Ex-mistress creates new 'Wife School' to help women prevent husbands from cheating
Would you take advice from the mistress of some high-profile married celebs if it meant saving your marriage? Sarah Symonds, a former celebrity mistress, is offering women a course through a non-profit online advice forum called "Wife School" to help them prevent their men from straying in their marriages. Symonds first found success through her Canadian TV show The Mistress where she rescued women who were caught in extramarital affairs. Now she has come up with Wife School, an organization intended to help make marriages today more successful and lessen the divorce rate.
The 43-year-old spilled the information about her latest project to the U.K. Daily Mail, and if it sounds absurd to be getting advice from someone who was the "other woman," hear me out. She actually offers some EXCELLENT relationship tips and it can apply to all of us--whether you're married or not.
The last thing I would ever think about is taking a former mistress's advice. I mean what could an ex-homewrecker have to offer those in relationships? But Symonds has convinced me that it only makes sense to get inside the brain of la otra if you want to know how to keep your man satisfied. If you can approach this concept with an open mind, you'll see that she offers excellent tips!

Symonds admits that her reputation isn't the best, but affirms that she is no longer the person she once was and instead wants to help women save their marriages from infidelity. In fact, she says that Wife School started because she kept receiving e-mails from women asking her for advice on preventing their husbands from cheating on them.
So what does Symonds advise married women to do? Well for starters, she says women should do their best to spend more time in the bedroom than the kitchen. She adds that for men, it's all about the ESF rule. That being: Men need to eat, sleep, and fornicate. She believes that by fulfilling these needs, your husband will never stray. But it's not just the physical aspect of marriage that she focuses on. Symonds also advises that staying up late and chatting with your husband, being a good listener, and being affectionate are also key to a harmonious marriage.
She warns: "Don't allow space in your marriage for other women to walk into." She even says that women should treat marriage like a career. "Marriage should be likened to a high powered job, once you land that job you know you need to show up daily, put a huge amount of effort into your role in order to keep it--and prosper within it--otherwise there is always the risk that someone may come along and take it from you." She adds: "If more people treated their marriage as they do their job, more marriages would last the lifetime they are supposed to."
Symonds told the site that although she isn't a trained professional, her experience and knowledge can help women understand the way men cheat and lie. She also says she would eventually like to turn Wife School into an actual institution for women to practice self-image lessons, communication skills, and even learn about fitness.
If that isn't excellent advice, I don't know what is! I think it's great that Symonds is willing to help out women with the nitty gritty details she gathered while being a mistress. However, I still think it would be great for men to have their own program as well. Who knows, maybe Symonds decides to create a similar program for guys teaching them how to keep us happy too!
