Man And Wife Looking For New Love Interests On Facebook Didn't Realise They Were Flirting With Each Other

Fierce argument between man and woman

This is literally out of a movie (no, we mean it, go watch Mitr, My Friend after reading this piece, if you already haven't seen it).

An unhappily married couple in Bareilly recently took to Facebook (using pseudonyms) to find new love. However, fate played the estranged couple a cruel hand, by hooking them up without either one realising that they were actually chatting up their spouse the whole time.

After several months of getting to "know" each other, the couple decided to meet at a restaurant, reported The Times of India. Unfortunately, instead of a fairy tale ending, a nasty argument broke out when the aghast husband and his equally horrified wife realised they had been caught red-handed for the same crime.

Police had to be called in to separate the duo once the situation got out of hand. However, since they could not find any sections under which they could book the couple (LOL), the cops instead decided to send them for a counselling session at the Family Counselling Centre.

A chuckling cop, perhaps, summed up the situation best by saying, “such things happen when your luck is bad.”
