Sometimes we have a feeling in our gut when a partner or spouse is cheating. Other times, we are totally blindsided and don’t see the infidelity coming. Even if you do have your suspicions, it can be difficult to know for sure. Before you decide to hire a cheating spouse investigator, there are some signs that can give you a better sense of whether they are cheating or not.


An Unfair Advantage

Not for you, but for the cheating spouse. No one wants to think a partner or spouse is lying or cheating. It’s often easier to give them the benefit of the doubt than to acknowledge what’s really going on. There are even some people who choose to ignore their spouse’s cheating ways because they don’t want to suffer the pain the alternative comes with.


A cheating spouse will take advantage of the trust you have in them, dismissing any questions by telling them what they want to hear, such as, “I’d never cheat on you.”


Turn Yourself into a Mini Cheating Spouse Investigator and Look Out for These Signs

Signs of infidelity vary from relationship to relationship. However, if you are feeling that something is off in your relationship, there may be some signs you’ll want to look out for.


  1. Gut Instinct

If you feel that something isn’t right, you’re probably right. The mere fact that you have to seriously ask whether your spouse is cheating is one of the telltale signs of infidelity. Of course, you could be wrong, but how often is your gut instinct wrong?


  1. A Change in Behavior
  • They change their daily routine for no apparent reason
  • They seem distant or not fully present when you are together
  • They either begin to ignore you, or become overly nice overnight
  • They don’t show as much affection as they used to. This can be a big sign, particularly if the lack of affection cannot be explained


  1. They Become More Secretive

If your spouse starts taking or making phone calls in private, especially if they never used to do that before, that is mostly likely a sign of infidelity. Another example may be if they are deleting text messages. Most people tend to delete texts only when their phone is full, but if they are deleting texts after every conversation, that is suspicious behavior.


If you discover multiple email addresses or social media accounts that you did not know about, that is not a good sign. When in a committed relationship, there is no need to maintain accounts that your spouse is unaware of.


  1. More Time Spent with Someone Else

If your spouse is spending more and more time with a friend or colleague, particularly one of the opposite sex, you may want to look deeper into that ‘friendship’ as there couple be an affair going on.


  1. “I’m Working Late”

They spend more and more time ‘at the office’ and keep coming home late. If your spouse is generally gone longer every day – their 30 minute jog has turned into a 2 hour jog – you may want to look into that.


  1. They Become Defensive

You used to be able to discuss concerns openly in the past, but now you can’t have a discussion without your spouse becoming overly defensive. Defensiveness can often be a sign of guilt.
