Emma Brady , a 35 year old conference organiser from the UK said she had no idea her husband was looking for a divorce. She found out soon enough though, when a friend who had read the wall post her husband left for her called to console her.
Brady spoke to the Daily Mail about her embarrassment and pain, ‘The first I knew about it was when I received a phone call at work from my best friend, who lives in Denmark,’ she said.
‘She asked me if I was okay because of what Neil had put on Facebook: “Neil Brady has ended his marriage to Emma Brady”. I was shell-shocked. ‘I have had people who I haven’t spoken to for years contacting me asking what is going on.
What upset me the most was not the fact that Neil had written he had ended his marriage, but the comment from a girl in Canada who said: “You are better off out of it”. It hurt me that he had been speaking to someone else about it.’
Neil Brady, who is now living with his mother, insists he had talked to his wife about separation. ‘I’d had enough of her’.
This bizarre story adds to the other we recently covered when a wife’s “relationship status” change on Facebook triggered her husband to murder.
