It is widely accepted that cheating on a partner, especially if you happen to be married to them, is one of the worst things you can do.

In many instances, cheating damages the other partner’s self-worth and the trust he or she feels in their future relationships.

The moment you discover, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that your significant other has been straying, it’s very natural to feel rage.

And although two wrongs don’t make a right, some scorned partners will try to punish their cheating spouse, and their lover, by getting into a physical altercation with them.

That’s exactly what happened at Jose Cordova airport near the Colombian city of Medellin.

A furious woman attacked her unfaithful husband’s mistress after finding out that the pair were planning to sneak off on a romantic getaway:

Shocked bystanders watched as the unexpected and dramatic incident unfolded at the airport.

According to some sources, the man and his lady on the side were moments away from flying off to Cartagena, a popular vacation destination on Colombia’s Caribbean coast.

So how did it all go down? Well, the scorned wife shamelessly grabs her husband’s lover by the hair and drags her away from the check-in desk at the airport in Colombia.

The video shows how the cheating husband attempts to separate his girlfriend from his wife’s grasp as she relentlessly holds on.

The unidentified wife can be heard shouting in Spanish: “On Saturday you were going to take me out with the little one and today you’re taking her.”

“Get rid of her or I’ll cause a scandal right now. I’m not going to let go. Hit me if you want so they throw you in jail.”

The jilted wife also calls her husband’s other woman a “prepago”, or prostitute, and accuses her husband of being a “fake and a liar”.

And it certainly wasn’t just the other passengers who caught an eyeful of the jealousy-fuelled attack.

An employee at the airport watched the fierce altercation and it is still unknown whether staff eventually intervened in an attempt to break up the fight.

The very gripping footage went viral soon after it was uploaded earlier this week and has now been viewed over 100,000 times.

It is still unknown if the couple were able to make their flight in the end, however, even if they did, we can’t imagine the following few days would have been much fun for either of the three parties.
