Hubby and I have each other on Google Latitude and we like to find out where each other is for the heck of it. We have no trust issues or fear that the other is being dishonest. It’s a fun thing for us to have, and also helps us track where the other is when we’re meeting up somewhere.

Here’s my question… Just because you saw her somewhere she didn’t say she was going does not mean you caught her cheating… There are times where I’ve told SO I’m going to go to a friends house or something when really I’m planning a big surprise for him. I may be picking up a present for him or getting something together I’m not ready for him to see. If he was following me and assumed I was cheating how awkward would that conversation be…

I guess I would need to have REAL proof to know my SO was cheating. I would need to see texts, or emails, or clothing or him actually cheating to believe it.

I’m thinking that many of you have never found yourself in the very sick position of suspecting that your spouse is being unfaithful. 

It’s not right to track your spouse because you are suspicious, but if there’s nothing to hide it shouldn’t be a big deal.  If my fh had a hard time trusting, I would understand it’s likely because he’s been on the receiving end of many lies.  Whatever it takes to make him overcome his trust issues (or mine) would be fine with me. 

That being said, I can tell you that most cheaters are far sneakier than you can imagine, and their spouses often don’t have a clue.  When I divorced my ex, I was approached by more interested married men than I can count…people I couldn’t BELIEVE would want to cheat on their partner.  There are quite a few wives I know that might want to activate that ap on their husbands phone.

I don’t have a problem with the app, but I wouldn’t use it to track my husband.

@Aure: Just heard about this on Fox News.  Not sure I’d ever download the app, but that’s kind of crazy that he happened to find her cheating.

I’m ambivalent. I mean, I don’t necessarily condone tracking your spouse, but it seems like it shouldn’t be a big deal if you have nothing to hide.

@GDub: I agree!!  I have to admit I have some insecurities and I am cautious when in a relationship and I have to tell you it comes from getting hit on by so many married men.

I am a fairly attractive woman and I get hit on on a regular basis and large portion of them are married men.

I have had men tell me they would leave their wives for me. No, I am not a huge flirt!! I love my man to pieces!!  

i just ran into one of my ex’s friends a few weeks ago. he just got married this year.He has been texting me like a love sick puppy!!

I tell them all I am living with a man and in a great relationship… most don’t care : (

I trust the man I am with 100%. I have never trusted like that before. Their are lots of loyal lovong men out there but ladies please keep your head out of the sand for the ones that aren’t!!

They are not going to make it obvious for you. be aware.

@lovekiss: how do you use google maps for this? hubs and I have droids, and it would be nice to be able to track him home from work rather than talking or texting while he’s driving. That’s a great idea!

@MrsSl82be: It’s the Google Latitude feature. Truth be told, Mr. LK set it up for us, so I don’t kow how to do it. It’s listed on my Apps screen as “Latitude”.

Huh – you would think loading a tracking app on someone else’s phone without permission would be illegal.

I would only do something like that if i knew and needed the proof.. which i never hope is the case. I’d be destroyed for a lifetime.

I’ve put keylogger on my computer to get the evidence i needed on my ex.. so when he tried to call me “crazy” (a mans fav defense mech.), I could throw something in his face that proved him to be a liar and move on.

My Fiance was joking that he was going to kill time on our wedding day by going to a strip club.  So I told him I was going to use this app to make sure he didn’t, lol. 

But in all seriousness, the only times I need to hide my location are when I’m doing something as a surprise for him.  I like the ability to track him, but for simple, innocent stuff.  For example, sometimes he stays at work later than me and I want to start dinner but I’m not sure where he is.  Or, a few weeks ago he helped his sister move from Portland ME to Providence RI and it involved lots of driving around 3 different states, the day before Hurricane Irene, and he was sick.
