Insecurity and jealousy can make otherwise normal people sometimes do inadvisable, bad things. Like, you might even find yourself tempted to snoop through your partner's personal belongings, phone, or emails. But hopefully, you never actually go through with it. This woman's jealousy drove her to do something truly unconscionable, and then she went on Reddit asking for advice.
Twitter user @ajlobster tweeted screengrabs of the woman's post on Reddit, and wrote, "This might be the most monstrous thing I've read on r/relationships and that is saying A LOT."
And she's not exaggerating, either.
So, the woman falls in love with a widower and they get involved. The only hitch, a far as the woman is concerned, is that his first wife died, but the man didn't completely erase her from his life. There were pictures of her hanging up, and friends and the daughter talked about her fondly quite a bit. This was, understandably, rough for her. But what happens next, as they say, will surprise you.
After moving into a new home, the woman threw away ALL the pictures her then-fiance had of his first wife. She even deleted pictures from his computer. She also donated and/or threw away all of his first wife's possessions. He didn't notice for two years, but when the guy's mother asked for pictures of his daughter for a high school graduation ceremony she was putting together, the jig was up.
So not only are the pictures of the first wife long gone, so are some of her possessions that had a lot of personal value to both the man and his daughter. The poster's husband is now so angry at her that he can barely look at her. He won't sleep in the same room with her, and he's also refusing couples' counseling. Oh, and did we mention she's (apparently) 13 weeks pregnant?
This woman posted her story on Reddit looking for help, but has since deleted it. However, once the story was out there, and after it was posted on Twitter, people couldn't help but agree that what she did was just pretty damn selfish and cruel.
The comments over on Reddit are about the same.
Hopefully he can forgive her, but it's going to take a lot of work, because WOW.
