Husband Puts Wife on Sale. Is eBay Bidding the Best Revenge?

A husband in the UK has perhaps found a new use for eBay — auctioning off his allegedly adulterous wife. He put up a listing offering his “cheating, lying, adulterous slag of a wife” to the highest bidder. The link to the wife auction zoomed around the web. The wife on sale denies any affair and cops are now investigating Paul for harassment.


The web-entrepreneuring husband who's also a father of two (yikes) said, “I started checking her emails and I realized the rumors were true. They had been discussing their sex life together and making plans for the future. I was absolutely destroyed. I gathered all her stuff in bags and dumped it in the drive.” And then in a rage promptly posted her to eBay. Bids reached almost a million bucks before he removed the posting because he realized, "it wasn’t the right thing to do." It hasn't been determined whether cheating actually occurred.

Is this crazy? While some women face much harsher consequences for suspected adultery than an online auction posting, did this man go too far? Is it just a silly lover's spat that made it on the Internet? Would you do something similar?
