After Husband Left A Note Saying He Left Her For Her Sister, This Wife Got Revenge
Laur’s husband left her in an unexpected way. But she had some big news of her own…
Laura And Jack
Laura assumed that her marriage was fine. But this idea was shattered when she came home to find a letter from her husband, Jack. While Jack had assumed that he did what was best, leaving her for her sister, he had no idea what had happened while he was drafting his letter. Laura threw him a curveball. What was the revenge that had changed their lives?
Reading the letter from her husband, Laura struggled to keep her composure, all she could do was think to herself, “And that’s an end to seven long years of marriage.” It was shocking to read the words. Jack started the letter off with: “Dear wife: I’m writing you this letter to tell you that I’m leaving you forever.” This final statement of terms seemed drastic and completely out of the blue. Laura had no idea that this was how Jack felt.
Before arriving home, Laura was ecstatic, she had received amazing news that day and wanted to share it with her husband, but instead, she was surprised by his bitter confession that involved jilting her for her sister. Jack’s letter continued with “I’ve been a good man to you for seven years & I have nothing to show for it. These last two weeks have been hell. Your boss called to tell me that you quit your job today & that was the last straw.”
At this stage, it was too late for Jack, and he didn’t want to sort things out between them.”Last week, you came home & didn’t even notice I had a new haircut, had cooked your favorite meal & even wore a brand new pair of silk boxers. You ate in 2 minutes, & went straight to sleep after watching all of your soaps. You don’t tell me you love me anymore; you don’t want anything that connects us as husband & wife.”
He signed the letter off with: “Either you’re cheating on me or you don’t love me anymore; whatever! The case, I’m gone. Your EX-Husband P.S. don’t try to find me. Your SISTER & I are moving away to West Virginia together! Have a great life!” Despite the good day that Laura was having, this letter of betrayal deeply hurt her, as not only was her husband of seven years leaving her, but he was taking her sister with him.
This letter came at the most perfectly timed moment. If it had come a day later, Laura wouldn’t have known on that fateful day Jack’s true feelings and that he was cheating on her with her sister. Laura had just received the amazing news that she had won the lottery! Despite her husband’s awful letter, she was in high spirits knowing that even though she would be losing her husband, she was one of those lucky winners who struck it big time.
Laura and Jack were in college when they first met each other. Neither of them had that special kind of connection at the start, they did not realize while they were studying together for examinations, but spending time together in the library made them a valuable part of each other’s lives. Jack eventually dropped out of college and started working as a bartender. They didn’t realize that not all love stories are meant to last a lifetime…
These two came from different backgrounds. Laura belonged to a privileged family while Jack was working as a part-time bartender and didn’t have any ambitions besides that. Laura’s parents were strictly against their daughter, marrying Jack. From the start, they never approved of their union, as they wanted her to have a better life than Jack could provide. But it was too late; she was already so in love with Jack that she did not care about anything else.
Laura In Love
As far Jack was concerned, Laura felt that his love was enough. She was stubborn and wouldn’t let go of Jack. When her parents did not approve of their relationship, they knew best, but sometimes when our parents pressure us too much, we feel the need to exert our independence even more. Laura was in love, and so she decided to move in with her partner. Nevertheless, seven years later, the only regret she had was not listening to her parents.
Upon completing graduation, Laura moved to Jack’s one-bedroom apartment. He was used to it, but it was small and dingy, the heater never worked, the paint on the walls was faded, and in short, the place wasn’t well maintained. But Laura was hopeful, she found the experience as adventurous as she had never lived with her boyfriend before, so this was all a new and exciting chapter for her, especially as she loved Jack so much.
Now It Was Over
Now when Laura looked back at the start of their relationship, it was painful for her. She felt that she deserved better; after all, they were together for seven years. He could’ve at least discussed it with her in person, she thought, but it was over now. Laura still wanted to share the good news of her lottery win with Jack, but only to let him know what a huge mistake he had made. As the couple always lived in financial crisis, Laura tried her hand at lottery tickets…
This could have been one of those love stories where two people have to overcome certain obstacles in order to be together and have their happy ending. But over time, their marriage started to fall apart. Like a beautiful sunset, it was spectacular while it lasted, but eventually, it came to an end. This is about compatibility and both adjusting to the normal personal changes that come with aging and life experiences; sometimes it is about the everyday life in the relationship.
Before all this, Jack was everything to Laura; she just wanted to be with him even if that meant he couldn’t provide the life that she was used to. Since their lives began together, they were tight with money, so she offered to help him financially by working as a waitress in a restaurant near to their apartment. There she started earning reasonable tips that helped the duo live decently. However, once a few years had passed, Laura started feeling suspicious…
Happy With Jack
Laura would often visit Jack at his place of work, the bar where he was the bartender. She did so to spend some time with him, but soon enough, some clues could mean he might be cheating on her. People at the bar gave her strange stares, and she didn’t want to believe her suspicions, so she shook off the feeling and would visit Jack less and less at work. She was still happy with Jack, but later she would learn that the misgivings she had before were more than just a feeling…
Winning The Lottery
After several failed attempts at the lottery, Laura kept trying until finally, she won one. She was incredibly excited and happy, as we can imagine. She instantly booked two tickets for Hawaii so that the couple could celebrate the win there. Now after seeing his letter, she didn’t want to travel with Jack, she wanted to make sure that he knew he was not getting one cent of the lottery money, and she didn’t want him back.
The Lucky Draw
Despite being sad and upset about her husband’s letter, her feelings were mixed with incredible happiness at winning the lottery! What was she going to do with her prize money? Should she travel or buy a yacht? Maybe she should buy a big house and a fancy car? It all felt a bit overwhelming, the letter and the winning lottery ticket were a lot to process right now, but the first thing she wanted to do was write a letter in response to Jack.
Writing Her Letter
Laura was reeling with all kinds of feelings – happy she won the lottery, sad Jack was leaving, and angry after all the years they spent together. Now she was eager to break the news to Jack, so she started writing her letter in response: “Dear Ex-Husband, Nothing has made my day more than receiving your letter. It’s true you & I have been married for seven years, although a good man is a far cry from what you’ve been,” the letter began…
Confused With My Sister
Her letter continued, “I watch my soaps so much because they drown out your constant whining & griping. Too bad that doesn’t work. I DID notice when you got a hair cut last week, but the 1st thing that came to mind was ‘You don’t look good!’ Since my mother raised me not to say anything if you can’t say something nice, I didn’t comment. And when you cooked my favorite meal, you must have gotten me confused with MY SISTER, because I stopped eating pork seven years ago.” But she had even more to say…
The Truth About Jack
“About those new silk boxers: I turned away from you because the $49.99 price tag was still on them, & I prayed it was a coincidence that my sister had just borrowed $50 from me that morning. After all of this, I still loved you & felt we could work it out.” It would seem that those suspicions she had about Jack being unfaithful were real, she didn’t want to believe it then, but after reading his letter that he was leaving with her sister, she realized the truth.
Her Lottery Win
To clear Jack’s assumptions, Laura further told him that the only reason she had quit her job was that they had won a lottery for 15 million dollars. To her, spending quality time with him was more important than crunching her head at work. But after reading Jack’s letter, the tables had turned: “So when I hit the lotto for $15 Million, I quit my job & bought us two tickets to Hawaii, but when I got home you were gone. Everything happens for a reason, I guess. I hope you have the fulfilling life you always wanted.”
Laura was struggling with feelings of betrayal and rejection; she had to deal with these feelings first before she could think about how she should spend the lottery winnings. She had to do some research about how much money he will get, seeing as he is her husband. So she called her lawyer and told him everything, including about the hand-written letter she found from her husband. Her lawyer was very helpful and explained to her how it works…
Carla Was Carl
“My lawyer said that the letter you wrote ensures you won’t get a dime from me. So take care. Signed, Your Ex-Wife, Rich As Hell & Free! P.S. I don’t know if I ever told you this, but my sister Carla was born Carl. I hope that’s not a problem.” Laura sure knows how to break the news! We can’t say for sure if that is true or if she made it up just for laughs, but it sure is a funny way to end a letter.
Little Did She Know
Just the thrill of winning the lottery excited Laura. She never knew she would win, but she still kept trying. After everything turned out the way it did between her and Jack, Laura was incredibly lucky. What a fateful day it was – not only did she win the lottery worth $15 million, but she also discovered as she went home to surprise her husband, that he had news of his own, leaving her with her sister.
Tickets To Hawaii
This response from Laura after Jack’s decision to flee with her younger sister was probably the last thing he could have expected. And it was the best revenge that Laura could have ever taken. Telling Jack that he had fled with her sister, who was previously her brother, was way too hilarious. With her tickets to Hawaii already booked, Laura wasn’t going to miss out on her vacation just because Jack wouldn’t be coming, and she was free to do as she pleased.
Laura says that even with her suspicions about Jack cheating, she still loved him and it was because of this love only that she decided to buy two tickets for Hawaii from the lottery which she had won. But, now things didn’t seem to go as planned. It was clear that Jack was unfaithful, and he decided to leave her behind, knowing this she could break free from him and move on to better things with her lottery winnings.
Better Things Ahead
This day proved to be quite a turning point in Laura’s life. Although she had a lot of mixed feelings, overall she was happy, knowing now that her suspicions were right. As she sat in the taxi and drove to the airport, she was satisfied knowing that her now ex-husband got what was coming to him and that she would get to enjoy the vacation to Hawaii – and the rest of her life – on her own terms.
