When Penelope found out that her husband was lying on her, she thought of a way to seek revenge. Her husband got the biggest birthday surprise that changed his life forever.
Penelope, a successful doctor, always supported her husband Benny’s dream of becoming a businessman. So much so that she funded his startup that took off after three years. Recently, Benny has been working late to sign a big deal.
When Penelope arrived home early from work one day, she decided to bring her husband food and coffee for yet another late night in the office. But when she got there, Penelope saw her husband in the arms of another woman.

With a mix of emotions, Penelope went home in shock and tears. However, she refused to confront her husband and wanted to learn more about his affair. She acted like a more caring wife and started serving her husband with good food and such.
One day, Benny left his phone by the nightstand while he went for his morning jog. Penelope couldn’t help but go through the messages, and the first thing she saw was Melissa’s name.

Then, she realized that their prenup indicated that the first spouse to file for divorce would get nothing. However, it also stated that the cheating spouse would be left with nothing, so Penelope started to think of her revenge.

Of course, there was no convention. Penelope instead booked an Airbnb across their home and planned a surprise party with their family, friends, Benny’s colleagues, and known businessmen with ties to her husband.
On the morning of his birthday, while he was in bed with Melissa, Penelope quietly decorated the living room and gathered everyone for a brunch celebration. When Melissa and Benny came out of the room, everyone yelled “surprise” then gasped in shock.

Penelope’s revenge allowed her to gain custody of their dog and properties while ruining her husband’s reputation in the business world. Suddenly, investors wanted to pull out of their deals and cut ties with Benny.
