TikToker @living_with_sj recently asked fellow TikTokers “how they found out their ex-spouse was cheating” — and she shared her own story as well.
“Mine was working out of the country. One time, when he came back for some R&R, which was supposed to be two weeks, he was acting super weird,” she says in the video.
“So, he ends up leaving a week early, and then sends me a text saying, ‘Hey, I don’t want to talk to you for an entire week. I’m not gonna answer your phone calls because I wanna make sure that marriage is something I really want.'”
“[He] completely ghosted, and I even tried to look on the credit card, but the password was changed. So then, I called the number on the back of the card, and since I’m an authorized user, they told me the recent charges, which were hotels, bars, restaurants…”
“I messaged him saying, ‘Hey, I know what you’re doing,’ and he said, ‘When I come back, I’ll decide if we stay married.’ And I said, ‘That’s not how this works. We’re getting a divorce.'”
SJ’s TikTok went viral and she uploaded a follow-up video about her life after divorce.
The comments were full of people sharing their own cheating spouse stories:
“Mine started coming home super late after work and started ignoring my calls. Five months passed, and he came home with a mark on his neck. I said bye!” —maribelgarcia355
