Footage shows wife confronting cheating husband and mistress at airport

A scorned wife decided to take the matter into her own hands after discovering her husband was being unfaithful.

A video footage that was published on YouTube on May 8, 2018, has caught the moment a wife attacked her husband's mistress at an airport in Colombia.

As reported by Mirror, the wife did it after she found out that the two were sneaking off on a romantic getaway.

In the video that was viewed more than 460,000 times, the cheating husband is seen trying to separate his mistress from the forceful grip of his wife.

The wife can be heard shouting in Spanish: “On Saturday you were going to take me out with the little one and today you’re taking her."

She added: “Get rid of her or I’ll cause a scandal right now. I’m not going to let go. Hit me if you want so they throw you in jail.”

The footage also shows the anonymous spouse calling her husband's lover as a “prepago” or prostitute. She was also heard accusing her better half of being a “fake and a liar.”

An airport employee watched on as the occurrence unfolded. It is unclear if airport authorities had been compelled to mediate in the drama.

Mirror reported that the husband and his lover reportedly were flying off to a famous destination on Colombia’s Caribbean coast, Cartagena. It isn't known if the two were able to make their flight.

According to a recent General Social Survey, more men are more likely than women to cheat, as reported by IFS Studies.

The survey revealed that 20 percent of men and 13 percent of women reported they've had sex with someone other than their spouse while married.

The gender gap in infidelity varies by ages, however. Among married adults ages 18 to 29, women are more slightly more likely than men to be engaging in an extramarital affair.

But this gap reverses among those ages between 30 and 34.
