Stranger Than Fiction

It’s an almost laughable headline – “woman googles how to murder her husband.” Though the truth may be stranger than fiction, clickbait is precisely that – bait to get you to look at the story, a hook to spread it as far as possible so that news sites get as much traffic and, therefore, ad revenue as they can. But behind these humorous clickbait headlines are always stories of lives cut short and tragedies befalling people who just wanted to love and care for their spouses, only for them to turn around and commit the most permanent of all betrayals against them.
