Technology can be utilized in lots of different ways, many of them for personal gain. But while tech is well known for allowing people in relationships to hook up, it can also be used to catch a wayward partner in the act. And monitoring each other is something a lot of couples do.
According to The Telegraph, researchers from the London School of Economics, the University of Oxford, and Nottingham Trent University, conducted a study of 1,000 British couples. Titled ‘Netiquette within married couples’, the study looked at how couples use technology to effectively spy on what their partner is up to.
The results suggest that one in five spouses check their other half’s texts or emails. 10 percent of women and six percent of men also admitted to having checked the browser history of their partners. While one percent of both sexes had used computer monitoring software or posed as someone else to try and catch a partner out.
