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?

I'm in agreement with you AK. What he did was a very passionate act which proves how much he must have cared. People do rash things when they have that much passion. No one can guess what either of them have been through with each other, but there are actually worse things than having your laundry aired to the world. There are really more important news stories out there...and life goes on.

Wow, people sure get emotional over this stuff. Humans fuck up, even when they love each other. It's not the end of the world, and it doesn't always mean the end of the love. Love is *messy* and imperfect.

The immature part of me says, "Yeah, great punishment for any idiot cheater!" The mature part of me say, "Hello, have you had your daily dose of self-control, today?" Naturally, I am innately vindictive and I wish the worst for people who commit selfish, hurtful acts like cheating with no remorse. At the same time, is there another side to this story? A better man would not do what this husband did. It makes me question him as a person and maybe his wife tried to temporarily escape the relationship by being with someone else who treats her better.

Well in a way she deserved it however it wasn't the right thing to do; I would have taken her favorite expensive piece of wardrobe and shred it (still not right however you can't be charged,lol.)

He's sort of nuts, but compared to cheating, what he did isn't so bad. 1 - I feel bad for the kids with these parents. 2 - If I get cheated on, I wouldn't tell the world. I would think there is some embarrassment in your wife cheating on you, going behind your back, lying, wanting someone else...etc.

OK... this was OBVIOUSLY a joke. Clearly this dude didn't expect to actually get paid. He was just publicly burning his wife. Personally, I think it's freaking hilarious. As are the things Monday did. I agree that it's not classy, but to sue him for harassment? Come on. You can't possibly expect to mess around on your loved one and have it kept private. I think when you screw up you need to be able to deal with the consequences of your actions, including public humiliation. Maybe if she had ended things in a more adult way (such as, "Honey, we need to split up, I don't love you anymore") he would have acted more like an adult. As far as the kids go -- no parent is perfect. Every parent does something to mess their kid up or scar them for life, some worse than others. I mean, it's not like they're beating their kids. If this is all they have to deal with, no biggie. They'll get over it, and have a hell of a story to tell their college buddies.

I'm with you Monday...my ex-husband cheated on me too. Unfortunately I wasn't as creative as you. I realy wish I would have thought of that stuff. lol. I say once you go as low as to cheat on me you're fair game for me to throw some unpleasantness your way.

Well yester that sounds more evil than the EBAY idea and certainly a lot more work. He would be out a million bucks in one day and she would be out a lucrative TV offer.

i think this is brilliant. you cheat, you deserve it. but he could make a lot more money if he just got her addicted to crack and sold her on the streets rather than over the internet. he could get paid every day, rather than in one lump sum. anyway, just my thoughts.

I too would like a jaunty sailor emoticon. I don't generally use them... but that would be an exception.

I agree it wasn't right. I know I'm being really defensive of this guy... but it's only because I've been there and it's hella hard to deal with. I still can't have a functional relationship because of it.

Come to think of it, he really helped her out. She can now take the offer for $1,000,000 herself and will be able to also afford her next divorce.

The depth of his humiliation must have been pretty great in order to justify such a scheme since he would also be ruining his own reputation in the process. Maybe they don't have any kids. I think it is rather funny myself and in the end she can always say someone was willing to pay a million dollars for her. I wonder why he didn't take the money and run. Maybe I should put myself up on EBAY. She's a celebrity now....it should only be a matter of days before she get's an offer for reality TV.

:rotfl: CaterpillarGirl! MondayMoos, I see what you're saying, but I do think this guy crossed a line in a very telling way. I'm not saying anyone should be expected to react to infidelity calmly--I certainly wouldn't, and a certain amount of rage and lashing out is justifiable (by the way, all the stuff you did to your husband was hilarious!--but, like I say, there are limits to everything. This goes even beyond public humiliation. What this guy did was to basically set his wife up, complete with identifying picture, for global humiliation. It rather reminded me of a public stoning, in a way. That, to me, goes beyond the natural desire to hurt the person that hurt you, into just plain cruelty. It's one thing to have the impulse to do something like this, another to actually act on it. That shows a lack of basic self-control that I do think is telling. I don't know if I'd consider it prosecutable (probably not), but it definitely makes me shake my head. Even he realized he'd gone too far--after all, he did take it down and said he realized it wasn't the right thing to do.
