#28 Those Aren't Mine

When I was doing laundry one weekend, I noticed a pair of boxers that I was pretty sure I didn't own. At the same time, I wasn't one to keep track of all my undergarments, since I had so many. I went over to my wife to ask her if she knew.

"Did I always own these?" I asked her.

Her eyes widened and her mouth dropped. After a few seconds, I realized what she had been up to.

#27 Surprise?

It was her birthday. I had a surprise party set up for her, and all of our friends were in on it. I told her that I wasn't going to be home for her birthday due to a business trip I had to go on. She, therefore, assumed that she would have the house to herself.

Fast forward to the night of her birthday. My friend saw her car pull up, so we turned off the lights and got into our hiding places. When she opened the door, we all yelled, "Surprise!"

Then, everyone went quiet. There she was, my girlfriend, holding another man's hand, leading him into what she thought was going to be an empty house.

#26 Caught On Chromecast

We couldn't find anything interesting to watch on Netflix, so my girlfriend offered to just stream a movie and Chromecast it to our TV. She accidentally Chromecasted her screen instead, and I ended up seeing her private conversation with some "Steve" I had never heard of before. I thought maybe it was just one of her friends, but from the looks of the messages, it was clear they were more than just friends with each other.

#25 She Was Busy Getting Busy

A customer came in on Valentine's day, bought a $50 teddy bear, roses, chocolates, the works. He was super excited. Came in the next day to return them. He'd walked in on his girlfriend and another man.


#24 That's Wrong For Too Many Reasons

Someone I know is getting a divorce because her husband is having an affair with his 13-year-old cousin. Apparently, the age thing isn't as big a deal (legally) in their location as the incest thing, but the whole situation is all sorts of messed up.


#21 Under The Same Roof!?

My girlfriend of 5.5 years cheated on me while I was asleep in the next room (in our bed). I found out the next day. I remember her coming in to kiss me at some point in the night. I never had the stones to ask whether it was before or after.

#20 Cruel. But Also Kind Of Genius.

I heard this story from a friend who's friends with a girl who has 4 boyfriends.

On her birthday, she requested that all four boyfriends buy her the same purse (neither knew of each other). The boyfriends complied, and she sold 3 of the purses for money and kept one of them. All 4 boyfriends are extremely pleased when they see her wearing the "purse he got her."

This story sickens me to the core...


#19 Would Have Been Nice To Know That Before!

I was living with my girlfriend of two years at the time. She was going to go to grad school in a new state. The plan was to switch jobs and move so she could go to grad school. I knew no one in the new state and hadn't been there before.

I secured a job and moved out a few weeks early to find housing. It was then that she decided she wasn't sure what she wanted from the relationship and would cheat. Thus begins the most confusing and frustrating 3-4 months of my life.

#18 Didn't See THAT Coming

We met when we were both young, we hit it off and get together. We move to her homeland, I struggle with a new country, new language, getting a job and all that. A few years into this I find out there is some other guy, we fight, we make up, she promises not to see him again.

I don't want to be a dictator, so when I find out she is still meeting him sometimes for lunch I just try and be cool. On and off, for years, I would worry about this guy, and I would ask her regularly if things between us were cool, and she would make me feel like it was all good.

We move cities, we get a nice apartment, we start planning kids. I ask her to marry me, we have a huge engagement party, a year or two later we have a massive sick wedding. We have a crazy honeymoon. We start to pick dates on starting with a kid. We have a kid. A week ago I see yet another text from this dude, and I just snap.

I go into uber detective mode, start cross-examining her, I pick out some details, I isolate her best friend and start getting stuff out of her. My crazy wife lies every darn minute, denying details, swearing things to my face, but ten minutes later admitting more stuff. FOR THREE WEEKS. Every night is a nightmare as I try to come to terms with whatever new stuff she just admitted, and in the morning I would ask yet again, 'Is that really it?", and no, there was always more.

In the end, I just go to this guys house and he breaks down and tells me everything. They have been regular hanky panky buddies for seven years. During our engagement, wedding, right up to where we started to go for kids. (DNA test is in the mail). This horrible wife was messing around with him bareback, actually contracted genital warts off him and never thought to mention it. His partner this whole time also had no clue. My terrible wife messed around with him in our own bed when I was away visiting family.

An almost 15-year relationship down the drain. I wouldn't even mind so much but this guy is a big mess.

#17 One Time Is Even Too Many Times

I had a friend whose husband cheated on her during his bachelor party. Apparently, there were two lady dancers who let guys touch them. Like really touch them. Everyone took turns. Then they took the groom into a room and messed around with him. Nobody said a thing to my friend, of course, and the wedding happened a few days later. Since then he has cheated on her many times and she stays with him because when she confronts him about things she finds out about he cries and "is really sorry." I had to stop being friends with her.


#16 Are You Kidding Me?

My fiancee had an affair. I took her back. Found a way to forgive.

THEN, she broke up with me.

"You didn't get mad enough," she explained.


#15 Too Soon?

My boss, an enthusiastic outdoorsman, and very gentle fellow comes to work one day with a black eye and puffy face. I ask him what happened, he explains that there was a fist fight at the annual general meeting of his Hunt.

Apparently, there was a member who had recently split from his wife. They had just married and had had their first child. Unfortunately for their marriage, the child was born Chinese. Both husband and wife in this instance being Caucasian. This chap didn't discover this until the child was born, whereupon his wife confessed to committing an act of desperate passion on the floor of a Chinese chip shop with one of the staff during her hen night (bachelorette).

My boss was injured in the fracas that erupted after one of the members of the Hunt decided that four months after the fact was long enough and that he could crack a joke about it during his speech to the assembled members of the Hunt.

He claimed afterward that George had no sense of humor.


#14 He Did Not Take That Well

I had been dating him for almost a year. Things were getting pretty serious and we had talked about moving in together. On a rare evening where I returned to my own apartment after an ironically awesome date night, I opened up the ol' laptop to find a myspace (hey, this was years ago) message from a girl I'd never met. Long message short, she's been sleeping with my boyfriend under the impression that we had an open relationship. She says that after looking at my myspace page she had a feeling that was not true. She attached some of their email exchanges and it was clearly him. I called him to confront him and after some brief denial, he starts to cry and apologize. I tell him to kindly get lost, throw the phone, and proceed to the kitchen to demolish a bottle of adult beverages.

Fast forward half an hour or so and he shows up. Doesn't knock, just comes in and finds me in the kitchen. He begs and pleads for forgiveness and I'm not hearing it. You could see the crazy eyes switch on at this point. He reaches behind me and grabs a chef's knife out of the block. Starts saying that he can't live without me and that whatever happens to him at this point is on me if I refuse to take him back. I manage to stand my ground and he leaves (with my roommate's knife. She's still upset).

I call the police and while they're taking the report I get a suicide note via text message. I show it to the cop and they go on their way. About an hour later (we're talking 2 am at this point) the cop comes back and says, "we found him. I don't know anything about his condition other than he's alive." Son of a gun had drove into the bay. He ended up fine. Admitted for a few days to the psych ward. Cue craziness and stalking for a while. He finally disappeared from my life for good in an unrelated incident when he was arrested for attempting to pay for hanky-panky with a minor.


#13 Talk About A Rollercoaster Of Emotions

My friend and her boyfriend were engaged. She fell pregnant they got a house together she gave up her dreams of university happily for them both and the child.

Has a miscarriage and finds out that her boyfriend had another girl for the two years they were together. She found out while in the hospital recovering since he wasn't there she found out what he was doing.

She took him back.


#12 Then Why Did You Text Me?!

I went away with the family the day after my boyfriend and I had shared the "I love you" date, he said it first. I wake up the next morning to three texts, one describing his mistake (some random chick at a party), one saying I was too good for him, and the last saying we should see other people.

Flash forward to New Years he calls me and we talk on the phone for hours by the end of it I get under the influence and agree to meet up with him later in the month. We hang out and kind of click back to how we were before. He tells me he's leaving the country in two weeks...

#11 Some People Have No Soul

A girl I'm friends with (who regularly lectures me about how I treat girls) is the worst person in the world for this.

She's pretty, but she craves attention. If her boyfriend isn't giving her maximum attention then she starts looking elsewhere, but she manages to find some way to blame her boyfriend for it.

She was living with a guy I know and apparently their romantic life wasn't great. She was struggling for money a little bit (her own fault though) and he was paying her rent, in the end, I think she owed him close to £1000. She started being romantic with other people, a LOT of other people. Quite often in their bed while she would engineer a fight and ban him from the house for that night. Then she was getting flirty with a member of a band on Twitter, everybody could see this guy basically being cuckolded by his live-in girlfriend, it was horrendous. Obviously, she ended up being romantic with him too.

The worst one, however, was when she organized a local gig and booked a guy who her boyfriend HATED to play. I mean he really despised him. She asked her boyfriend to work on the door and he refused at first, but eventually, he relented and said he would.

While her boyfriend was working on the door, she was romantic this guy in the bathrooms, bareback, as some kind of petty revenge. Awful.


#10 The Entire Time Right Under Her Nose

I got talking to a woman on public transport randomly, just normal polite chit-chat before she turned to me with a grave look and said: "my husband had an affair." I apologized because I didn't really know how else to respond. She told me, of the 12 years they had been married he'd been seeing someone else for 7. They had three kids 17, 13 and 6.

The woman he'd been seeing was his best friend, she was a huge part of their lives. Their oldest son's Godmother and she had Sunday lunch with them all almost every week.

#9 Well, That Got Pretty Complicated

When my dad was about 20, his mom (mum-mum) had a gut feeling my grandpop was cheating on her. She's the sweetest lady that ever existed, so she didn't feel it was right to spy on him to find out. Luckily for her, my mom's mom (Nanny) was perfectly fine with spying on him. So Nanny did some tracking here and there and found out that he had been meeting some lady in the park every few days and getting into her car. So Nanny goes over to my Mum-Mum and picks her up and takes her to the park to show her. They watch my grandpop get out of his car, into the strangers and IT'S ON! They march up to the car to find him eating cake...literally. He was furious they were following him, they had a big blow up, etc.

He had been sleeping with this lady too, but her main purpose was cooking meals for him. That's why they'd been meeting in the park. She'd bring him a plate of food, he'd eat, then go home. They got divorced and years down the road, after I was born, my mom caught my dad being romantic with her brother's wife (my aunt by marriage) only a few months after my uncle had passed away. His excuse? She cooked for him and my mom never wanted to. So now my former aunt is my step-mom, my cousins are now my siblings and it's really tough to explain to people that no incest took place.

My parents have been divorced since I was 3, so it's normal to me now, but yeah...that's my bad cheating story.

#8 This One May Take The Cake

I knew this girl who took the prize home. She gets married to my buddy right after graduating High School. He joins the military, goes off for training, she starts messing around on him with this one guy. Then, she breaks it off with the guy she was messing around with to start messing around some more with his older brother.

My buddy is still getting trained here, making bank all the while (and she's spending it as fast as he can earn it). She stops messing around with the older brother, steps up to their father! Now she's messing around with the father, he talks her into becoming an exotic dancer at the bar he worked at, and she gets up on stage for all of us to see. Some nights, he brought her and other girls home for big romantic times. All the while married to my buddy, who dropped her finally as soon as he came home.

#7 Seems Pretty Counterintuitive?

This happened to a guy I knew in High School. He was married to a girl for several years that ended up needing a kidney transplant. He was a match and gave her one of his kidneys instead of having to wait on the transplant list. Just 3 months after the surgery, she cheated on him and divorced him.


#6 Oh, That's Just Cold

My ex-boyfriend insisted we stay together freshman year of college though I went to a small state school and he went to a school 4000 miles away. I had a good year, though I turned down many attractive and nice guys. When we returned for the summer I saw a text from his friend Hanna pop up on his phone that read "I love you boo, gnight! xoxo" I then read their conversation and realized he'd had a second girlfriend at school for 6 months, but continued to waste my freshman year. He's a jerk.


#5 Oh, To Be Young And In Love

My friend's little brother decided it was time to lose his virginity with his girlfriend when he was 14. For some crazy reason, the way that they decided they would do it is by being romantic with 2 other people at the same time including her best friend. I have no idea why any of them thought this would be a good idea.

Anyway, they all somehow manage to get their hands on some adult beverages and get under the influence. Being 14, none of them can handle it and pretty soon, the girlfriend is being sick out the window while the guy is being physical with her best friend in the same room.

At this point my mate see's that somebody is being sick out the window so goes in to check it out only to see his 14-year-old brother undressed being romantic with some girl from behind.

I have no clue what was going through that boy's head.

#4 A Bit Of Romance Ping Pong

One of my old friend's wife's cheated on him numerous times, one day she said she was leaving him for another man. Turned out the person she was going to leave him for said he was only interested in her for physical romance and didn't want any more to do with her. She then went back to my friend and made him apologize to her so she would get back with him. He did and they are still together. I don't know if she still cheats as I don't speak to them anymore.


#3 The Ultimate Revenge

My old housemate was engaged to a guy and had just taken out a mortgage on a house together. On Christmas Day after eight years of being together, he told her that he didn't love her, and hadn't for six months and was messing around with his secretary. She breaks down, he gets upset at her and tells her to sleep on the coach and then tells her to move out the day after. Two months later he is officially with this other girl and takes her to New York, the planned destination for my housemate's honeymoon.

#2 The Hits Just Kept On Coming

My friend found out her husband cheated on her when she was 6 months pregnant with their third child. She decided to stay with him for the sake of the kids. Less than a year later he admits that it wasn't just that one time and he had been cheating on her throughout the entire relationship (dated 2 years, married for 9). She had an irregular pap smear and discovers he gave her HPV. Her doctor found pre-cancerous cells on her cervix and she had to have it removed and go through radiation treatment.


#1 That's One Way To Celebrate... Cheating?

A friend and I were working one day (it was while I worked at a gas station) and neither of us was that great with customer service, but it was a nice day and we were in good moods. This woman came in and my buddy asked how her day was. Such a mistake.

She told us that she had gotten engaged that morning, and we both congratulated her on that. The story wasn't done though. She said because of that, her boss had let her go home early to celebrate. She came home and found her fiancé doing the deed with her mom.

Only thing I could think to say was "so I guess the wedding is off?"
