Wife’s story of how her husband had an affair with a 15 year old girl appears in THAT’S LIFE magazine this week over two pages.
This is the third time I have sold Marie Bentley’s story. Today, her story of how she discovered her husband was having an affair with a teenage schoolgirl appears over a double page of this popular women’s weekly magazine, as well as the cover.
Having discovered husband Chris Bentley was cheating on her, she went to the police. There, she told them how he was having underage sex with the girl, who was the same age as their own eldest child.
Chris was then jailed for 18 months and although they had been married for 22 years, Marie still feels the betrayal was so great, that she has no regrets about turning him in.
The real life story in That’s Life magazine today includes previously unseen photos and an update from previous stories – Marie’s story has previously appeared through sell my story website Featureworld in the Daily Mirror and Reveal magazine. Both times it was also spread over two pages.
Relationship stories, especially those about betrayal, affairs, adultery and infidelity, are extremely popular with women’s feature sections of national newspapers and women’s magazines. I am currently looking for the following for up and coming features:
* Couples where one spouse has been unfaithful – but the couple have managed to stay together and the affair has made their own relationship stronger.
* Women who’ve had an affair with their boss (maybe it blossomed into a full blown relationship), or someone much older or younger than themselves.
* Sisters where both have been out with the same man – or maybe you no longer speak after your sister had an affair with your partner.
* Women who’ve had a holiday romance – perhaps it didn’t work out or maybe it did.
* Men and women who left their partners or spouses for someone else.
* Love rat stories.
If this is you and you are happy to be photographed, then it is possible like Marie’s story, above, your story could not only appear in a national newspaper but could also be placed in a multiple deal and appear in two women’s magazines as well.

Name and shame story about how Vanessa Finn got revenge on her cheating husband appears in PICK ME UP magazine this week.
One of the bonuses of selling your story through a media agent is that one week your story can appear in the Daily Mail newspaper and then it can be printed (with an interviewee’s permission) in a totally different way in a women’s magazine.
Regular readers might recall Vanessa’s story in the Daily Mail in December. Then she told how for eighteen years she was a supportive army wife. She believed she and husband Alan Finn, were happy. But then he confessed he was having an affair. Worse, he changed his army status to ‘single’. This meant as he no longer qualified for married quarters, Vanessa and their two daughters had to leave their home within 93 days.
She didn’t leave fast enough and was fined by the Ministry of Defence for trespass and cleaning.
Following the news story in the Daily Mail, I was contacted by a number of women’s magazines who wanted to know if Vanessa would like to do a follow-up story.
And today her story about what has happened since – including how she got revenge on his mistress, Lesley Murphy, is recounted in Pick me Up magazine. There Vanessa’s story goes over two pages. It was also made the front page of this well-read women’s mag.
Vanessa says: “Getting my story off my chest and telling the truth about what happened in both a national newspaper and a women’s magazine, has made me feel much more confident. In fact, it’s been a liberating experience and I am so glad I did it. I now feel able to put this behind me and carry on with the rest of my life.”

Vanessa Finn’s extraordinary true story about how she was fined for trespass and cleaning when she failed to leave her marital home fast enough was printed in the DAILY MAIL on Saturday.
For eighteen years Vanessa Finn was a supportive army wife. She and her husband, Alan Finn, had two daughters together and she believed they had a happy marriage. During this time, he rose through the ranks eventually becoming a Sgt Major and they were granted an army house – a substantial four bedroom detached one.
But in May this year he confessed he’d been having an affair and devastatingly told her he no longer wanted to be married.
Yet if that wasn’t bad enough, her husband then changed his army status to ‘single’. This meant he no longer qualified for married accommodation and under army rules, Vanessa and the children were given just 93 days to vacate their home.
When she couldn’t find anywhere to live fast enough, she was then fined for trespass and invoiced by the Ministry of Defence for cleaning.
Vanessa is now campaigning for the army to be more compassionate when marriages break down. After all, she feels it unfair that despite being the wronged wife, and despite supporting her husband and the army for years, she was not only forced out of the marital home (fortunately friends and family ensured she wasn’t homeless) but was also fined for leaving too slowly.
Vanessa says: “I was very happy with my story in the Daily Mail. I have had lots of calls about it from well wishers and friends. I am very happy I went ahead and pleased with the way my story was handled in the newspaper.”
Vanessa’s story will shortly be appearing in a magazine. Meanwhile, if you have a story to sell about betrayal, adultery or an affair, do let me know here: Sell your story
Marie Bentley’s emotional real-life story appeared in the DAILY MIRROR newspaper and REVEAL magazine yesterday.
When Marie Bentley discovered husband Chris was having an affair, that was bad enough. However, when she found out he was seeing a 15 year old girl – the same age as their eldest daughter – she was not only devastated but disgusted.
So she made the hardest decision of her life – she decided to call in the Police. And last month Chris was jailed after admitting sex with an under age girl.
Despite this Marie, who was married to Chris for 18 years – they met when they were teenagers – was still so upset, she wanted to tell her story for justice.
Importantly, she wanted to gain the most publicity for her story.
With this in mind, I arranged for her story to appear in the Daily Mirror and weekly women’s magazine Reveal. I have also gained Marie another opportunity and a follow-up to her story will shortly be appearing in another popular women’s magazine. She has also been asked for radio and TV interviews.
Marie says: “I was extremely pleased with both stories in the newspaper and magazine. They were both very well done. I don’t know how myself and my daughters will move on from this but I do feel telling my story was the right way forward.”
