that's life (Australia) - - Betra Yal -

Early Christ­mas morn­ing in 2012, Lucy Turner, 26, crept out to the car to col­lect the presents her fi­ancé Alan had hid­den there the night be­fore.

Their son Ri­ley was two and Lucy couldn’t wait to see his face when he saw what they’d bought him.

But then Lucy spot­ted a mo­bile phone she didn’t recog­nise.

Scrolling through the con­tents, Lucy found x-rated text mes­sages and pho­tos of Alan with an­other woman.

‘My whole body went hot and I was shak­ing with shock and anger,’ Lucy told the Mir­ror.

Alan de­nied ev­ery­thing, even get­ting an­gry at Lucy’s ac­cu­sa­tions.

When Ri­ley woke up, Lucy vowed not to ruin Christ­mas for him, even hand­ing Alan the gifts she’d saved up for months to buy.

But after she’d served up his turkey din­ner, Alan ad­mit­ted he wasn’t in love with her any­more.

The next day he walked out on their five-year re­la­tion­ship – just two months be­fore their wed­ding.

‘I love Christ­mas, it’s a mag­i­cal time of year,’ Lucy says. ‘But it will never be the same for me.’

Alan and Lucydid not have a merry Christ­mas
