A MAN explained that he was horrified when he found out his wife Claire was spying on her ex and his new girlfriend with hidden cameras.
The husband, 34, explained that his wife's ex-husband Adam, who is also the father of her child, started dating a new woman eight months ago and his wife was appalled.
While her ex was away, she went into his home and placed hidden cameras around so she could monitor how the new woman interacted with their six-year-old daughter.
Taking to Reddit, the man said: "Adam started seeing his now girlfriend about eight months ago.
"Claire wasn't happy about it. In fact, she was livid that Adam introduced my stepdaughter to his girlfriend so soon.
"Claire demanded meetings with Adam's girlfriend to test and see what kind of stepmom she will be for my stepdaughter, I didn't give it much attention because of the drama and always having mother-in-law involved as well."
But it seems his wife went a step further than just wanted to meet the woman to vet her and actually decided to spy on them.
He said: "However, I very recently found out that Claire installed several cameras in Adam's house while he and his girlfriend were away on a trip.

"Claire had the key to Adam's house because most of my stepdaughter's stuff is there.
"Keep in mind that I found out by looking at the chat Claire had with my mother-in-law so she was in on it too.
"It irked me because that is a total breach of privacy but when I confronted Claire she said she did this because Adam's girlfriend was going to move in soon and she wanted to see how she treats my stepdaughter.
"I told her this was wrong but she said it was all temporary til Adam's girlfriend is in 'the clear'.
"I still wasn't convinced and suggested she remove the cameras because of the huge legal troubles once Adam finds out.
"But she lost her temper on me saying I should stay out of it because I clearly don't care about my stepdaughter's wellbeing and happiness, but she had no evidence or even reason to believe Adam's girlfriend might mistreat my stepdaughter.
"Claire said she just wants to 'double check' and Adam does not need to know.
"But I disagreed and said that I will tell him if she won't remove the cameras which made her lose it on me and get my mother-in-law to shut me down and get me to stay in my lane but I couldn't.
"Claire said if I tell Adam then we gonna have a problem and urged me to mind my own business because Adam isn't more important than my relationship with her so I shouldn't even entertain the idea of telling him and upsetting Claire who is just trying to make sure her daughter's future stepmom isn't some witch stepmom in the making."
Fellow Reddit users were quick to jump in and share their opinion of the situation.
One said: "You need to tell him. This is illegal and you could get in trouble now if you knew and took no action."
Another said: "Tell Adam, this is a total breach of privacy. Depending on the law in the country you are from you could have serious legal issues if Adam finds out.
"I'd reconsider staying married to this woman if this is what she's willing to do. The goal doesn't justify the means."
While a third said: "This is beyond crazy and quite frankly disturbing.
"If I were you, I would take a long hard look at your wife and ask yourself if she is really over the Ex. The fact she celebrated him not having a relationship and moving on and how she reacted when the girlfriend came in to the picture.
"Worse case scenario, she not over her ex. Best case scenario, she is a control freak with no boundaries. Lots of red flags here, you should be very concerned."
