A woman has been left stunned after she found some flirty messages on her husband’s private Instagram after going through his phone.
A woman went through her husband’s old phone after finding it in the drawer.
She switched it on, then signed onto his social media account – only to find that he’d been messaging another woman.
The devastated wife took the problem to the popular parenting website, Mumsnet.
On the website, she wrote: “I found my husband’s old phone in the drawer yesterday and decided to switch it on.
“I logged onto his Instagram account and saw that in his messages he’s messaged a girl he’d bumped into on a night out.
“The night out happened a few days after we’d had a miscarriage and I was away staying with friends.
“The messages were flirty and my husband asked for her number so they could contact each other via text/Whatsapp.”
After revealing her problem, she asked the other users what she should do.
She added: “For me, this is totally unacceptable and basically cheating.
“But, I can’t confront him about it because he’ll know I snooped. Advice?”
Mumsnet users were divided, with one warning her that this was “just the beginning” of his mischievous ways.
Kaytonamission wrote: “This is just the beginning. Even if that was only it, down the line it’ll get worse.
“The fact he did that just after you lost your baby says it all. Get rid. He has no respect for you.”
Others claimed she could have been jumping to conclusions.
Storm4star said: “I think there’s a lot of factors to consider.
“Do you think they’re still in contact? Do you think this was a one off or that he’s done it more than once, with other women.
While other users blamed the woman for snooping.
One Mumsnetter said: “Snooping is also awful behaviour, how do people justify it when they find nothing?”
Another agreed: “It’s not nice to snoop.”
