Make Her Famous

There is an old "military tradition" that I apparently didn't know about until today.

"Make this bi*#ch famous"

When a wife or girlfriend cheats on her deployed significant other, mass forwards spread via cell phone and email contacts including the girl's name as well as pornographic images of the girl (likely taken herself for her deployed hubby or boyfriend).

I learned about this today after receiving such a text (TMI doesn't even cover it). I can't imagine being deployed and finding out your wife or girlfriend is a slut-box. However, this is not the way to go about it. Not a classy move. Extremely distasteful and the possible legal ramifications of such action could come back to haunt YOU, not her.

So, a note to all the jilted lovers serving our country:

I realize you probably feel helpless deployed and you probably want to lash out, but if you want to come out on top you have to listen to me. I have a plan.

Lady's guide for the deployed guy who finds he's a cuckold (look it up). Instead of leaking her private pictures, this is what you should be doing:
1) First of all, you should NEVER entrust a girl you've been dating for a month to your finances, home, car or other. I don't care if you're in love. I don't care if she got your name tattooed on her wrist. I don't care if you're married or she's pregnant. Set up an allotment for her if that's the case, but don't be stupid.

2) If cheating is confirmed, leave reconciliation for after homecoming. You cannot handle this and do your job.

3) If you were stupid and she has all your debit and credit cards, shut her down. Call your bank, your credit card company and make sure no one but YOU can access your money. Change passwords, pin numbers and if she's part of a joint account, reroute your cash flow to an individual account. If you have children, make sure you have a documented allotment for them.

4) Don't be afraid to hurt her pretty little feelings. If she dangles reconciliation in front of you to keep you from restricting her financials, you are getting played.

5)If divorce is likely, talk to your JAG. See what your options are.

6) By taking the right (legal) steps to ensuring that you are protected, you are taking the high road and getting the upper hand. If you waste all your time trying to humiliate or hurt this chick she will be the one laughing all the way to the bank.

7) You have better things to do than worry about her, as she's obviously not worried about you. Success is truly the best revenge.

8) Try to be civil. Especially if you have children. Your job is not to punish her. Your job is move on and make a better situation for yourself (and your kids if you have them).


*And I have to say, if you're gonna send your man saucy pics, keep in mind that there is ALWAYS a chance that they will somehow be leaked. If you would be humiliated by that, DON'T SEND THEM!!

  2. I completely agree. I would hate to be the guy that finds out. I just think it's horrible in the first place for girls to cheat on their deployed husbands. Great post =)

  5. I first got one of those last summer. I was like 'wtf is this?!'

    I'm not one to forward that stuff, but honestly, if you're gonna send out those pictures, you're PROBABLY going to get burned.

    This is one of those "I won't do it, but to each their own" things with me.

  8. What a dignified response from a very classy lady! Kudos.

  9. Sure it's wrong to cheat, but passing along someone's business is definitely not classy in anyway. It makes you no better than the cheater.

  15. I wonder how many guys who are deployed cheat on their significant others? I'm sure no one is sending around naked pics of them. Sounds like one HUGE double standard to me...

  16. I know what you're talking about. It's really sad how if the spouse is away, that means "those wives" can play. How tacky. I love your list, and wish more would follow it. Maybe make that list famous!

  18. Thank you for the voice of reason. I have an ex-GF back stateside (I've been in Afghanistan 6 months) that has been busy running parody profiles of me using derogatory pics alongside real pics of me. Believe me, really tempted to "Make-her-famous". Tips like this are keeping me civil and sane.

  19. I have gotten and forwarded a lot of these text messages. It is a tradition, whether you believe it or not. I have no pity for the cheaters while the military member is deployed.

  22. Haha listen to all u dumb bitches...stupid hoes deserve it ....and if a guy cheats while deployed....he deserves it...Fuck being classy , hoes don't deserve respect

  23. I completely disagree. There are some bullets that those of us who get shot at would bite. If its attention from other men she craves while your away, then attention she shall receive.

  24. fuck that i agree if she (my ex-wife that fucked 7 guys while i was deployed to iraq for 14 months) wants to be famous so be it the military is based on tradition and im not one to ruin tradition

  25. I like how a majority of the people who posted that it wasnt "Classy" to put ur slutty wife or gf on blast ARE WOMEN. Most of you prob have cheated before. If a girl cant stay faithful for such a short amount of time then we shall make her famous for all of the missed years to come.
