Want to make your marriage last? Let your hubby cheat. Atleast that’s what mistress-for-hire (and now author) Holly Hill’s theory suggests.

In an interview with


, the


author made the case for managed adultery, explaining, "a woman that negotiates infidelity with her partner is far more powerful than a woman who is sitting home wondering why he's late from the office Christmas party," because "it's better to walk the dog on a leash than let it escape through an unseen hole in the back fence." And if you're the sort of person who views your spouse as an easily trained pet, that should work out great, writes Mary Elizabeth Williams on


Cheating partner

What's more? Hill considers monogamous men to be heroes. "I think that cheating men are normal," Hill explains. "Monogamous men are heroes. Monogamy does have a place in relationships, but not on the long-term. Men are hard-wired to betray women on the long-term. There you have it: A man and a woman can take the same vow, but the guy who keeps it is a hero."

Even worse, Hill thinks women should cheat, too…but just to make their husbands jealous. Women, she says, "definitely need to negotiate infidelity as well, especially because that will generate her man's competitive nature. The more lovers the woman has, the more attraction the man will have for his partner," reports Salon.
