This distraught bride found her husband’s online dating profile just two days before their wedding…

An Australian woman has told of her shock at discovering her fiance’s Tinder profile just days before their wedding. After being together for nearly seven years, Tiana told 9Honey that she felt totally blindsided by the shock discovery and decided to call off the wedding.

No Warning

Like any couple, Tiana and her partner Matt had a few minor disagreements when planning the wedding, but she says that in general it was smooth sailing and they were both looking forward to the day. Just two days before the wedding, however, Tiana’s bridesmaid Anne took her aside. “My best friend Anne took me aside and said she needed to talk to me,” Tiana said. “What she showed me shocked me so much I still can’t believe it.” Anne showed Tiana a Tinder profile, and after scrolling through a few of the photos, the realisation that it was her fiance Matt began to sink in. “The way he described himself was as though he was a young, single man,” she said.

Secrets and Lies

According to a study by Slater and Gordon Lawyers, 35% of people already in a relationship admit to using a dating app, with boredom and lack of attention cited as the most common reasons, and men were more likely to the use apps while in a relationships than women. Tiana says calling off the wedding was the only option after finding Matt’s profile, telling him that he would be responsible for informing their guests of the decision and, most importantly, the reason why. We’re pretty sure the awkward conversations alone would be enough to make Matt regret his dishonesty!

Perhaps the most disturbing part of this story is just how common it is, even amongst couples in long term relationships. Maybe the seven year itch isn’t a total myth after all…

  • Devastating. I’ve been cheated on before and it has really affected my ability to trust people. Even people I thought would never lie to me have, finding out years later they were not the person I thought they were. Luckily this woman found out before her wedding.


  • I wonder if he told the people the entire truth of why the wedding was cancelled. It is fortunate the bridesmaid browsed through Tinder.


  • How terrible for the bride to be! But there would be no wedding after finding that out.


  • Bugger. Him that is not the situation. The situation is cruel. I don’t get it, talk about no honesty in a relationship. I wonder at peoples reactions when he had to explain.


  • Wow ! Lucky she found out before the wedding!


  • Hopefully she made him pay for all of the lost deposits too.


  • Just glad she found out what a cad he was before they got married. I’d make sure everyone knew why the wedding was called off. If you leave the reason up to him, he’s going to make out the problem wasn’t with him.


  • wow she dodged a bullet there!


  • Wow! Wow! and Wow! This would be so shocking and such a betrayal. I just can’t imagine.


  • Yes, I have been completely blindsided in a relationship unfortunately and I am very glad to hear she called off the wedding. As hard as it may be, it is actually a blessing in disguise.


  • Poor thing, but hey, better to find out before the wedding than after!


  • If you can’t trust your husband to be, then best to end it before getting married.


  • Ummm the article never said, but what if it’s a profile that he had before they were together and he forgot about it, did she ever ask?


  • That’s terrible just 2 days out being husband and wife
    But good for her


  • So glad she found out before the wedding!
