The fact that you’re reading this article means that you’re probably concerned that your wife may be cheating on you. As someone who used to be a private investigator for infidelity, I have some bad news: In recent studies, women who were surveyed admitted that if they knew they wouldn’t be caught, 68% of them would have affairs.
That’s a staggering amount. Especially when coupled with the statistic that 54% of women say that they have already committed infidelity in some previous (or current) relationship. Does this mean that your wife is undoubtedly cheating as well? Of course not.
But, it is statistically true that most people who suspect their spouses are cheating end up being proven correct. As someone who used to do this for a living I’ll give you some advice: don’t hire private investigators. We’re overpriced and becoming obsolete by the day(why do you think I retired?). For less than a hundred dollars you can do more than most private investigators, on your own.
There are some tips I can give you about how to tell if your wife is cheating though. Here are the three most common signs that a woman may be cheating:
- She begins to give you lots of attention, showers you with praise, gives you gifts, etc. Doesn’t sound so bad, right? Unfortunately this can often be caused by the guilt that she feels for having an affair. In an attempt to make herself feel better about what she’s doing, your wife may get you random cards, flowers more often, gifts, etc. On the other hand, she could just be being nice. So be careful.
- The other biggest thing is that she suddenly doesn’t let her phone out of her sight, ever. She may sleep with it under her pillow or near her head. She also may install a lock that you don’t know the code to. If she has always had a lock on her phone then this may mean nothing but if it’s a recent thing, she is probably hiding something.
- Finally, if she’s working out a ton, dressing better, etc. – there’s a chance that it’s not for you. She may have someone else that she’s trying to look good for. Often this sign doesn’t mean she’s cheating yet but may plan on it later.
Some women that cheat don’t do any of these things, and some do all three – so please don’t use this as a guide for how to tell if your wife is cheating. Instead, use it as a few signs that it’s a possibility.
