Man tells the whole story of discovering his wife was cheating on Reddit and it's tragic

Finding out the spouse you loved and trusted with all your heart was actually cheating on you is easily one of the worst things any person can go through. For one redditor, it was so bad to find out his wife "Jenny" was cheating after he read her texts that he decided to share the whole story. And what a story it is.

The thread is long. Like 10,000 words. And it details with incredible precision, the horrible experience this man had of going through learning his wife was cheating after seeing her texts, hiring a private investigator and then spending days unable to tell her he knew while he was gathering evidence. All of this played out over the weekend on Reddit. The full thread is long, heartbreaking and riveting.

Some excerpts:

I decided to open up the phone and reply something stupid and funny in order to embarrass Jenny. So I opened up the iMessage app and went to read their previous conversation to see what was happening, so I could tell a relevant joke. 2nd to the top of the list of conversations was a chat with a guy/girl named Zack. I didn’t know who Zack was, but the most recent thing he sent her was “

To my horror, there was sexually explicit talk of what he wanted to do to Jenny when she “crawled up next to his sack.” What a filthy beast. I scroll up, and there are multiple nudes from both of them waiting for me to discover. Most of them are dated sometime between 1-4am (usually I’m sleeping then, smart.) so I knew she was obviously trying to hide it from me.

I realized my wife is cheating on me. I took a moment to realize that this was the end of our marriage. All of our happy times, our foreign trips, and our romantic nights must have meant nothing to her. I put the phone down and went to the bathroom to freshen up while Jenny was still sleeping.

Heartbreaking, right? I mean who does this to a person they are supposed to love and cherish? It's beyond cruel. And then more:

Just my lucky day. Zack was dropped off at his flathouse and Jenny got out of the car followed him up the driveway. In plain sight, they passionately made out/kissed for 10-15 seconds, like a farewell kiss. Jenny then went back to the car and is driving again. That's enough proof for my case. I've got:

  • Nudes
  • Sexually suggestive texts
  • Sexual texts
  • Video and picture proof of them kissing and hanging out together.

Feels good that I now have more than enough proof. I'm devastated about what I've discovered. Hats off to the PI.

It's just horrible.

Of course, there is also the question of whether this helps or not. And it's a good one. With so much at stake and so much pain, it seems like he may have been happier if he'd just not read her texts. Or maybe not put it on Reddit. But then who are we to judge? If this was cathartic for him to have an audience, then he has every right to do that.

If you are going to cheat, hide your evidence better, stupid people. Better yet, don't cheat. It's not worth it. Someone's heart will always get broken.
