One wife picked up her husband’s phone and noticed the Tinder dating app logo appear as a notification. She realized her husband was using the online dating matchmaker to cheat on her.
The scorned wife made a few changes to his profile to let the world know exactly who he really was. The husband was identified as a man named 29-year-old Mike.
Not only were the profile photos changed to less flattering ones, but his brief biography was rewritten to be less than flattering.
The bio read: “Hey my name is mike I’m married with two kids. I have a tiny [bleep] that is STI infested. My wife found my profile if you can’t tell and I don’t know yet that she’s talking on the phone right now with one of my girls and is leaving me.”
While the mother and children have remained anonymous, clearly the cheating husband did not fare as well.
The panel on The Doctors discussed the fed-up wife’s choice to publicly shame her unfaithful husband, and the verdict was a bit split. Dr. Travis brings up the point that the kids might find the story online and think poorly of their father.
Another panelist suggests that when someone is hurt so badly, it is understandable to want payback. Mike isn’t going to jail and remains unharmed; the only thing that will suffer is his ego and reputation.
Dr. Travis does end the discussion with any important point: infidelity doesn’t just hurt your partner emotionally, it puts both the cheater and the victim at a great risk to contract sexually transmitted diseases and infections.
