Wife Posts Heartbreaking Ad Selling Her Wedding Dress After She Finds Husband Cheating


Normally after a wedding, your white gown is something that commemorates the special day you and your husband shared together. It brings back memories of your first kiss, first dance and first piece of cake together as a married couple. But for one disgruntled wife, it only brings sorrow. Can you blame her?!

Samantha, a 28-year-old blogger from the United Kingdom, recently found out her husband was having an affair AND living with the woman he was cheating on her with (talk about a double-whammy...). And because filing for divorce isn't exactly a cheap matter, Samantha decided to sell the one logical thing she could — her wedding dress.

Reeling from the emotional devastation that going through a divorce creates, this wife took to eBay to auction off her strapless lace wedding gown that she described as, "Used: Great condition but needs dry cleaning before wearing to get rid of the stench of betrayal." Ouch. She started the bidding at 500 pounds, and added a lengthy description of not only the gown, but her "scumbag of a husband" as well. It reads:

"I'm selling this designer Art Deco wedding dress in ivory. Mainly selling as I need to pay for my divorce which my ex-husband has left me to foot the bill for! It's strapless, with a long lace train which can be hooked up for the evening do...As it reaches the floor, it is a little dirty around this area and so will need a dry clean before it's worn for your special day. I didn't have time to get it dry-cleaned myself before my cheating scumbag of a husband decided to call an end to our marriage. It cost my poor parents around 2,000 pounds brand new in 2014."

"Sorry there are only two pictures, but when I found out my husband was living with another woman, I pretty much burned/permanently deleted everything with his disgusting face on it! If you want a dress that is full of bad memories and shattered hopes and dreams then this is the one for you! Hope this dress brings you a lot more happiness than it brought me in the end and if not...well you can always sell it on here!"

She ended the (understandably) bitter rant with, "If you've got any questions — either about the dress or the skank that my husband ran off with — then please feel free to contact me!"

Since posting the ad on August 11th, the bid has gone up to a whopping 29,600 pounds. See the whole ad here.
