It’s a grim statistic, but infidelity investigations indicate that well over 50% of spouses or partners are unfaithful at some point in a marriage or relationship.
The first sign may not be anything tangible at all, but rather a “gut feeling.” But how can you tell if your gut feeling is justified, or if it’s just your imagination? Take a look at the five signs below and see if your spouse is exhibiting any of the behaviors described–if so, it might be worth hiring a private investigator that conducts infidelity investigations.
1. Losing Weight
This applies to women more than men, but it’s something to think about with both genders. If your spouse is suddenly slimming down and taking care of themselves more and looking better in general (expensive haircuts, buying new clothes or lingerie), this is a strong indicator that they have someone on the side they are trying to impress.
Trust is what binds a relationship together, but when you have to overly rely on pure faith that your partner isn’t cheating when they are on yet another business trip with their attractive female colleague, it might be time to look a little deeper. Infidelity investigations have shown that simply having the opportunity to cheat is a warning sign that, when taken with the other items in this list, there may be infidelity.
3. Long working hours
If your spouse suddenly has a new project at work that requires them to be away from home for extended periods and at odd hours, they might be cheating. This is especially true if it is not something that has ever occurred in the past.
4. Taking a shower when arriving home
Especially if your spouse has an office job, taking a shower after work or at some other random time could be an indicator that they are trying to erase evidence of something like cigarette smoke or perfume or cologne. This would be particularly suspicious if occurring after a period of absence, like “running errands.”
5. Trying to get you out of the house
If your spouse is overly enthusiastic about you needing to take some time off and maybe “get away for the weekend,” this could definitely indicate that something is up.
Look At The Big Picture
Of course there can be legitimate excuses for any of the above behaviors. Keep in mind though that your own denial can sometimes keep you from seeing what is going on right in front of your face. When combined with an overall deterioration of the relationship and a “gut feeling,” the signs described are a strong clue that you have an unfaithful partner. Stay alert and notice other odd details like strange hairs in the car, or a passenger seat that is adjusted differently than normal.
