There's no good way to find out that your partner is cheating on you. Whether you catch them in the act, find suss text messages or hear from a friend, you're still likely to be devastated by the act of betrayal.
However, there are situations which are certainly worse than others and Vikkie from Surrey can attest to that.
The 30-year-old harmlessly picked up her phone when she got a call from her fiancé, Ty Smith.
Lo and behold, instead of the conversation starting with something like 'hey babe how are you', Vikkie was confronted with the groans and grunts of her soon-to-be husband having sex with another woman.
"When I found out I was absolutely reeling," she said.
"I felt anger and sadness. My heart was melting but at the same time I was going red in the face."
The pair has been together since 2013 after meeting on a building site. A year later, Ty got down on one knee and popped the question with a £120 engagement ring. Some people might scoff at that price tag, and insist it be much higher, but who are we to judge.
Well, I guess we can kind of judge when it's revealed that the 35-year-old was spending more on escorts than he did on said ring.
But when she got that horrifying phone call, she didn't immediately call him out on his cheating - she wanted hard evidence.
Vikkie said: "I wanted to have the full facts before approaching him. I logged in and saw a bunch of numbers I didn't know.
"He was calling them every so often, he must have been gagging for it - the calls were over and over again.
"I asked him innocently, 'Who's Amy in Bracknell?' He tried to play dumb and eventually said he was at the escort's house on a job, doing some guttering.
"He eventually insisted that he had just had a massage with a happy ending but finally he admitted to sleeping with her.
Oh yeah buddy, like that's much better.
But apparently Ty tried to explain to Vikkie that escorts were better because it mean there were 'no feelings, just sex'.
"He was paying these women £130 for an hour of sex," she added, "which is more than he paid for the ring which is supposed to signify a lifetime."
The 30-year-old says she's dumped the bloke and was relieved when her sexual health check-up came back with no STIs.
Ty said: "I don't have anything to say to Vikkie.
"I've said sorry to her lots of times.
"Of course I regret seeing escorts because I lost my relationship over it.
"I don't know how many I saw - maybe two or three."
