Husband Wrote a Very Formal Letter to His Wife's Lover

It would be pretty devastating to discover your partner was being unfaithful to you and that your whole relationship was based on lies and deception. How calm would you stay and what would your reaction be?

A husband finally wised up to the fact that his wife was less than faithful.

With a heavy heart, he hired a private investigator to follow her and in less than a week, had all the information that he needed on the "other man."

The man convinced himself that his would still be a loving and trustworthy marriage had this nasty man not come onto the scene.

Being a millennial, he decided to handle the matter in what he judged to be a sophisticated and business-like manner.

Without saying a word to his wife on the subject, he sent the following e-mail to his wife's lover:


It has been brought to my attention that for some time now you have been carrying on an affair with my wife. So that we may settle this matter in a rational fashion, please be at my office at 3 PM on Friday next.

The "other man" was highly amused by the husband's formal manner, and knowing that the man's wife was engaged in more than one external dalliance, he sent off the following reply at once:

Dear Sir,

I have received a copy of your mass mailing this morning. You may be advised that I will attend the scheduled conference in your office's auditorium.

Well, that certainly was not what the man was expecting! Affairs do happen, however, and one of the most publicized of these is none other than the one between Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky.

Monica Lewinsky bore the brunt of their affair, going through what she described as an "avalanche of pain and humiliation" from the entire debacle.

Lewinsky was 21 years old when she graduated from university in Los Angeles and received a prime opportunity to work at the White House as an unpaid intern in July 1995.

The then-President and Lewinsky engaged in some serious flirtatious encounters of a sexual nature that Clinton, 49, denied with his much-publicized statement:

"I did not have sex with that woman."

However, the House voted to impeach Clinton for lying under oath to a federal grand jury and obstructing justice on December 19, 1998, after he was caught out in his deception.

Breaking down the humiliation in an interview with John Oliver, the host attempted to change the dialogue and deconstruct the hypocrisy surrounding the affair.
