An unnamed woman from Florida (because it's always Florida) could be facing serious criminal charges for outing her cheating husband's bad behavior.
Yeah, you read that right. Here's what went down:
The woman needed her babysitter's number and grabbed her husband's phone to get it. Why she didn't have the babysitter's info herself is beyond me and beside the point, so moving on.
Once she was inside her guy's phone, she made the giant mistake of casually looking at his text messages.
Why? Why? Women of the world, if you feel like you have to sneak around and read your boyfriend's texts it's probably because you don't trust him.
And if you don't trust him, the chances are high you'll find something you don't want to find, something like cheating!
That, my friends, is exactly what happened here. In the blink of an eye she was confronted with VERY GRAPHIC photos of her hubby cheating on her.
Also, why on earth do people save their sexts!? I mean, isn't this what Snapchat was made for? (I'll be real, I am old and thus do not even remotely understand Snapchat. But there are a lot of people who might look into learning how to use it.)
It turns out her husband was having an affair with a waitress from Applebee's.
Talk about eating good in the neighborhood.
To add insult to injury? The waitress is nineteen years her husband's junior. Ouch, ouch, and triple ouch.
But I do think we should stop and think about what we would do if we found sexts in your significant other's phone that proved he was cheating.
I would probably dissolve into a ball of sentient goo on the floor.
But not this lady.
She was pissed and out for revenge. And what better way to get it than by posting the sexts her cheating husband left behind on Facebook for the world to see?
Well this woman actually took it a step further. SHE TAGGED THE DUDE'S FAMILY ON THE POST.
I love me some righteous indignation but I'll be real, I don't know if I could burn my familial bridges with such merry abandon.
By the same token, if some enraged ex tagged me on photos of a relative cheating I'd be more likely to think that they had a screw loose rather than focus on the fact that my relative was a total dog.
Clearly she was really hurting. And who can blame her? That's totally shocking and awful to have to go through. Suffice to say their marriage is over, and the husband in question is actually still dating his sexting partner.
But this wife is far from being able to move on. Turns out, she could now be brought up on criminal charges, and this is where you might start thinking twice about what you might do if you were in her situation.
Turns out that technically, revealing the graphic pictures of her husband's sexual encounters with his paramour can be classified as "revenge porn", illegal in the state of Florida.
If her husband feels so moved he can have her prosecuted, which could have devastating effects on any custody agreements they negotiate in the future.
It doesn't seem fair that her act of pure, inspired rage could end up costing her her children.
That said, revenge porn can have devastating effects on the people featured. If a man did this to a woman, I'd be outraged ... so I guess keeping some perspective here is key.
But most of all, I think we can all learn from her situation (and his).
