(Scroll down for video) A mother of two children decided to end her life after learning that her husband was having an affair.

The woman took her own life and the life of her 4-year-old daughter at her home in Taiwan, after her marriage of ten years collapsed.

The woman, who was identified as Glenda, discovered that her husband Jiang, was having an affair at his job. He recently began working in China.

Glenda traveled to China, to try to save their marriage, but her attempts failed and her husband chose to stay with the other woman.

When she realized that her marriage was over, Glenda returned home with her 4-year-old daughter and 8-year-old son.

At home, the 47-year-old mother lit charcoal before hanging herself in the bathroom. Her daughter died of carbon monoxide poisoning as a result of the burning coal.

Her son woke up from the smoke, but it was too late to save his family.

Glenda left a note written in English, where she expressed her love for her husband, and she explained that she can no longer take this pain and the heartache he had caused her.
