  Today, I got a new cell phone number and sent a text to my wife. Playing around, I said, "Hey sexy are you alone yet? I'm ready to come over." She responded with, "Hey, yeah he is at work - did you get a new number?" FML

I don't think OP should jump into conclusions.
Keep texting her without telling her is you, see where it leads to.
If you start assuming something, you might be wrong, but then again you could be right.
Just keep texting her see where it leads to man.

Although I think it sounds like she might be cheating there are other options. For instance, my boyfriend finds a girl friend of mine too obnoxious. So she comes when he isn't around and we joke around with each other, calling each other sexy and things.

I know it's unlikely (since he posted here), but there's always that chance that they've been together a long time and she knows him well enough to recognize his humor and decided to play along. Definitely investigate though, because like I said the chances of this are slim (but not none).

@51 if that were the case then she would have started laughing after and let him know it was a joke. Since OP has posted this up on FML, obviously that didn't happen, and his life/wife is actually fucked. Use logic.

Unless the OP submitted the FML immediately after receiving the response text or soon after. In which case the wife might not yet have had the option to start laughing and say she knew it was him.

I'm kind of with the people saying not to overreact right now. I'd head straight home and see if she's surprised it's you. If she is, divorce that bitch for everything she's got. Take the house, the cars, and the damn dog. At least dogs are loyal.. But, in my past experience dealing with a crazy ass girlfriend, she'd always try setting me up by using one of her friends phones to see if I'd "cheat" on her. I'd say some real raunchy shit and then call her out on it haha.

I doubt the first thing OP did was post on here. He undoubtedly worked on his marriage first. Even if it worked out to be her knowing it was him, the story is more fml worthy as written than if he included the follow up. Hopefully, he posts an update.


I don't understand why people always assume these things are submitted immediately after they happen. I have seen ones where the author comes back and says it happened a long time ago.

you're right jumping to conclusions right now without solid proof would be catastrophic to their relationship.
I mean she could have thought it was a friend who got a new number, he really can't tell yet after just one text.

All of you trying to defend the wife...if it was the wife in the husbands place, would you still be as sympathetic? I really doubt it.


I mess around with my bf like that all the time. he gets a new number and I make comments like that. he does the same with me. we find it funny. I say dont jump to conclussions and find out more info. like maybe she is messing around with him.

Of course it is. Everything is something to joke about. Mrs. Bastard jokes around with me all the time about Javier the pool boy when I'm on call.

At least I think she's joking . . .

There was an FML not to long ago that was something like "The other girlfriend my boyfriend jokes about isn't a joke." So obviously couples joke about cheating, other families, being gay, etc with their partners.

My boyfriend will take me out to the movies, then tell me the next morning about the "smoking hot blond" he went out with. I tell him about my date with a Swedish super model.
