A man who had been married to his wife for almost forty years decided to dump her for a younger woman.

The man and his former wife were residing in a beautiful home that he wanted to remain in with his newfound love. Hence, he went to his ex-wife with a proposal.

The man asked her to move out of their home, promising to buy her another place. She agreed to the arrangement but asked him to give her three days alone in the house to pack her things.

The man agreed to this request. On the first day of her stay in the house, the woman packed her belongings into suitcases, boxes, and crates, while she called the movers to collect them on the second day.

On the third day, the woman, in a relaxed mood, sat down for the last time at the candlelit dining table. Soft music played in the background, with the woman feasting on one kilogram of prawns and a bottle of Chardonnay.

After eating, she went into each of the rooms in the house, depositing a few of the prawn shells into the hollow of the curtain rods. When she was done with that, she cleaned the kitchen and left the house.

The man returned to the house with his new love interest, and together, they enjoyed a life of bliss for a few days. However, they began to perceive an awful odor in the house.

Perplexed, they could not understand where the stench was coming from and did everything to stop it, cleaning, mopping, spraying air fresheners, and checking for rodents, all to no avail.

They also called exterminators and replaced the carpets, yet there was no improvement. Soon people stopped visiting them, with their maid even quitting her job. They eventually moved out of the house and made efforts to sell it a month after.

No one was willing to buy the property even after they slashed the price by half, with the news of their smelling home going viral. They had to borrow some money from the bank to purchase a new house.

After some time, the man's former wife called him to ask how things had been. He told her about their experience with the smelling house.

However, she pleaded that she should be allowed to go back to the house, as she had missed it, even accepting a reduction in her divorce settlement to make it happen.

The man, thinking his ex-wife didn't know how bad the house smelled, agreed on a price that was a tenth of the house's original worth. He, however, gave a condition that she must sign the papers that very day, which she agreed to.

A week after, a moving company came and packed properties belonging to the man and his newfound love from the house. The new couple watched happily as the movers took everything to their new home, including the curtain rods.
