It’s a fact: approximately 50% of all married people cheat on their spouse. And it isn’t just the husband who is doing the cheating; the wives cheat too. If you suspect your spouse or partner may be cheating, here are ten warning signs that infidelity is taking place.
Has your partner changed his appearance? People who are cheating are likely to begin losing weight, coloring their hair or getting a new hairstyle, buy new clothes, get Botox for those wrinkles, etc. They are doing this to look better for the new person in their life, or to look younger for them.
Does your partner go out with friends without you? If your spouse suddenly wants to go out with people and you are not invited, there is a chance they are actually having a date with a new someone special. This is especially true if starts happening on a regular basis.
Is your partner doing things secretly? If your husband suddenly steps out of the room or goes outside to take cell phone calls when he would normally take phone calls right in front of you, he may be talking to a girlfriend.
Do you and your spouse have sex anymore? If your sex life is now non-existent, extremely rare, or unemotional (more of an act than a physical, emotional connection), your spouse may be cheating on you. It is possible they regard sex with you as cheating on the person with whom they are having the affair!
Are there unexplained credit card charges? Finding charges to restaurants that you know he didn’t take you to, or charges for hotel rooms, this is certainly a sign of infidelity. The only thing worse than this is finding out that your spouse or partner has new credit cards that they didn’t tell you about. They use these cards for dating expenses, buying gifts or hotel expenses for the new person.
Is your partner suddenly up late at night using the internet, when he used to be in bed with you? It’s possible he is up sending messages to his new love. Since internet history can easily be deleted, it is a great tool for cheaters to use and be able to cover up their tracks.
If your spouse takes you to office functions and his coworkers are suddenly cold towards you, he may be cheating. In this instance, his coworkers may not know what to say to you. Or they may figure that you are on your way out, so what is the purpose of talking to you at all? Coworkers are likely to know if your spouse is cheating because they spend a lot more time with him. All of this occurs assuming he even includes you at office functions anymore. He may choose to begin excluding you altogether.
Is your spouse suddenly mean or angry towards you? If she begins to constantly complain about the marriage and make statements like “You never do this” or “I wish you could be more like this person” or even “I am so unhappy with my life”, it is possible there is cheating going on.
Has your spouse cheated on your before? People who have cheated in the past are much more likely to cheat in the future. If this is the case with your partner, look for the other signs in conjunction with this one.
The last and most telltale sign that someone is cheating: they come home smelling like their new partner. Their clothes may smell like the perfume or cologne of the other person, or they may just smell like the body odor of another. There may also be makeup, such as lipstick, on a man’s clothes. This is a dead giveaway that an affair is taking place.
