An Australian woman named Mel thought that she and her husband Marty had the “perfect relationship”... that is, until she discovered that he was living with another woman during his frequent business trips to Canada. The story goes that he apparently left his laptop open one night, where she spotted a message from the woman telling him to “hurry home.” That’s when she started plotting her revenge.
Mel decided that since things seemed to be going well with this Chantal from Canada, Marty might as well stay there. So, she sold their shared house while he was away again for a cheap enough price to see it bought quickly, split up the funds, and set off on a luxury cruise with her girlfriends. She didn’t bother telling her soon-to-be ex that she had sold the house, so when he came home shortly after the sale was finalized he didn’t actually have a home to come back to.
Mel hopes that her story will show women that they “always have power, even if a man has ground them down and made them feel like rubbish.” It looks like it worked out well for both parties, since Marty has apparently moved on with the Canadian mistress. And when it comes to his and Mel's marriage… he reportedly hasn’t contacted her about a divorce yet, but she says “bring it on.”
