Woman Takes Revenge on Cheating Husband by Selling Their House While He Is Away on Business

42-year-old Laura Arnolds came up with the perfect plan to get back at her husband for cheating on her – she sold the house while he was away on a business trip! When Craig Arnolds returned, he was utterly bewildered to find his locks changed and six students in his living room.

It all started when Laura found a message on her husband’s phone that he’d accidentally left behind when he left for a business trip to the US. The rather ‘steamy’ message from an American woman about what Craig could expect once he reached New York clearly implied he was being unfaithful.

Laura was obviously upset, but instead of blowing up at him she decided to get even. Lucky for her, her parents had taken over the mortgage of their Warwickshire property, so she was able to sell the house within a fortnight through a website that specializes in selling houses fast, to a group of students at the University of Warwick. She then packed her bags and left.


The news quickly went viral, and Laura was contacted by the media for a statement. “Things aren’t great between us at the moment,” she told Fast Sale Today. “I could do it because my parents came up with the deposit for our home and when we struggled with the mortgage, they came in.”

Craig, who now lives in London, also spoke to the media about his bafflement upon return. “All the lights were on and the TV was blaring,” he recalled. “I remember thinking it was really out of character for Laura to be up past 11pm. I had no idea what on earth was going on. At this point I seriously freaked out, jet lagged and frantic – I started banging on the door and shouting Laura’s name – but was greeted instead by what looked like a 21-year-old hippie.”

He walked in and was completely disoriented by what he saw. “I noticed all Laura’s furniture was gone, but the chairs and tables I’d inherited from my late father, plus my set of golf clubs and vintage radio – which Laura always hated – was sitting on the kitchen table in all its glory.”


“She’d included all my prized possessions in the ‘fixtures and fittings’. I was gutted. I still can’t get my head around how she did this in the space of a two week holiday.”

Although he was initially shocked, Craig said he got over it eventually and has decided that life is “too short to dwell on these things.” He said that he wants to stop all hostilities, for the sake of their children. “Who knows, maybe by getting this out of her system will allow us to build on the existing amicable relationship?”

But he did admit that his true feelings at the moment were “a little more colorful than that so probably won’t be printable.”

“Last time I marry an Italian, that’s for sure,” he added, wryly.
