Social media definitely has its pitfalls, but services like Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, and WhatsApp have been able to connect people all over the world, and that's no small feat. In the case of Yulia and Nazar, these services can also disconnect people. When Yulia was scrolling through Instagram, she noticed something strange.
A picture caught her attention that would change her marriage forever. Keep reading to find out what she saw.
Started Out Scrolling
This story begins on Instagram.
A woman named Yulia who lives in Russia was scrolling through the "discover" page on Instagram when she saw something that threw her for a loop.
A Familiar View
She saw a photo of a very familiar view.
It looked exactly like the view from her apartment. Upon closer inspection, she realized that it was the view from her apartment, a view that she shared with her husband, Nazar.
The Window Gave It Away
But who posted the picture? Yulia clicked on the profile and saw that it belonged to a woman she didn't recognize.
This was not someone whom she had invited into her home.
A Strange Comment
Yulia was suspicious, so she decided to post a comment on this stranger's picture. She wrote, "Beautiful view from my husband's bedroom window."
She had a sinking feeling in her stomach that her husband wasn't being faithful.
A Full Investigation
Yulia started digging. She wanted to know everything she could about this strange woman and what she had been up to.
The woman, Vlada Abramovich, had many more interesting pics, including some of Yulia's husband.
He Tried To Shrug It Off
At this point, Yulia was pretty sure that her husband was having an affair. When she confronted him about it, he tried to shrug it off.
He tried to convince her that it was all in her head.
He Made Up A Lie About Going To The Cinema
When Yulia kept pushing, Nazar said the photo came from when she was out of town and he "invited some friends over for a drink before they went to the cinema."
Sure, we believe him.
Yulia's Not Dumb
Yulia is a smart cookie. She had gotten this far all on her own, and she was not about to fall for Nazar's gaslighting tactics.
Vlada also wasn't exactly on Nazar's side.
Valda Spilled The Beans
Vlada wasn't holding anything back.
When Yulia asked her about the photos, she straight-up admitted that she was sleeping with Nazar. She had no interest in keeping up with Nazar's lies.
Vlada Claimed It Was Not Her Problem
"She is his wife, not mine, what's the problem?"
Vlada reportedly said. She also said, "If I want to have sex, I'll have it." Vlada wasn't very remorseful, but at least she was honest.
Vlada Reminded Yulia It Takes Two To Tango
Not only did Vlada not show any remorse, but she allegedly said "Is he just a vegetable without free will? Don't make me laugh."
And even critiqued those shaming her for "Living in the 18th century."
A Private Instagram
Vlada made her Instagram account private after Yulia confronted her, but Yulia's job wasn't over yet.
It turns out, Vlada Abramovich wasn't the only woman he had been sleeping with.
There Were Others
Valda was just the beginning. Nazar had been having affairs with several women while he was married to Yulia.
When Yulia confronted him about the other women, Nazar gave the weakest response.
Allegedly Not 'Mentally Unfaithful'
Nazar said that he had "never been mentally unfaithful," as if that was supposed to make things better.
He also said that all of the other women knew that he was married.
Yulia The Fact Checker
Yulia didn't believe him for a second. She knew better than take him at his word by now.
Yulia reached out to the other women to hear their side of the story.
The Other Women
Yulia's suspicions were exactly correct.
After reaching out to the other women, all of them confirmed that they had no idea that Nazar was married. He had never told them about his wife.
They Were Sorry
These women were a bit kinder than Vlada.
"The other girls were much more pleasant," Yulia told Russia's Ren-TV, "one even crying on the phone to me, saying she had no idea he was married."
Her Story Made Headlines
Yulia and Nazar's fight played out on social media.
Their confrontation got a lot of media attention. Yulia suddenly found herself at the center of a national news story at one of the toughest moments in her life.
Yulia Is Inspiring Other Women
After going public with her story, Yulia met many other women who had the same sad fate.
She even said that many other "women supported me, posting that they were proud of my bravery."
The Relationship Is Over
Yulia broke up with Nazar. She asked for a divorce and the two of them are no longer together.
Yulia is just glad that she found out the truth about Nazar before she started a family with him.
Onwards And Upwards
Yulia says that she doesn't think Nazar will ever change, but hopes he can be happy if he finds a woman who can accept him for who he is.
That's very mature of her.
In The End, She Actually Thanked Vlada
After it was all said and done, Yulia took the high road and even posted a thank you to the woman who exposed the entire scandal.
Yulia post: "Thank you, Vlada Abramovich - you are an experienced woman who taught me a good lesson."
Many scorned women all over Russia were inspired by Yulia's story.
She said, "I openly discussed it with irony and sarcasm, so now they are ready to get rid of their unfaithful men too."
A New Man
Yulia has since very much moved on.
She has a new man in her life who treats her with respect. There are tons of pictures of the happy couple all over Yulia's Instagram page.
Yulia Isn't The Only One
Unfortunately for cheaters, with social media and technology becoming continually more present in our lives, more men and women are finding that technology is helping them catch their partners when being unfaithful.
That's not actually unfortunate, though, honestly.
Caught In A Selfie
If being caught on Instagram is bad, how about being caught cheating in a selfie? That's what TikTok user @sydneykinsch claimed.
In a viral video she shared how she noticed something suspicious in a photo her boyfriend of four years sent her.
Something In The Reflection
When she looked closer at his sunglasses, she saw that there was an unknown woman's legs in the reflection.
When Sydney called him out about it, he called her "crazy" and denied it all.
It All Fell Apart
One week after Sydney confronted her now ex-boyfriend he admitted he had been cheating on her for a month.
And not only that, but he had been with "like 5 people."
One Woman Enlisted The Police
In a story straight out of a soap opera, a woman in Colombia decided to take matters into her own hands when she suspected her husband of cheating.
In order to catch him though, she decided to stage a crime and call police.
The Police Tracked Down Her "Stolen" Car
The Colombian news reported that the woman called police screaming and claiming that her car had just been stolen. The description she gave police? Her husband.
Without knowing it was her husband, police took to the streets to find him.
A Chase To Catch A Cheater
The crazy thing is the police did track down the woman's cheating husband and he was with another woman.
Thinking he stolen the car, he was swiftly handcuffed in the middle of the street!
Alexa Helped This Woman Catch Her Husband
According to one Reddit user, known only as "beckystone1991" on the site, Amazon's Alexa device is the reason that she was able to discover her husband was having an ongoing affair with his coworker.
It Was More Than A Brief Affair
The woman posted that her husband had left her and their six-month-old daughter because he claimed to have had a brief "emotional adventure" with a woman he works with.
It turned out to be much more than that.
What Does Alexa Have To Do With It?
After her husband left her, the woman was setting up a new Amazon Alexa device in her house and she realized that her device was able to be linked to her husband's through their family Prime account.
"Alexa Play Beautiful Love Songs"
It turns out you can access the history of all the devices that are linked to an account, and she found the request for Alexa to "play beautiful love songs."
The woman knew that wasn't a request she had made, but that wasn't all.
It Was More Than Just Musical Sounds
Not only did her husband make the request, but Alexa had actually recorded the voice request plus what came afterwards...
Which happened to be the sound of her husband having an affair with his coworker.
It Wasn't An Emotional Affair
Her husband had initially confessed to having a short-lived emotional affair with his coworker and had been attempting to win his wife back.
That option is no longer on the table for him after this woman found out it was actually a physical affair that had been going on for much longer.
Alexa Is Always Listening
Some debated whether or not Alexa actually records your voice when you make a request to play music.
Beckystone1991 kindly reminded those users that she would not have willingly abandoned her marriage if it weren't for these recordings.
Glitch Or Not, It Happens
It's possible it was just a glitch in the technology that day, or maybe Alexa somehow knew that this particular moment was worth recording for future use.
Either way, technology once again proved to be smarter than the average cheater.
The Uses For Technology Are Endless
Technology is a blessing in many ways.
And athough it made not have been what Yulia or this Reddit user wanted to use their social media or technology for, it came in handy in the end.
