When a woman found out her soon-to-be ex-husband was gay and had been cheating on her, she couldn't forgive him for leading her on. However, the problem was his family. They are fundamentalist nutjobs, and his mother is the interfering MIL from hell.

After cornering her about being childish and not forgiving her husband, the woman lost it and outed her ex-husband as gay to his mother. This led to a huge family drama, and he's probably going to be disowned. The woman feels bad for him, but at the same time, she feels like he made his own bed.

Read on to find out more about this sad and hard situation.

Woman outs ex-husband as gay to shut up interfering MIL 🤫

After discovering her soon-to-be-ex-husband was gay and cheated on her, a woman faced her interfering mother-in-law who believed the divorce was caused by her lack of attractiveness. In a heated exchange, the woman made a comment she regrets, causing a huge family drama.

Her ex-husband is now being disowned but the woman feels she is not to blame for the outcome. The family is known for shunning members who do not follow their beliefs, so it is unlikely that the woman's ex-husband will face any physical harm. However, his life has been turned upside down.

The woman shares that her ex-husband knew he was gay before they were married and had a boyfriend at the time. She was simply the first girl to show interest in him. What do you think of the woman's actions in this situation?
