Christ­mas is sup­posed to be a time of joy and to­geth­er­ness, but these peo­ple were caught cheat­ing…

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

Cather­ine Coulthard, and her hus­band Jamie, both 42, got mar­ried two years after meet­ing on­line in 2007.

‘Friends re­ferred to us as the per­fect cou­ple,’ Cather­ine told The Sun news­pa­per.

In 2011, Jamie’s of­fice Christ­mas party was be­ing held in a ho­tel not far from their house.

Cather­ine of­fered to pick him up af­ter­wards, but he said he’d booked him­self a room to save her the trou­ble.

They en­joyed Christ­mas Day to­gether, then New Year’s Eve was spent at home with her kids.

But a few weeks later Jamie dropped a bomb­shell – he wanted a di­vorce.

Frus­trated by his re­fusal to ex­plain, a heart­bro­ken Cather­ine searched through his emails for an­swers.

‘There was email after email from a young woman that he worked with,’ Cather­ine says.

The emails re­vealed the pair had spent the night of the Christ­mas party to­gether.

Cather­ine and Jamie di­vorced on the grounds of in­fi­delity, and Cather­ine said it would be a long time be­fore she could trust any­one again.

‘Jamie was re­ally look­ing for­ward to his work Christ­mas party,’ she said.

‘And now I know why.’
