A heartbroken bride has decided to cash in on husbands infidelity by selling £12,000 of her wedding momentoes on Facebook, after she found a love letter penned to his ‘secret mistress, signed ‘Your Mr Grey’.
And who can blame her. They always say there is a silver lining to every cloud, and I think she just found the gold one.
Sarah Williams, 32, from Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, married 33-year-old George in 2011 just 2 years after they had met. However, four years into their marriage she found a letter stashed away in her husband’s work bag, with a reference to the eponymous Christian Grey from the erotic novel Fifty Shades.
One day she was looking for a screwdriver when she came across the letter.
‘I was heartbroken. It was all about how amazing this woman was, how excited he was about the future with her and how it was the first of many birthdays they’d spend together.
‘He had signed the letter with, “your Mr Grey” and it was clear he was having a full blown affair.’
Williams confronted her husband who admitted that he had been having a relationship with another woman.
Mrs Williams kicked him out the house and the pair have been separated ever since. Once she decided to file for a divorce she decided that she might as well cash in on the process, and we don’t blame her.
This is what she had to say about it…
‘On our big day in 2011 we were surrounded by our closest family and friends, I had the most amazing dress and I felt great in it.’
‘I just hope that the next bride to wear my Justin Alexander dress has better luck in marriage than I did.
‘It’s a perfect white dress with sequin detail, I paid £17,00 for it as well so it wasn’t cheap.

‘I suppose when you’re so excited about getting married paying a lot for your dress seems worthwhile. ‘
Once her finances have settled Mrs Williams is hoping to be divorced ASAP.
She said: ‘I really want to sell the items from my wedding day to George so I can move on with my life.
‘It would be great to treat the kids to a nice holiday once I’ve sold my head band, dress and rings.
‘I would’ve been tempted to sell any wedding gifts too but we only received cash and I allowed the bridesmaid to keep their dresses.’
