Tracking a Spouse Using GPS Technology

Sometimes relationships remind me of a game of cat-and-mouse.

As cheating spouses rely on technology such as instant messaging, text messaging, private phone numbers, and online services to help facilitate an affair, suspicious spouses fight back with computer monitoring software, keyloggers, hidden gps devices, and more recently, cell phone tracking services.

Yes, you can now track a spouse's movements through their cell phone.

Unfortunately, as Robert Sullivan discovered, in this high-tech game of cat-and-mouse, the mouse usually catches a break.

Robert Sullivan was convicted of illegally using a GPS device to track his ex-wife's movements.

While it's not illegal to use technology to help facilitate an affair, more often than not, it is illegal to use technology to monitor a spouse's activities without his or her consent (see, gps tracking cheating spouse).

and GPS can't be deemed accurate either-so I wouldn't go pounding on a door thinking your partners inside with their lover. your "GUT" if you know your mate is enough to let you know that there is trouble. Hire someone else to find out for you but be prepared with what your plans are once you have evidence of cheating in your hands.
