Pregnant Wife Sees Best Friend’s Message on Husband’s Phone: ‘You Haven’t Told Her about Us?’

An anonymous Reddit user discovered her husband cheated with her best friend.

The woman was six months pregnant when she learned of the heartbreaking news. Fortunately, her in-laws took her side. An anonymous Reddit user shared a heartbreaking story about her family.

The woman had been dating her husband since she was 19, and he was 22.

They were married for six years with two kids and one on the way. Even though she was excited about expanding her family, she also discovered that her father, the only parent she had left, had been diagnosed with colon cancer.

She hoped her father would beat the cancer but later found out he was not reacting to the treatment and only had months to live. Her husband supported her through this challenging time, watching her father’s health and memory deteriorate. “My husband has been my absolute rock. He has been there for me holding my hand and helping me through this. He’s been so loving and attentive to both my kids and me,” wrote the Reddit user.

Despite how difficult things had been for her, the mother of three reiterated that she did not let any of her hardships get in between her and her children. She was still a present mother and gave her children all the attention they needed.

The original poster (OP) was also a great wife and did not slack in any of the work she usually did around the house.In addition to her husband, the anonymous Reddit user also had the support of her childhood best friend. ”My best friend and I have been friends since diapers. Her family is like my family and vice versa,” she explained. So, it was no surprise that her best friend was her shoulder to cry on during her father’s cancer battle. However, something happened that turned their lives upside down.

What Discovery Did OP Make That Changed Her Marriage?

One morning, OP was up with her sick three-year-old when one of her husband’s alarms went off. He usually set a few of them before waking up and she took the liberty to switch it off. When she leaned over the phone, she saw a text from her best friend that read,

“I’m assuming since there hasn’t been an angry pregnant lady on my doorstep, you haven’t told her about us yet?”

She could not believe her eyes, but she wanted to get to the bottom of it, so she took his phone to read their conversations and found out her husband had been cheating with her childhood best friend for four months. The OP decided to handle the situation in the best way she knew how.

Processing the Dreadful Infidelity

Unlike some people who would know exactly what to do in such a situation, the anonymous Reddit writer confessed that she did not know a way forward. For the first couple of days after finding out, she pretended nothing happened. She continued to be a supportive wife, asking her husband about his day.

OP also kept her children from suspecting anything. But what was more confusing was how both her husband and best friend never displayed any signs of affection or gave her a reason to suspect they were having an affair.

Amid this emotional turmoil, the mother could not wrap her head around losing her father and watching her family fall apart. She postponed telling her husband to at least live through one peaceful day before it all came crashing down.

As for her best friend, she vowed never to speak to her again and did not even care to hear the reason behind her betrayal. “After today, I will cut her out of my life like she never mattered at all,” she resolved.

The mother of three received a lot of support from commenters. One Reddit user commended her for staying strong but emphasized that they would not advise her to stay and try to work things out with her husband.

Breaking the News to Her Family

Soon after, the anonymous Reddit user gave her readers an update. She revealed that she broke the news to her mother-in-law and her ex-best friend’s mother. Without trying to explain the story, she just handed out screenshots of the conversation between her husband and ex-best friend.

Shocked by what they learned, her in-laws and her ex-best friend’s family immediately took her side and apologized profusely as they hugged and cried together. Her mother-in-law was so furious that she was ready to write her son off. In fact, the OP revealed her mother-in-law assured her saying:

“That no matter what happens, I will always have her, and as far as she’s concerned, she doesn’t have a son, only a daughter.”

Even though she’d been skeptical about leaving her husband, OP contacted a lawyer and started drafting her divorce settlement. She said she got a good attorney who was ready to fight for her. The lawyer clarified that her husband would not get her father’s inheritance.

The OP has yet to confront her husband about everything but wants to focus on starting a new chapter with her children. Everyone in the comments also praised the woman’s in-laws for being supportive and taking her side.

Most were in awe of how well the Reddit user handled such a painful situation. One of the commenters wrote:

“The fact that you have the unequivocal support of the families of the people who betrayed you is touching. Often families side with the betrayer if they are family and not the betrayed. Morality is one of the rare things that can trump family.”

Those glued to the story are patiently waiting for her to come back with an update on how her husband reacted to her confrontation. The OP returned with another jaw-dropping update about what happened when she spoke to her husband.

What Happened to Op’s Marriage and Life When Her Husband Was Confronted about the Infidelity?

OP came back with an update to her story starting off by revealing that she got tested and came out safe for all types of STDs/STIs. She got all the financial documents and wills from her parents and in-laws to ensure she’d be covered in case of a divorce.

The OP’s mother-in-law and her ex-best friend’s mother intervened by having a showing of the cheating pair’s slide show of texts. The Redditor’s cheating husband responded to the screening by trying to attack his mistress, who cried and apologized to her parents.

OP’s husband was livid when he arrived home and found out that his wife had taken hers and the children’s things and moved out. He lashed out by going to look for his wife at her father’s place and ended up getting arrested for bashing the front door with a baseball bat.

The Redditor refused to settle and stay with her husband because of the incredible example set by her parents on how one can be faithful in their marriage. Besides her in-laws, OP also had the support and help from her ex-best friend’s brother, Jake.

He and OP played a video game and he confessed to having feelings for her since his teenage years. A month later, OP revealed that her father died a week after her previous update. She and her husband got a dissolution of marriage instead of a divorce because it was quicker.

OP’s ex-husband got weekly supervised visits with his children and was in therapy and anger management. Her new baby arrived and was named after her father. OP barred her ex-husband from being in the room when she delivered and he wasn’t pleased.

She and Jake weren’t rushing into anything and he was patient about it, but also remained supportive. When Jake returned from the army under early retirement, he’d stay with OP while trying to find his own place.
