But no matter how much we claim to hate the very notion of cheating, so many of us do it! A recent 2017 study found that 22% of men have confessed to cheating on their significant other, compared to 14% of women. In fact, people who do cheat are 350% more likely to do it again!
And although many of us condemn cheaters and even claim to have had our heart broken by infidelity – we do kinda love it when it happens to others, don’t we? So many of our favorite TV shows reel us in with storylines surrounding cheating, and we can’t get enough of talk shows where people confront their cheating spouses and then beat them up when they fail the lie detector test (here’s looking at you Maury).
In fact, I have a confession to make. One of my favorite YouTube channels is To Catch A Cheater. I just get such a buzz off watching slimy cheaters getting caught out. Call me a sadist, I really don’t care. But there are also so many other complications with cheating, such as what counts as being unfaithful. One person may see no harm in a few flirty text messages, but their partner may consider that being unfaithful.
What about if a married man was secretly having a drink at a bar with another woman? Well, this wife clearly thought that was all the evidence she needed to go on an all-out assault. Granted, we don’t know the full history of this explosive love-triangle, but this surveillance footage from the entrance of a Brazilian bar shows the moment a furious woman confronted a man, believed to be her husband, and a lady he is sitting with, whom she suspects he is cheating with.
She starts by slapping her alleged husband across the back of the head, before dishing out a swift right hand to his apparent mistress. She then proceeds to start pulling the hair of “other woman”, ignited a fierce brawl that spills out onto the streets. Now, like I confessed, it’s very entertaining to see people get their just desserts, but what the husband did next is completely out of line and unforgivable. Check out the video below: After the brawl spills out onto the nearby road, the husband starts to physically retaliate against his former flame, punching her in the face several times, and slamming her to the floor. Yes, the woman should not have used violence when confronting her cheating spouse, but physical retaliation is never the answer. Very often, people can find forgiveness for their cheating partners, but NOBODY should ever forgive physical abuse from a so-called “loved one”. This goes for both the woman and the man – they just seem too volatile to ever survive in a relationship.
Although the initial explosion of a cheater getting caught may be entertaining to some, it’s always devastating to see a relationship crumble from infidelity. This is only intensified if that relationship was a long marriage with children involved. Sadly, that’s exactly what happened to this next man. After suspecting his wife of over 10 years was being unfaithful, he used his DRONE to follow her every step, eventually catching her Then again, a fully grown man with such advanced drone skills surely can’t be a desirable husband and lover…
