Breaking up with a woman who you had no feelings for is never an easy task. One might wish they were dead, but don’t ever go that road. Faking your death isn’t a good answer either, just ask our U.S. Navy.

Meet Michael P. Ward II, a Navy officer who was recently dismissed as commander of a nuclear submarine. Instead of breaking up with his mistress like a man, he decided that faking his death seemed like much smarter idea.

So how does one get a plan like this in motion you ask? Michael set up a fake email account to email his mistress. He sent emails as a fictitious co-worker named Bob that say that Michael died unexpectedly.

The woman was in for the surprise of her life when she set out on a three-and-a-half-hour drive to Ward’s former residence in Burke, Virginia, to offer her condolences and found out the Navy officer was not really in fact dead. The new owner told her that Ward had moved toConnecticutto take command of a submarine. Ward met the woman, who remains unnamed, through an online dating service in October. Reports don’t mention whether the woman knew that Ward was married.”

Michael received a letter from Pittsburgh’s submarine group inGrotonreprimanding the officer for adultery and other military violations. So lesson learned, man it up and don’t fake your death.
