Ending a relationship is no mean feat. Whether one is the architect of a relationship's ending, or on the receiving end of a devastating rejection, there really is no easy way to call it quits. The notion of remaining friends after such turbulence is frankly laughable to many, in the aftermath of bitter recriminations and strident blame games that have no decisive winner.
Of course, there are those rare and precious moments in which both parties agree that, all things considered, it would be better to part ways amicably, though for every such occasion there is the more sinister and damaging break up; when one of the pair has been cheated on by the other.
Cheating is a regrettable aspect of love, but it does occur with saddening regularity. Here, then, are some of the most toe-curling and cringeworthy stories of cheaters getting caught out there. Buckle up.
1. Taking "love thy neighbour" a little too literally
2. Leave with your held held high, and a whiteboard marker in your hand
3. Take the beer and run
4. This guy did everything he could to get caught
5. Maybe she was making balloons for your birthday?
