Finding out that your significant other is cheating on you is hard.
Finding out that your significant other has a second spouse is even harder.
Finding out that your significant other has a second spouse when you see their wedding photos on Facebook? That's a whole 'nother level of hard.
WKYC has the story of a woman who they call "Megan" who went through just such an ordeal.
The Cleveland woman's husband was a businessman who traveled often, so at first she didn't think much of his frequent absences. She became suspicious eventually, especially after her family pointed her towards the Facebook page of a woman who seemed to be spending plenty of personal time with her man. Of course, what happened in Vegas or China or wherever the hell he was flying to didn't stay there, not when his mistress was posting pictures and updates of her time with him.
The real kicker for the Cleveland woman was when she logged on recently and saw photos from her husband's wedding with his second wife. Here's what "Megan" had to say:
"It's rubbing that salt into the wound of already finding out that my husband's having an affair," Megan said. "The pictures are out there for the world to see. It's not just that I have the knowledge, but I see the proof and everyone I know sees the proof and people I don't know see the proof."
"If they're going to have the affair, they're going to have the affair," she said. "But it's extra. It adds impact to the hurt, when they're posting the things they post about the affair. Pictures of the vacations they're taking with the other, the lover, the extra person. (Facebook posts) just cause a whole new hurt."
See, guys. If you're going to have an affair, you're going to have an affair. Just don't post the pictures of your second wife on Facebook. That's when the first wife tends to get upset.
