One day, a woman was scrolling through TikTok when she recognized her husband’s back in a video. After going through many other videos on the account, she made a shocking and heartbreaking discovery.
A Reddit user asked others on the platform how she should handle her situation after scrolling through social media and finding her husband in another woman’s videos.
The wife eventually found out that her husband had been in a committed relationship with the woman for a couple of years and discovered they were planning to have a baby together. She was heartbroken and confused.
The woman had been holding onto the information for two weeks, unable to decide what she should do next. When she posted on Reddit asking for advice, she still had no idea how to proceed.
How Did the Wife Discover Her Husband’s Infidelity?
A week before posting, the woman was scrolling through TikTok when she found an account of a woman sharing recipes. As she watched, she noticed that the man in the background of the videos looked very much like her husband.
At first, the wife noticed the man’s back and said she recognized every inch of her husband, so she knew it was him immediately. Then she went through many other videos on the page to confirm it was her husband and watched him while he was at home with her.
The wife observed her husband acting normally but found that he had become an expert at hiding his mistress from her. She also realized that each time her husband went on a work trip, the other woman would post a TikTok video saying she was trying a new recipe because her man was coming home from a work trip.
As the wife watched the other woman’s videos dishing up food for her husband, she recognized his hands and the “peculiar” way he held his cutlery. She couldn’t believe her husband had kept the charade up for three years.
Before discovering the affair, the wife and her husband had an excellent relationship. They had been married for over two decades and had a healthy physical relationship. They share two children and overcame the death of their son ten years earlier, which the woman felt brought them closer.
“I don’t know how he found the time to start an entire relationship on the side. I thought we were happy,” the wife wrote, reflecting on her relationship with her husband of 21 years,
Although she sought advice from others on social media, she said she was spaced out. She had nearly burned her kitchen because she forgot she was cooking as she thought about the situation and how her husband had kept a “second family” from her.
How Did the Wife Get Her Revenge?
The wife received many responses to her post, some with advice and others commiserating with her. Later, she updated all those who were interested in her dilemma on what she decided to do.
First, she hired a divorce lawyer who advised her not to tell her husband that she knew about his infidelity first. When it was okay to tell him, she confronted her husband, who denied everything, even after she had shown him the social media posts and pictures taken by an investigator. He even accused the woman of being insane.
But after many hours of showing her husband the evidence she had gathered, he finally confessed to everything. He begged for her forgiveness, but she was unwilling to forgive him. Instead, she went to meet her husband’s mistress.
When she arrived at his mistress’ home, the woman told her that her husband loved her and had paid for almost everything she had. With this, the wife found an upper hand. She knew she was entitled to half of everything her husband owned, including everything he bought for his mistress.

With this newfound knowledge, the wife knew she could get her revenge. “Now I know for certain that [neither] he nor she deserve an ounce of my sympathy, and I will take back everything he ever gave her and much more!” she vowed.
