How to catch your husband cheating during summer vacations, straight from an ex-mistress
Summer is a great time for vacations and fun in the sun. Unfortunately, it's also the prime time for wives to catch their husbands cheating on them ... at least according, to self-confessed ex-mistress Sarah Symonds.
Symonds has made an entire career out of her former life as the "other woman," even creating a "Wife School" to help women prevent their husbands from cheating. But in a recent piece for the U.K.'s Daily Mail, Symonds says that summer time--and specifically late July and August--is the "tried-and tested time of year to catch a cheating husband in action." Why? Read on to find out!

According to Symonds, you're more likely to catch your man in action with another woman during this season because he'll be forced to balance his mistress with increased quality time with his family--like summer trips. She writes:
Any CMM [cheating married man] worth his salt knows he has to keep strong communication going with his mistress while he is on vacation, so that she will still be there waiting for him when he gets back from his "intense" family time.
In order for you to use this to your advantage, Symonds goes on to share "signs to look for and tips you need to know to stay safe and humiliation-free this summer." So what are they exactly? From the looks of things, her advice involves a whole lot of spying. Symonds urges women to check their man's phone, particularly if he keeps "popping out to 'call the office.' " And if he claims to need "alone time," she suggests looking through bills and receipts to make sure he went where he said he would and wasn't just on the phone with his mistress.
"Knowing that a CMM has to work hard to keep you and another woman happy while he is away, your work is almost done for you," she writes. "All you need to do is sit back, relax, and watch his behavior."
Yikes! I admit, her theory that it's easier to trap men in a lie when they're on summer vacations and therefore, spending more time than usual around their families makes sense. That being said, the rest of her methods are questionable and they definitely don't sound healthy. Keeping track of your guy's behavior if you're already suspicious of him cheating is one thing. But it sounds like what she is advocating is acting like a paranoid lunatic, who feels the need to interrogate their husband over every phone call and outing. Who wants to spend their summer vacation--or any time for that matter--doing that? Call me crazy, but aren't relationships and marriages about trust?
Regardless, at least, she doesn't seem to be blaming the wives for their husband's potential infidelity. Still, I think I'd take her advice with a grain of salt--both during the summer and at all other times.
