Wife Gets Last Laugh On Cheating Husband’s Tombstone

When a loved one passes away, it is a very sad time for their friends and family who have to process the loss.

There are many things to get in order, one of which is a tombstone and the inscription. A person on Reddit is going viral for asking if she should change the message that her mom picked out for her late father’s tombstone.

The Ongoing Affair

The story begins with the daughter explaining that her parents’ marriage had become quite bitter toward the end.

The father also had an ongoing affair with a coworker of his who was also married.

Another layer to the affair was that her father had gotten the woman he was having an affair with pregnant shortly before he passed.

This meant that the woman would be raising the child without him in the picture.

The father was planning to leave his wife and start a life with the other woman and they had picked out a home in Canada to move to.

He, unfortunately, died suddenly while having sex.

It Was Never Final

While the husband had already moved out of the home and was starting a life with the other woman, he and his wife were never officially divorced.

There never was a legal separation.

She Had Her Say

The wife was very hurt by the whole situation and was quite petty, according to the daughter.

She got her revenge through what was written on his tombstone. The partner and her dad’s family would like it to be changed but the daughter thinks it’s okay.

People Supporting The Mom

Reddit comment: I would DIE (no pun intended) if I was talking through a cemetery and saw that! Your mom is an icon. NTA. I hope she burns his old shirts or something. Also, while going through estate papers and talking to lawyers, ask about what rights the side piece will have in claiming money for her kid, since it was your dad's kid too. Just so you're all prepared.

Many of the people in the comments were supportive of the wife’s decision of what to include on the tombstone.

This person called her an icon. What do you think, should it be changed?
