Case Study - Caught in South Beach

Surveillance is the "art" of covertly following someone and documenting his activities. For the audience of television and film, it appears brief, interesting, and productive.

First, get some counseling. The reason your relationship didn't last has much more to do with the person you see in the mirror every day than most people are willing to admit. I'm not suggesting that you're responsible for your spouse's infidelity or abandonment or inability to commit; no, they're accountable for their own behavior. What I am saying is, unless you're from a culture where someone picked your spouse for you, you picked that person!
