  1. Strong but why you did not do anything when you got o know about it for the very first time when you saw the messages of that woman on his phone. However, whatever happens , happens for good. STAY STRONG. SAY BLESSED

  2. You know something, you always had the power inside you. No woman needs a man to complete her existence. You yourself are one complete being . And I am so proud to know your story, the way you chose to free your clipped wings and flew to explore your own sky. I am proud to know that you chose your dignity above the man who didn’t acknowledge your worth. You, woman , are magnificent. Because the fire inside you burns brighter than the fire outside you.

    1. Meeting new men . She is empowered. She is independent. Magnificient. Wow. The husband did the right thing. Sooner or later this woman would cheat. The husband did it before. We men dont want this open to meeting new men type women.

  3. You are a brave girl. I don’t understand why man are always unfaithful to the person who they love, be their GF/wife. Once a cheater is always a cheater, no matter what. I think that’s how they are. I wish you all the very best for your new journey, yes the pain will always remain in your heart, we just need to embrace that pain and live our lives with dignity and peacefully.

  4. kudos to you girl. The biggest revenge to a girl who steals your man is to let her have him, because real man can never be stolen.
