How do you know if your spouse is cheating? In most cases, if you are asking the question, then you already suspect that you just might be the victim of infidelity. At the very least, there are trust issues in your relationship.
The signs of infidelity are different for every relationship. There are, of course, some common threads that you can look for. You have a gut feeling that your partner is cheating, and you might be right. But you need more than just a hunch if you are going to confront your significant other about their behavior.
The Law Offices of Loomis and Greene, your divorce lawyer in Loveland, offers signs that your spouse might be cheating on you.
Sex isn’t the only type of intimacy in a marriage. However, if your spouse suddenly has no interest in having sex, it could be a sign of cheating.
Keep in mind, of course, that there could be any number of reasons why you and your spouse aren’t having sex. Just make sure you don’t jump to conclusions.
They Never Part with Their Phone
It should be of no surprise that most adults bring their cell phones with them everywhere they go. However, if your spouse is taking their phone with them when they shower, it could be a sign that they are having an affair.
Your spouse’s cell phone is a wealth of information. It holds texts, emails, photos, videos and talk history. If your spouse won’t even take out the garbage without grabbing their phone, we would consider that a red flag.
You Get Accused of Cheating
One of the more strange signs of cheating is when they accuse you of doing the same thing. There are some people who cheat because they are worried that their spouse is cheating.
Lots of Gifts
It is always nice to get flowers at work and come home to gifts. But if you are suddenly getting presents all of the time, it could be because your spouse is cheating on you.
A guilty conscience will often prompt a cheater to overextend themselves to their spouses in the form of expensive designer bags, roses and jewelry.
Giving gifts might also be a way to divert your attention. After all, if you are receiving really nice gifts from your spouse with frequency, everything must be hunky dory.
New Clothes, New Hairdo, New Look
You spouse is suddenly interested in buying new clothes and spending much more time in front of the mirror lately. And while it is nice to see them put some actual effort into their appearance, it could be a sign they are cheating on you.
When your spouse suddenly has a good reason to look good, don’t be surprised if they shop for new clothes and try out a few new hairstyles.
Hit the Gym
Your spouse has never made an effort to hit the gym on a regular basis. Suddenly, they are at the gym every day for hours at a time. It could be a sign they are cheating on you.
When your spouse suddenly has a good reason to look good in the buff, they hit the gym, cut out the calories and start eating salad, which they have never done before.
Always Texting Somebody
Your spouse had a small circle of friends of which there is phone communication back and forth. All of the sudden, they are always texting. And texting all hours of the day and night.
There is a thrill about being secretive and trying not to get caught.
If your spouse has also changed all of their passwords, that is a sign that they could be cheating as well. A cheating spouse will do everything they can to keep clues that they are cheating hidden and safe.
An Altered Schedule
When your spouse suddenly has to work late all the time, even though they have never worked late before, it could be a sign that they are cheating on you.
Also, a cheating partner may suddenly have a flat tire, gets stuck in traffic jams and has other excuses for always running late.
