    'My husband of 34 years cheated on me with a teenager - I found the proof on his phone'

    By Chanelle Georgina & Emily Hodgkin,


    Carol, a woman married for 34 years, has discovered the heartbreaking fact that her husband has been having an affair with a teenager .

    She shared her heartbreak on Reddit, revealing: "My husband of 34 years (age 58) cheated on me with an 18-year-old ."

    She described their marriage as perfect , saying: "Me and my husband have had a perfect marriage for the past 34 years... we have four daughters together who have all become successful and had kids of their own, [except from] our youngest, Annie."

    Annie, still living at home, often invites friends over for the weekend. Carol explained: "Annie has a best friend named Bailey, who is almost always at our house," adding that "Bailey has formed a very good relationship with my husband and I; she comes to church with us most Sunday mornings, and often comes to family gatherings."

    However, Carol noticed something amiss: "About a month ago, I started realising Bailey and my husband would often watch movies together on the weekends after Annie fell asleep."

    Initially dismissing it, she grew increasingly uncomfortable: "I didn't think much of it in the beginning but grew more uncomfortable with it as it continued almost every weekend for over a month."

    Suspecting something was off, Carol did the unthinkable she snooped on Tony's phone. Defending her actions, she said: "I know it's an invasion of privacy but a woman's intuition is never wrong."

    What she found confirmed her worst fears: "I found a contact with Bailey's name and clicked on the messages... I saw a message from my husband that read, 'I can't wait to do it again next weekend' with a winking emoji."

    Bailey messaged: "I can't wait till you're out of that place and we can do it every day."

    Carol felt sick as she pondered her next move, admitting: "I haven't said anything to my husband or daughter about this yet," and confessed, "I don't want to jump to conclusions... I want to confront my husband... what should I do? "

    Carol also disclosed: "Annie informed me of a situation Bailey had with another one of my daughter's friend's dad."

    She recounted how Bailey would isolate him and badmouth his wife in an attempt to seduce him.

    A Reddit user described Bailey as someone with "daddy issues" and a "low moral compass", while calling Carol's husband a "fool" who "should be ashamed of himself... disgusting".

    Another Redditor suggested: "Save all evidence and speak to an attorney... protect yourself, divide any money you have and put it in a separate account."

    One commenter pointed out: "Your husband already ruined your marriage. He threw away 34 years of marriage, a wife and his four daughters for an 18-year-old who won't be around next year."

    Echoing the sentiment, someone else remarked: "Your husband ruined the marriage. And he ruined it for nothing, as he has to know that there is no future with her."
