After Her Husband Cheated, This Woman Put Her Wedding Dress on eBay With a Brilliant Listing
Update: Samantha's ex-husband responded to the eBay listing with a video of his own. He explained that he did in fact fall in love with another woman, but he also offered to pay for half of the divorce and the offer still stands. Check it out to hear both sides of the story.
Original story: When UK woman Samantha Wragg listed her wedding dress on eBay, she didn't receive a lot of responses from potential buyers. She was putting it up for sale to pay for her divorce — her husband had cheated on her and left her for the other woman. Her brother then made the brilliant suggestion to jazz up her listing with the background story on why she was selling the dress. Soon enough, the listing went viral because of Samantha's honesty — her post is genius. Her dress is now being bid on at £65,900!
Some highlights include the condition of the dress. "Great condition but needs dry cleaning before wearing to get rid of the stench of betrayal." She also goes on to explain the details of the dress while including parts of her own story:
"As it reaches the floor, it is a little dirty around this area and so will need a dry clean before it's worn for your special day. I didn't have time to get it dry-cleaned myself before my cheating scumbag of a husband decided to call an end to our marriage. It cost my poor parents around £2000 brand new in 2014!"
She even explains why she can't provide buyers with more pictures. We love the honesty.
"Sorry that there are only two pictures but when I found out my husband was living with another woman, I pretty much burned/permanently deleted everything with his disgusting face on it! If you want a dress that is full of bad memories and shattered hopes and dreams then this is the one for you! Hope this dress brings you a lot more happiness than it brought me in the end and if not . . . well you can always sell it on here!"
Now Samantha will get the money she needs for the divorce, and we'd say the revenge she's getting on her cheating husband is pretty sweet. Go Samantha!
