Imagine discovering your husband-to-be was scouring the Internet for women, while you were finalising table plans and flower arrangements for your big day?
That’s exactly what happened to one woman who revealed to 9Honey that the discovery has broken her heart.
The woman, known only as Tiana, told the publication that after dating for seven years, marriage seemed the natural next step.
Despite a few disagreements over the wedding planning, she had no idea that the man she was about to marry had in fact created a dating profile online suggesting to potential suitors that he was single.
But two days before the wedding, while the bride-to-be was at a meeting at the church with close family members, her best friend took her aside saying she needed to talk to her.
“She took me out to the church garden and took out her phone. What she showed me shocked me so much I still can’t believe it,” she revealed.
Though it took Tiana a while to realise who it was in the Tinder profile she was looking at, realising it was her groom left her devastated.
“I must have stood there for ages just speechless, my mouth wide open. I think I said, ‘No way, no way’ over and over again,” she said.
“The way he described himself was as though he was a young, single man.”
Having discovered her husband to be was living a double dating life, Tiana has since called off the wedding.
She later learnt her ex had started seeing a woman quite seriously and I’m told they’re still together.
“At least I found out before I married him,” she said.
Tiana’s groom isn’t the only example of someone being coupled-up while scrolling dating sites. In fact recent research has revealed that a third of Brits are apparently still active on dating apps when they’re in relationships.
A study of 2,100 people, by family law firm Slater and Gordon, revealed that almost three quarters (74%) of participants would consider a divorce if they discovered their partner on an app.
One in five, however, said that they wouldn’t mind, with two-thirds of 16-24-year-olds saying they’d forgive their partners for keeping their options open online.
Almost half (46%) of the guys surveyed said they had used a dating tool while in a relationship, citing boredom, dwindling sex lives and arguments as the primary reasons.
Women, on the other hands, are far more digitally faithful with only a fifth (21%) admitting to using an app behind their other half’s back.
Meanwhile in other bridal news, a bride-to-be’s ‘save the date’ has gone viral after she asked guests to take a fortnight off work for her destination wedding.
It doesn’t end there, however, the soon-to-be-wed also asked her guests to save almost almost £3,000 to attend the three-day-long nuptials and cover the cost of the trip.
And last month, a bride asked her wedding party to dress in a weight-based dress code. Women above 160 pounds and men above 200 pounds were requested to wear black or camouflage.
