He was his old self again.

One day, what I planned and waited patiently for happened. He ended things with her. He told her that he still loved me. Her services weren’t needed, in other words. I felt relief, and at last, I could proceed with my second plan.”

She went on saying:

“I’ve had meanwhile secured an apartment for my baby and me, and I have put everything in order and prepared for custody. Shared or otherwise. I have divided the money and transferred my share to a third account, and it will stay there until the divorce proceedings and the dividing of the assets. Now I am preparing for my divorce. He will get the papers the day I leave for my new life with my baby in my new apartment.

I know I will get a lot of hate for this, because I have ‘neglected’ my husband and pushed him to seek solace in another woman’s arms, when I apparently could have given him what he sought all along. However, in my defense, I didn’t do it intentionally.

Our lives had just been altered drastically with the arrival of our baby, and I was trying to navigate this new and exciting chapter. I was immersed in this new kind of happiness that I thought I was sharing with him. And I was trying to get to know my new body, that I couldn’t recognize anymore.

He could have come to me with his hurt. He could have talked to me about his suffering. He could have tried to make me understand, but he chose not to. He decided to deceive me. He ruined our love and our future together.”

Other Redditors expressed their support for her by commenting on the post:

  • I just hope you took tonnes of screenshots of those texts. This isn’t petty revenge, but nuclear revenge, and I for one ain’t mad at you. Revenge is best served cold, and this is ice-cold. All the best to you and your little one in your new life. © Scribb74 / Reddit
  • In all seriousness, it’s hard to leave a partner with a new baby, and I know that prepping for and starting a divorce isn’t exactly easy, and I’m glad you used that time wisely. He had no problem pretending everything was all good when he was cheating, why should you not return the favor? He set the standard here. © Significant_Cat_3 / Reddit
  • I would have immediately raged at him. But I always applauded petty revenge. You didn’t neglect him. You’re not neglecting someone if you’re unable to do the same things as you could before you had a baby. Wish you the best, and I hope you have screenshots of all the evidence of the affair so he can’t act like it came out of nowhere to others. © Lost-and-dumbfound / Reddit
  • Why do these kinds of men expect things to go back to pre baby times after the baby is born? It’s like they don’t see that this tiny thing will need attention and care. I feel like they think that the baby will be making itself 5-star meals as soon as it gets home. And will potty-train itself to boot. And the only thing they will have to do is show up at school events and the high school graduations. And everything else works itself pit without them. You did nothing wrong. I hope you find yourself and baby in a better future. © porcelain_doll_eyes / Reddit
  • Well, I, for one, am proud of you. Not just for the icy revenge but for your composure and strength. He annihilated your life together, you’re just making it hurt him, too. Which he deserves. Now, if he does try to go back to her, he has made it 100% clear that she is second best. Whether she opts to continue being #2 is her choice, but she will never forget it. © hungrybuniker / Reddit
