The saying ‘hell has no fury like a woman scorned’ could not be more on point for this wife.

After discovering her husband had been cheating on her, she decided to tell her entire neighbourhood by way of putting flyers on lamp posts around the family’s suburb in the US.

The posters display (what was presumed to be at the time) a happy family portrait with a big red circle around her hubby’s face as he lovingly has an arm around both his wife and son.

Below the photo was the following: “Abandoned his wife and kids in NY to … [be with] MILFs (and for crappy government job!).

“Some neighbour you have! He’s still married and living with another woman,” it continued.

“Police: Please cite him for Adultery – Class 4 misdemeanour according to Virginia Code 18.2-365.”

WHO IS IN THE WRONG?

The poster quickly attracted attention after being shared on Reddit where it caused a divide.

Although some people really felt for the enraged wife, most were incredulous that she put up a photo of her poor innocent children.

“I would never do this either way, but I can’t understand why she didn’t just do a giant headshot of him. I understand she wants to emphasise the abandonment of his family component, but I feel like the words would have been enough,” one said.

Another stated that the wife’s behaviour was as unforgivable as her partner’s adultery.

“Why would she put the kids’ pictures on the flyers?! Do that to this scumbag if you wish. Considering the children’s pics are on here, I’m sure they have already been put thru hell by their parents. I get it, a lover scorned, but the kids? Really? They are both pieces of trash.”

While someone else echoed the exact same point.

“Now you have kids with dirty laundry aired to the public. It’s hard enough to have one person leaving your family and the dynamic changing. It’s worse when you have one parent actively making it even more of a hell on kids that didn’t do anything.

“Imagine how difficult school ought to be knowing they know your family drama? Or the act that your parent put revenge above your mental wellbeing? Dude is an asshole, but the person that made the flyer isn’t less of one either.”

‘SHE’LL REGRET IT LATER…’

The impact on the kids from airing the family’s dirty laundry continued to be a big issue with most commenters.

“I feel sorry for the kids. Dad abandons them, mum is just weird and hysterical and can’t let them mourn the loss of their father in private,” said one.

“You’re making collateral damage that could’ve been dealt with better. You’re broadcasting to the entire town, with the kids involved, that he cheated,” said another.

However, there were some empathetic people who could see the vengeful wife’s side of things.

“She’ll regret it later but she must’ve been filled with absolute rage,” one said.

“He was probably lying to her 24/7 and maintaining his persona as loving dad etc. It’s so humiliating for the betrayed spouse.”
