Today, my brother showed my wife a Craigslist ad by someone seeking casual sex. It had very specific details that made it seem like I wrote it. My brother later admitted in private that he made the post as revenge for me not loaning him $500 last month. Meanwhile, my wife still thinks I'm unfaithful. FML

So your brother's response to not getting money was to try and ruin your marriage? I'd keep him at arms length from now on. And honestly, 500 isn't "i'm going to lose my house" money. I'm curious what was so important that he needed the money for.

Wow not cool. That's taking it to far. Time to plan for some revenge Op.

Now what you should do is frame him for something then tell him in private to or just try to explain to wife

Revenge.. bone breaking.. putting the fear of God in him. You know, the usual.

This is when you fight back. Sorry OP, hope you earn her trust back, at least some of it :/

These are times during which you throw the dude under the bus. A literal bus.

I apologize for my comment on number 4. Was trying to edit my first one and accidentally pressed enter. No clue how to delete my comment 4.

That is kinda sad on your brother for doing that and your wife just thinking you are unfaithful without doing any digging on her own.

I wouldn't really keep him at arm's length... more like the length of the state of California.

Probably drugs. Loans. Somethin like that.

my house payment is less than $500 so who knows. I doubt the money was going to go to anything good though.

is your house on wheels?

Open your email in front of your wife, make your brother do the same, and write a response to the post. When it not only doesn't go to your email, but actually goes to his, booyah.

Nice thinking! I hope the OP sees this and takes your advice, could save his marriage

Maybe not. OP would have been getting those emails and known something was up, assuming there were any previous responses. I would try it. Or just beat his ass until he fesses up to the wife. Either way is good.

He would have gotten a verification email if his brother tried that, the post wouldn't go up unless he confirmed.

explain this to your wife, I'm sure she'll understand. how come he knows the specific details anyway ?

They were probably details like what OP looks like, what area he lives in, what his "type" is (likely a description of OP's wife)

So, uh...what was your wife doing looking at the casual hookup part of Craigslist?

The brother showed her.

Did you even read it?
