    5. "My cousin was visiting us for a long weekend. She and I were super close, like sisters. I went upstairs to put the baby to bed, and then I came back down to them going at it on the couch."

    6. "He gave me his Apple Watch to monitor my exercising because he thought I was fat. I saw all the texts between him and her. So I messaged her."

    "She flipped on me, blocked me. Saw him sending messages saying, 'Don’t tell __ we had sex.' I still have pics of those messages even though he’s long gone. This is to warn his future girlfriends and show proof."

    No

    7. "He would come home and have sex with me and would say, 'That’s what it’s supposed to be like...' (apparently, the sex with her was bad). Took me a bit to get the clue."

    "He was in the bathroom for long periods of time, could never find his phone, and started wearing Axe body spray. We had four kids — youngest was 15 months."

    8. "He had cheated before, and I was again suspicious, but it was verified when he sent me a text that said, 'I told Jesse we were dating. He's happy for us.' Um, you're not 'dating' your WIFE."

    "I gave him a week to end it and sober up, because his affairs always started with a drunk hookup. I told him to leave. We're divorced."

    9. "My best friend’s husband (now ex) called me and told me she had slept with my husband."

    "I confronted them both, and they admitted it. They can have each other."

    10. "I found a note in the sock drawer while putting away the laundry. He had been sneaking around with the waitress at the diner he hung out at with his buddies while I was working."

    "Seven pages of her feelings for him, what they had done together, and some absolutely terrible poetry. Yep, got out of there as fast as I could. Worked out for me, though — met a great guy a few years later, and he and I have been together for nearly 20 years."

    11. "I woke up in the night with a bad feeling, got out of bed, and found my brother sleeping with my wife."

    u/donjacky

    12. "I'd been on the road for work and got to go home a day early to surprise my wife and two children (2 years and 8 months old). I walked in to my ex and her 'coffee friend' snuggling on the couch — With. My. Kids. In. The. Same. Room."

    "I was livid. Of course, she denied everything. We split up weeks later."

    13. "We had a linked Apple account — we both had the Find My iPhone app. Found out what all the late nights at work really were."

    14. "Christmas Eve, I was on the computer looking for a photo for a last-minute gift — an ornament with a family photo, which I did for her as a tradition every year. Instead, I found a love letter to her from some guy at the gym."

    "I kept looking and found tons more. Over the next year, it just got worse and worse, to a point you'd never believe. Gosh, that was a fun Christmas for me and our young children."

    15. "She was in my Instagram recommendations, and her profile picture was of the two of them."

    16. "Came home early from work on Christmas Eve. As I walked upstairs to our bedroom, my husband immediately came out and closed the door behind him. I had to ask him twice if there was a girl in there, and he finally said yes."

    "He also made me stand in the kitchen so I couldn't see who she was as she walked out. Took me three years before I could enjoy Christmas again."

    And finally...

    17. "I got a new job with a cellphone company. The first bill came in with call details. She was on the phone an hour a day with this number while supposedly at work. I called, and a dude answered."

    "I hung up and asked her about it. She lied and said it was a gal pal of hers. I told her I knew she was lying and called the number again. The dude answered. Fuck you, Brooke."
