BEAVERTON, Ore., July 17 (UPI) -- An Oregon single mother's sign advertising the sale of her home admits her husband left the family "for a 22-year-old."

Elle Zober, a mother of two attempting to sell her Beaverton home, posted a sign in the house's front yard Friday that says: "Husband left us for a 22-year-old. House for sale by scorned, slightly bitter, newly single owner," KPTV, Portland, Ore., reported Tuesday.

"Adulterers need not apply," the sign reads, along with Zober's contact information.

Zober said her marriage of 10 years fell apart a few months ago when her husband had an affair.

"I want everyone to know I am hurt. I am scorned. I am bitter. I am sad," said Zober.

She said the sign is not a means of revenge against her ex.

"I just thought it was truth in advertising," she said. "I want people to know it was a family home. It was well-loved and it was well taken care of. I want another family who will love it and care for it to move in."

Zober said her ex-husband, who did not respond to calls for comment, approved the sign.

"As long as it sells the house, we're good," she said. "Neither of us wants the house to end up in foreclosure."
