To have and to hold

March 2nd, 2009 · 104 comments

To be honest, I find this note — from an anonymous submitter in Raleigh, N.C.. — to be kind of depressing. So let me just say this: if you’ve recently broken up with a significant other and have been thinking, “Hmm, maybe a heartfelt note is the way to win him/her back!” — JUST. SAY. NO.

Anyway, our submitter writes: “When my husband unpacked his belongings from his ex-wife’s house, he kept finding little ‘surprises.’ For example, although they did not go to high school together, she had signed his senior yearbook, and little notes and reproductions of wedding pictures were stuck in books and in pockets of his clothes. Our favorite was this note we found in his camera case.”

Never to be Replaced! Always #1 Your one and only Wife #1 To have and to hold

(Yes, yes, it looks like “to have anal to hold.”)

    “to have and” looks like “to have anal”.

      YES! Also, if you’ve recently broken up with a significant other and have been thinking, “hmm, maybe a heartfelt note is the way to win him/her back!”…JUST. SAY. NO.

      …this is the quoting the original post thread, isn’t it?

      It took three tries to see “and” instead of “anal” there. Probably says something about me.

      “To have anal to hard” maybe? What ever happened to traditional wedding vows?

      Way to validate the divorce wife #1.

      If you’re leaving these kinds of notes for someone who’s decided to leave you and who’s CLEARLY with someone else, then you’re not doing it to win them back. The notes were left maliciously, meant for the new wife, not the ex-husband, to remind her that she came second and to plant seeds of doubt.

      Wife #2 is just putting on a brave face. I think most 2nd wives are a bit intimidated by the 1st wife. And if this is a case of infidelity that led to divorce and a new marriage, you know #2 will eventually go crazy, because she knows that someday she’ll be the ex leaving pathetic notes for #3 to find.

    I organize clothing drives a couple of times a year and Papa’s ex, knowing this, offered to donate some items. I always go through donated items because some things that people donate really need to be in the garbage. So, I’m going through bags of clothing and I didn’t even know what used to belong to who(m) and there in one of the bags is the wedding album from Papa’s 1st marriage! She also “donated” several pairs of her old undies! I’m not sure exactly what she was trying to convey but I realized that day what a scary ride I had gotten on.

    This whole situation definitely needs more information. As far as I’m concerned, wife #2 must feel threatened if she needs to post the note on this site, knowing full well her smile is in the picture. If she wasn’t she would have left the note (and wife #1) alone knowing how sad and pathetic she is. Considering wife 1 had the time and ability to pack this in husband’s bags, I’d bet there was something threatening going on. Hell, wife 1 might have been writing love notes in response to husbands behavior!

    When a friend of mine broke up with her boyfriend, before she moved out she took 200 post it notes and wrote “FUCK YOU” on all of them and hid them all over his house. In DVD cases, in books, in the cabinets. She told me she hopes that in 10 years he opens a book he hasn’t touched in a decade and is reminded of how much she hates him. Very classy.

      It was a creative energy release.

    What I don’t get is how is he with wife #2 so soon after wife #1 that he hasn’t got his stuff out of the house yet? Shady dealings must have been going on there, our illustrious husband must have been cheating on wife the first. In which case he’s even more lucky to get his stuff back, and even more sad that she wants him back to this extent.

      I’m going to give an alternate view on this (only because the alternate is what I experienced). When my husband and I got together, he had been separated and going through divorce proceedings for TWO and and HALF YEARS! Ex-wifey kept dragging out the proceedings because she wanted to bleed him dry from lawyers fees (even though she was the one who had/made more money, and she cheated on him). In all this time, the only possesions he was allowed to have were his clothes, all his personal memorabilia and mementos were kept at their old place of residence as a result of one of the many court orders. The divorce went on for almost four years. In that time, hubbie and I fell in love and he proposed. We were just waiting and waiting for the divorce to become final so that we could be married. We finally were able to get married about a month after the divorce was finalized.

      All I can say is, I thank the stars that my hubbie did not ever procreate with Cthulhu (the ex) cause she was just as crazy as this broad. After five years of being married, she still calls the house and leaves nasty messages for me.

      All that being said, this (to me) seems like a plausible situation. Not saying it couldn’t have been a situation born from infidelity though.

      Well that sounds just as plausible, I didn’t know these things could take as long as that, I didn’t take the divorce into account. Glad you finally got together though, good luck for the next 5 years and beyond!

    Congratulations, future ex-wife #2! Hope you don’t leave anything that the woman he’s banging now can mock.

    One day I hope to be a crazy ex-wife like this… Wife #1 has totally given me something to aspire to…

    Of course I probably would include all sorts of embarrassing photos (well, now that I think of it, they would be more embarrassing to me, since you can’t see HIS face…) and possibly a dead, skinned cat or something.

    I do crazy so good! :D

    anon – If you are going to go to the trouble of submitting a note like this, why not take a better picture so we can see the entire note instead of blocking part of it with your big, fat wrist???

    Doesn’t any think that maybe, since they found this note in the camera case, that this note was describing the camera?

    Perhaps it’s their “one and only” camera of a very durable and long lasting model(hence, “never to be replaced”), with convenient hand grips that let you hold it(“to have and to hold”(or it’s a colonoscopy camera if we go with the “to have anal to hold” interpretation)).

    Wife #1 was merely being a 1st-rate pal by pointing out all of these cool camera features for Wife #2.

    You ever hear the joke about the man who goes on a weekend fishing trip, and when he comes home, his wife asks how the fishing was? He tells some tall tale and she says “Oh really? Then you woulda noticed the note in your tackle box, you cheating bastard!”

    That is *so* what this note is.

    “Honey, I’m going on a photography trip. Organized through the local church. Really.” Meanwhile, he’s feverishly texting with future Ex-Other-Woman about which seedy hotel to meet up at.

    At which point, then-wifey (who’s already had her suspicions) sticks a note in his camera case. “Hmm,” she thinks to herself, “If he’s not cheating on me, I’ll just be offering to have and hold anal sex. And I’ve *never* known him to turn down the poop chute.”

      I’ve only heard the story about the man going out in the Bay fishing on Christmas Eve leaving his pregnant wife at home, then she “went out to walk the dog” and turned up missing…

      Scott Peterson is a lying bastard.

    Anonymous submitter needs to wake up and smell the astroglide. Hubby is still tagging wife #1 and she’s letting him play the back nine.

    How many more trips does he have planned to get his “stuff”, Toots?

      As wife #2 my husband better be willing to join me in mocking wife #1! As a matter of fact, he’d better instigate the mockfest on occasion!

      As a wife #2 myself, I don’t know wife #1 well enough to mock her (they divorced many years before we met). I wish I DID know her better, so we could rip her a new one from time to time! (er, wait–maybe he took care of that already, if she’s anything like the note-writer…)

      How much younger can she be without the husband ending up in the clink? Wife #1 writes like she’s about 14.

    Wife no.2 sounds insecure. The note seems like more of a F-U note rather than a pining one.

    Besides, who would be wife no. 2. You married a man who clearly can’t keep his vows*

    *Yada yada, his first wife was a psycho bitch. But readers, he MARRIED her so much have some good!

    Hahaha, Bret & Colleen, I KNOW YOU! How’s “Raleigh, NC,” in California?

    Bret did totally cheat on his ex-wife with the chick in the photo, but to be honest, his ex-wife is pretty crazy. Still, he could have just broken up with her like a man instead of cheating.

    Oh, and they’re not actually married. I know because she hasn’t blogged about it and she blogs about every other goddamn thing even though she’s 40 years old.

    for some reason, the first thing i thought after i read this note was that it was kinda creepy that notes would pop up randomly in their house… makes me wonder if the notes were put there AFTER the guy moved into wife #2′s house

    I’m guilty of being an ex leaving a note.

    Story goes, we were together for three he dumped me after cheating on me a married woman and a girl or two from work. Don’t know all the details, dont care anymore.

    Anyway, packed up all my crap to move interstate and start anew, but I left a few bits of peices of my stuff that I didn’t want or need. Among that I left my (8 y/o beginning to crappit) fridge.

    The fridge is on one of those wall cavities, just before I left I pulled the thing out, wrote a lovely ‘Fuck you’ in nail polish and pushed it back in.
    Passive aggressive yes, but it did give me some satisfaction.

    The notes saying things like ‘I was number one, I hit that before you did’ do seem pretty desperate. But if you’re an emotional mess, you arent exactly going to be thinking in the most logical manner, its more of a case of ‘I’d like to stab him in the eyes, but maybe if I leave enough of these notes he’ll do it himself’.

    His ex is a nutcase. Do they still give you money for dropping people off at the institution?
