Awkward Facebook Message: ‘I’m Married To Your Husband, Ma’am’


Facebook is awesome. It brings people together. Including women who are awkwardly married to the same man.

Such was the experience of a 38-year-old Australian newlywed when her husband’s first wife reached out to her revealing that, in fact, she was still his wife.

The “new” Mrs. Keyet (first name withheld) married her 40-year-old partner in a civil ceremony recently, after he told her that his marriage from 16 years past wasn’t actually valid. Later, the “old” Mrs. Keyet received a Facebook message, which read:

“Hello, new Mrs Keyet. How can you be Mrs Keyet when I am still Mrs Keyet? From the old Mrs Keyet.”

The new Mrs. Keyet checked out the claim, finding that the old Mrs. Leyet was right: The marriage was never dissolved. She then had her marriage to Mr. Keyet annulled. For his part, he decided to not show up in court, sending her a text that read:

“I think I’ve put you through enough hurt.”

Which, of course, means that he knew damn well his first marriage was never dissolved.

The formerly-new Mrs. Keyet is now apparently considering bigamy charges against him.
