Is Cheating Worth Your Life???

Husband Says “I Love You” as His Wife Takes His Life for Cheating

Tyra HolmesThe pain of infidelity can be gruesome, but there is no excuse for resorting to violence.  A woman has been arrested for killing her husband for cheating on her.  Tyra Holmes, 26, found text messages on her husband Michael’s cell phone and the messages appeared to be from another woman.  This led her to finally figure out that he was doing things he shouldn’t be doing in her marriage, leading her to take his life.

The incident occurred after the two got into an argument over the source and nature of the messages, with her eventually going into the kitchen and grabbing a knife.  He grabbed her at the top of the staircase, trying to get her under control.  That’s when she stabbed him in the chest.

“You stabbed me,” he said. Realizing what had just happened, the husband and wife told each other, “I love you.”

Shortly after being stabbed, the man died in the hospital.  Holmes has been arrested for first-degree murder in the death of her husband Michael, who died at the age of 35.   The woman is being held without bail.

“He was good to her and his kids and she murdered him for a senseless  reason, a senseless reason, she took the life of my brother for a senseless  reason,”Alexis Jewell, Michael’s sister, said to NBC Miami.

Holmes says that she blacked out after she raised the knife to her husband.  But she admitted  that she stabbed him and simply couldn’t control her actions.  Her sister took the  kids initially, because Holmes feared losing custody.   She was accused of neglect last fall.  But the kids are now in foster care, as the two year marriage ended in tragedy.

If this happens to you, seek help before you do something you’ll surely regret.  The kids always suffer the  most.  Here are some tips on how to handle jealousy so you don’t do something you’ll regret.

  1. It struck me as odd that you included “tips on how to handle jealousy.” I thought you might have provided tips on fidelity! Interesting topic though. Been happening since the beginning of time.

    • Thanks so much for your comment. This post was shared from another blog. I agree tips on how to handle infidelity would be good but also I feel the tips on handling jealousy were good as well because, as we read, some people really have a hard time dealing with it.

      I think I may have to write one about infidelity though. Thanks again!

      • Right I see your point. I guess because they never said he physically cheated but from the text she read it appears she assumed he had and flew into a jealous rage. Who knows maybe the argument persued because in the past there were issues with this same person he was texting. Either way I can agree that both topics could have been touched on.

        Hmmm…so if it was just a text and no physical contact would you consider that to be cheating?
