People make bad decisions every day, but one of the worst is to cheat on your spouse and partner.
In some circles these acts are lauded and celebrated via the website Ashley Madison that actually help people cheat. As you can imagine a lot of this cheating goes undetected, which really just makes it worse. Then there are instances when someone is found out. That person then finds themselves in possession of a unique power, how do they their partner know that THEY know they’ve been cheating?
Not much background is given in this situation, except that the girlfriend found out her boyfriend was cheating on her with one of her coworkers. We see him laying bed in his boxers, asleep. Unaware of the fury he’s about to be on the receiving end of. Whoever uploaded the video blurred out his face, one act of grace saving him from full on eternal internet humiliation.
Her method of letting him know is quick, decisive, and almost permanent. She sat waiting for him to fall asleep. What happens next is the what the author had in mind when he wrote, “Hell hath fury like a woman scorned.”
This situation reminds us of a couple verses from Proverbs:
For a prostitute can be had for a loaf of bread,
but another man’s wife preys on your very life.
Can a man scoop fire into his lap
without his clothes being burned? -Proverbs 6:26-27
He definitely learned his lesson.
