Think Your Spouse Is Cheating? Key Signs To Look For

Those who are married take their wedding vows seriously and want to believe their spouses are faithful. Unfortunately, infidelity is all too common. If you have suspicions that your husband or wife may be cheating on you, there could be a simple explanation that has nothing to do with infidelity. In some cases though, your intuition might be trying to tell you something.

Here are some key signs that may indicate your spouse isn't being faithful:

1. Excessive Control Around Electronic Devices and Accounts

In today’s digital age, technology can play a major role in enabling or facilitating cheating behavior. If your spouse suddenly turns off his or her laptop or tablet, or seems paranoid about you touching his or her phone, your spouse may be trying to hide communications from other partners.

2. Unusual Behavior

When you've been with your spouse for any length of time, you have probably come to know this person pretty well, and understand his or her normal patterns and routines. If your spouse seems more focused on his or her appearance, starts keeping unusual hours or seems fidgety, nervous or uncomfortable around you, it may be because your spouse is feeling guilty about his or her infidelity.

3. Changes in Intimacy

Sexual appetites and habits can — and often do — change over time for married couples. However, if your spouse suddenly starts rebuffing your advances or no longer seems interested in being intimate with you, it may be a sign that he or she is seeing someone else on the side.

4. Frequently Unreachable

Open communication is a key part of healthy relationships. If your spouse's communication habits change suddenly, or if you believe your spouse is ignoring your phone calls or text messages during times when he or she is normally available, there may be a perfectly innocent explanation. However, there may instead be something to your hunch.

5. Guilty Behavior

Sometimes, cheating spouses feel so guilty about their infidelity that they start lavishing their husbands or wives with praise, affection or costly gifts. Of course, these types of actions could be nothing more than genuine gestures. Still, if they come out of the blue, your spouse may be trying to mask an affair.
