To be sure, the creation of the internet has made the quality of our lives a bit better. However, given the fact that Facebook is mentioned in one third of all divorce cases - who would have guessed that the two groups who have benefited the most from the onslaught of the digital era would be divorce lawyers and private investigators who specialize in wayward spouses?
As a point of interest, you might be keen to learn that the term "faithful spouses" is fed into Google 170 times every month, while "cheating spouses" is queried 301,000 times within that same period.
"is he cheating": 90,500
"how to cheat on my husband": 22,200.
And this is where we commence our segue to this well-illustrated article that tells the story of Bernard Laker, a private investigator from the pre-computer age whose detective skills were steadily relied upon by numerous women who held their husband's fidelity in serious doubt.
