Finding out your S.O. has been cheating is never easy. But these people had it even worse.
Men and women of Reddit share stories on how they found out their partners were unfaithful. Some of them are ironically funny, while others are truly heartbreaking. Read 13 of them below.
1. Mistress at the wedding.
"His mistress told me at the wedding of a mutual friend so that was nice. I held my cool until we left, I wasn't giving either of them the satisfaction of seeing me look like the crazy person or ruining someone's big day," — flowerbright.
"An Instagram picture of her kissing another guy. She obviously didn't really think that one through," — kelmar101
3. On the road.
"I was driving across country to move. He had moved ahead of us and he chose to wait until we were 600 miles from home, about halfway there. This was after I had resigned my job, given up our apartment, packed a uhaul (that my mom and dad were driving), and became certified to teach in another state. I had the dog, cat, two mice and my child in my car. We turned around and went back after he told me. He left me with an incredible amount of debt and a great deal of heartache," — Iheartorange
"Every night after work, my pillow had a semen spot on it where he wiped off his spooge. Wife said I was drooling in my sleep to explain the wet spot. He would also use my bath towel to wipe off his expelled love load sometimes," — Rancid_Twat
5. Came home early...
"Came home early from work and walked in on it. Yep, that's about as cliche as it gets, but there you go. Funny thing is, I had wanted an open relationship, but he said that he couldn't deal with that. Turns out he was just selfish," — seriously-you-guys
6. The good old 'my ex is visiting' breakup.
"She told me to stay at a friends house as her ex boyfriend was coming over for 3 days," — JackRyan13
7. On the plane.
"Just got on a flight in London headed to Vegas. Sitting next to my GF and she wants to show me something she has planned for the trip so gets out her phone. It opens to the Messages and shows a chat with a guy (I know him) saying how much she is gonna miss him and how she doesn't wanna go away with me anyway. The doors close on the plane and that was a really fucking fun 10-11hrs," — jacques_ammeur
8. Caught a catfish.
"She had a number of alternate Facebook pages under pseudonyms. One day, one of them showed up on my "suggested friends" and I said "Hey, this girl looks a lot like SO." So, I looked at it. Sure enough, it was her, and she had an active relationship going on with someone else. I later found two more of these pages," — PrimeEachoes
9. During birth.
"When the baby came out Mexican. True story, we are both white," — Redman10485
10. The innocent toilet seat.
"Came home from working a double shift and found the toilet seat up. Either my wife didn't take a piss for 20 hours straight or there had been another man in my house. Suspected it was her "gay" friend from work. I also knew that said friend was trying to sell his house, so I called the real estate agent and asked the see his place. Right inside the front door, i recognized one of her jackets hanging in the mud room. Proceeded to the living room and bam...right on the fucking mantel was a picture of my wife and this guy. We divorced shortly after. She ended up marrying this guy...then cheated on him...and now they are divorced. Didn't feel bad for him at all," — signalthree
11. Secret, secret can you keep it?
"My dad told me. 5 years later. On the morning of my wedding to another woman. After I dumped the cheater for unrelated reasons. And my entire family pushed for me to get back together with her. AND THEY KNEW SHE WAS CHEATING," — Worlds_Best_Coffee
12. The phone bill.
"Phone bill was three times bigger than it should have been. Over 400 minutes to one number. The kicker was that she also had a company cell phone with unlimited calls that I obviously never would have known about and the guy was someone she worked with. She literally wanted to get caught because she was too weak to tell me to my face," — bfuller181
13. Thanks, Apple.
"My ex-fiancee had both an iPhone and a Macbook. If you know anything about iMessage, this means that he can send and receive texts from his laptop. I was using his laptop for homework (with his permission) while he was at work. He got a text message from his ex, who he talked with on a regular basis. I was uncomfortable with her since she was 'the one that got away', but she was married and he insisted he just thought of her as a good friend and I chose to believe and trust my then-fiancee. But the text she sent him that day seemed strange, just randomly saying "Just textin to say I love you" or something like that, and it just popped up in the corner for me to read. I opened the messages. Found hours of sexting messages. Hours. He'd been sexting her that morning even, when I had slept next to him all night and we'd cuddled and kissed goodbye when he went to work. I wasn't home when he returned,"— Chetanzi.
