A 99-year-old Caucasian man has reportedly divorced his wife due to infidelity after being married for 77 years.
He was said to have discovered few days before Christmas that his 96-year-old wife was engaged in extramarital affair 60 years ago.
The man found secret love letters which his wife exchanged with her former lover six decades ago, which had been hidden in a drawer.
He confronted the woman about the affair and she confessed but begged him to not let it affect their long-lasting marriage.
He, however, proceeded to file for divorce despite appeals and they are now the oldest divorcees on record.
In similar news, a man has taken to social media to narrate how his marriage survived numerous infidelities on his part and that of his wife.
He said that it all started with his wife cheating on him two years into their marriage because he was often away due to the fact that he worked in an oil field.
The young man known as @VengeanceGod31 shared his story while reacting to the rumoured affair between Co-anchors of Good Morning America.
He noted that when he found out his wife was cheating, he refused to divorce her because he did not want his marriage to fail and wished to have a long lasting union like that of his parents which spanned 41 years.
According to the man, he endured the marriage for long until he met another lady, who became his girlfriend. But he eventually divorced his wife after having a life threatening accident.
He wrote; Used to damn near cry having to leave the love of my life to go home to my wife
When a tweep @smaorty asked; Why didn’t you divorce your wife when you realised you didn’t want her anymore?
@VengeanceGod31 replied; Didn’t want to fail at a marriage….my parents been married 41 yrs..so I know what a successful one looks like..I know it took forgiveness and work.. caught her in an affair 2 yrs in cuz I worked in the oilfield she had alot of free time.
Cheating has never been a big deal to me no way tho….it just reminded me that I should have never married her in the first place…I only did it cuz she threatened to take my son from me…after addressing her infidelity we agreed to an open marriage..lol
Well it was either that or divorce…and it was kool until I fell in love with my girlfriend and that’s where I wanted to be…
Shit was most definitely an X rated life time movie lol….I didn’t leave until I had a work accident….was in icu for like a month….it was then I realized exactly who I was married to..and I said if I made it out of that hospital I would leave..and I did.
