I Threw My Husband’s Mistress and Their Baby on the Street; I Needed to Stay Firm on My Decision

In a world where personal boundaries and moral dilemmas often clash, navigating relationships can become a minefield. This is especially true in today’s story.

She shared what happened.

My common-law husband and I, both in our early forties, have spent a decade together in what I believed to be a loving and happy relationship. However, I recently discovered he had a mistress on the side.

As a furniture maker, I earn around €1 million a year, while my husband is a teacher. I’ve always been the primary provider and never questioned how he spent his salary. Despite our significant income, we live modestly by choice, though we have a large house, nice cars, and an impressive art collection. All of these, however, are in my name.

It turns out my husband met his 25-year-old mistress under false pretenses, leading her to believe that we were legally married and he owned half of my business and assets. When she became pregnant, he began using his salary to support her. While he was on vacation in Dubai, her lease expired, and she showed up at my door with their baby.

She introduced herself as his girlfriend and claimed that my husband and I were getting a divorce, suggesting she should live in our house while I could afford to stay in a hotel. Refusing to leave, I called the police and locked myself in the greenhouse. By the time the police arrived, she was already unpacking her baby’s clothes in the living room. They escorted her out, leaving me shaken and shocked.

Later, I learned the full extent of my husband’s betrayal. Despite his mother accusing me of being heartless for putting her grandson on the street, and claiming I used my wealth to control everything, I was baffled by the mistress’s affluence. My husband, who earns around $60k a year, had been giving her his entire salary, yet she showed up with designer bags, a high-end stroller, and Van Cleef & Arpels jewelry. Now, I’m painted as the villain.

People stood on her side.
