Oh Snap! This has to hurt.

From Ananova, the online news over in the UK comes this wonderful story:

Couple divorce after online 'affair'

A Bosnian couple are getting divorced after finding out they had been secretly chatting each other up online under fake names.

Sana Klaric, 27, and husband Adnan, 32, from Zenica, poured out their hearts to each other over their marriage troubles, and both felt they had found their real soul mate.

The couple met on an online chat forum while he was at work and she in an internet cafe, and started chatting under the names Sweetie and Prince of Joy.

They eventually decided to meet up - but there was no happy ending when they realised what had happened.

Now they are both filing for divorce - with each accusing the other of being unfaithful.

Sana said: "I thought I had found the love of my life. The way this Prince of Joy spoke to me, the things he wrote, the tenderness in every expression was something I had never had in my marriage.

"It was amazing, we seemed to be stuck in the same kind of miserable marriages - and how right that turned out to be.

"We arranged to meet outside a shop and both of us would be carrying a single rose so we would know the other.

"When I saw my husband there with the rose and it dawned on me what had happened I was shattered. I felt so betrayed. I was so angry."

Adnan said: "I was so happy to have found a woman who finally understood me. Then it turned out that I hadn't found anyone new at all.

"To be honest I still find it hard to believe that the person, Sweetie, who wrote such wonderful things to me on the internet, is actually the same woman I married and who has not said a nice word to me for years."

    I think they sound perfect for each other. They should stay together.

    It totally worked out for them in that Pina Colada song, back in the 70s.

    Spooney beat me to it. Damn.

  4. Spooney/Kirby: Great, now I have to go back and listen to the Pina Colada song!

  5. They should seek counseling. Obviously they're still attracted to each other. They just don't communicate.

  6. When hubby and I went the Jimmy Buffet concert I told him the Pina Colada song would never work out in real life. You just proved me right. Thanks!

  7. I always hated the pina colada song for that very reason.

  8. Spooney's right. If they realized they were each other's soulmates, why didn't they decide to work on the marriage?

  9. I read that and had the same thought-- wasn't that the "Pina Colada" song?

  10. that's funny, they seemed to be getting along so well.

    Johnny-- you took the joke right outta me mouth!!
