What Are the Odds?

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."

Maybe if they spent as much time cultivating their REAL LIFE marriage as they did their online affairs they wouldn't be divorcing. If you like Pina Coladas...

I imagine this as a Nora Ephron movie. Thx for the laugh.

Wow! That is amazing. And how sad that they can't see that with a little better communication they could be Prince and Sweetie, happily ever after, in real life. So sad.

I was humming that song as I was reading your blog, how funny to see you mention it too! Great minds and all that! I was in a class on interpersonal relationships in college - one point was that we spend 80% of our time bitching about the 20% of our relationship we aren't happy with. I know....I'm guilty.
If Chris and I were the ones there in the cafe with roses, I think first we'd probably laugh, then we'd both say "I knew it was you all the time!!" Then we'd go home and make love for about a week. Hey...sounds like a good idea! Bye!

I read about this! I was amused that she had the nerve to feel "betrayed" and he "hadn't found anyone new at all." You'd think that because they each found their soulmate, they'd realize that they actually had something together, but no.

I agree. Seeing how they "saw" each other in this new light, I don't understand why they wouldn't want to try to be "Prince" and "Sweetie" in real life to each other.
