A woman and her best friend had been sisters since they were in the 2nd grade. They’d gone through everything together and were each other’s lifelines.
The woman helped her best friend through several traumatic events. She gave her a shoulder to cry on when her mom died when they were 17, and she’s given her shelter, food, and clothes during difficult times.

After failing to pay rent, the friend once again knocked on the woman’s door to ask for a place to stay. She welcomed her into the home she shared with her husband.

Things Were Seemingly Normal at Home
The woman was seven months pregnant while her best friend lived with them. She congratulated her on the pregnancy, had dinner with her and her husband daily, and cleaned the house, so her pregnant friend didn’t have to.

However, one day, things changed. The woman’s friend took a pregnancy test, and it turned out to be positive.
Initially, the woman thought nothing of it and was confused about why her friend asked her to sit down. Then her friend’s face said it all: she was pregnant with her best friend’s husband’s child.

Without a word said, the woman asked her why. Her friend explained that she didn’t know why, but it might have been because she was lonely, and her husband was just “available,” given they lived in the same house.
The woman was speechless. She couldn’t find the right words to say, so she just got up and left.

The Woman Left Their Home
The woman checked herself into a motel and spoke about her experience on Reddit. As she typed, she could feel her innocent baby kick inside her.
After discovering she was gone, her husband kept trying to reach her. He asked if they could talk, but the woman would rather not.

She made up her mind quickly. Rather than trying to make up with her best friend and husband, she planned to ask her dad to help her pack her things.
“Years of friendship and marriage is just gone,” she shared. “She’s ruined everything… my best friend ruined everything.”

People on the internet commended her for thinking soundly despite her situation. They felt she made the right choice by leaving rather than staying in a toxic relationship for the sake of her child.
“I’m sorry this happened to you, but I’m glad to hear you are making an escape plan. Too often, people stay in a toxic situation and waste years being lied to and manipulated,” one user wrote.

“Being cheated on is heartbreaking in itself. But finding out when you’re pregnant is just awful. Please take care of yourself and your baby. Surround yourself [with] those who truly love you and who will be supportive of you,” another echoed.
People who went through the same situation also ensured the woman was not alone. They shared their own stories, hoping to encourage the woman that while things were going to be difficult for a while, they eventually got better.

After some reminding from people on Reddit that her husband was also at fault, the woman clarified that she knew it took two to tango. However, she was more hurt by her best friend’s betrayal because they had known each other before they knew what love was.

Ultimately, people encouraged the woman to stay healthy, especially since she was due to give birth in two months. Her baby was now her top priority, as well as her own welfare.

The woman was in a heartbreaking situation, betrayed by the two people she loved most. If you were in this situation, what would you have done? Would you have done the same thing by leaving the husband, or would you have stuck around?
In a similarly twisted story, a woman discovered her fiancé and sister were having an affair. Years later, her sister demanded to be a bridesmaid at her wedding.
