Scorned Wife Goes Off on Husband’s Mistress in Craigslist Rant for the Ages
What's the secret to making a marriage last? Apparently, it may finding someone else to satisfy your needs.
A woman in Syracuse, NY wrote a scathing letter "To the Woman Dating My Husband" on Craigslist because if there's anything that can save a blessed union from a man with a philandering eye it's unloading all the dirty laundry in the same place you can find a used toaster.
It's a long missive with some wonderful passages:
I think you left some clothes here too. I threw them away. You also left a bra. You're size 36 B. I'm a 34C. The bra stank with BO. (Of course, it maybe that it belongs to someone else..... After all, his dating profiles --OurTime.com and Match.com--showed that he was horn-doggin' over a 120 mile radius... )
So he announced we're getting a divorce after I confronted him. He's playing "victim," and telling me it's a BIG misunderstanding, and that I'm being "controlling." I've pointed out that NO woman would agree my behavior is "controlling" after finding her husband's dating profiles which say he's "looking for marriage" to someone else... Unless your version of "controlling" includes an inability to understand I'm upset about the sub-text of "Why can't I go off and search for my next wife?" or "Why can't I just get laid behind your back?"...
Well, recently he's lost weight, quit drinking (that was 15 years of h*ll for me and the kids) bought himself a NEW truck (without consulting / asking me). But guess what? That nice house and property you saw, and new truck, and all his new tools? ***I OWN HALF OF ALL OF IT***....
My advice: Don't marry him. If you do, then HALF OF YOUR STUFF IS HIS! He'll use you up, he's a selfish lover, he's a spend-a-holic, and it's likely he'll revert to booze. His financial decisions will drive you into bankruptcy. (He's done it twice) His family will hate you (they're weird, you'll see), and he has a tendency to do incredibly stupid stuff...
GOOD LUCK WITH HIM! THE PACKAGING IS DAMAGED AND WHAT'S INSIDE IS PRETTY SPENT, TOO!"
The wife and her soon-to-be ex-husband have children, who cannot possibly be embarrassed whatsoever that their mother unloaded in such a public forum, right?
Is it us or do you also get the feeling this couple is destined to become embroiled in a lawsuit over something silly like who gets custody of their rakes in a case that winds up being heard on Judge Mathis?
