When you and your significant other break up, it's always very difficult. But if that breakup is a divorce, it's even worse. Not only are you no longer a couple, the legal matters only add to the stress of a very trying time.
The letter begins with, "Dear Wife, I’m writing you this letter to tell you that I’m leaving you forever. I’ve been a good man to you for 7 years & I have nothing to show for it. These last 2 weeks have been hell."
The husband continued, saying, "Your boss called to tell me that you quit your job today & that was the last straw." It seems odd someone to hear this from their spouse's boss rather than the spouse herself. Why aren't they talking face-to-face?
Next, the husband said, "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." Although maybe she didn't notice the haircut because he was wearing boxers and nothing else.
The husband next revealed he has some suspicions about his wife's behavior. "You don’t tell me you love me anymore; you don’t want sex or anything that connects us as husband & wife. Either you’re cheating on me or you don’t love me anymore; whatever the case, I’m gone."
However, the wife wasn't too upset about getting the letter. She responded with, "Dear Ex-Husband, Nothing has made my day more than receiving your letter. It’s true you & I have been married for 7 years, although a good man is a far cry from what you’ve been."
She also explained why she didn't comment on his new haircut. "I DID notice when you got a hair cut last week, but the 1st thing that came to mind was ‘You look just like a girl!’ Since my mother raised me not to say anything if you can’t say something nice, I didn’t comment."
She also responded to two more items mentioned in the first letter. "When you cooked my favorite meal, you must have gotten me confused with MY SISTER, because I stopped eating pork 7 years ago. About those new silk boxers: I turned away from you because the $49.99 price tag was still on them."
Next came the kicker of the letter. "After all of this, I still loved you & felt we could work it out. So when I hit the lotto for 10 million dollars, I quit my job & bought us 2 tickets to Jamaica. But when I got home you were gone." Wait, what?
While this tale is entertaining and enthralling, you may have noticed some things that seem a bit odd. For instance, why do the man and woman refer to each other as "husband" and "wife" instead of by names? Well, some investigating gives us the answer.
While some people who commented on Facebook seemed to think these letters are real, it doesn't appear that any of this actually happened. If a lotto winner had really received a letter like this, it would have likely been all over the news, and we'd know the man and woman's actual names. But just because it's fake doesn't mean we can't enjoy the ride.
