Most men never think that they will ever ask themselves the question “Is my wife having an affair?” People typically generalize that men are more inclined into having affairs than women. However, when it comes to cheating, both men and women can be as equally guilty. Adultery is so shockingly common; there are even websites that promote affairs.
People tend to go astray from their marriage for a variety of reasons. Some are dissatisfied or unhappy with their relationship that they look for other people from whom they can get their needs. This can be especially true for women when it comes to emotional needs—they want someone they can talk to and confide in. They will be more likely to have an affair if they feel that their husbands have become emotionally distant from them. There are also women who cheat to take revenge because they have reason to believe their husbands were also cheating in the first place.
Is My Wife Having an Affair?
If you are a faithful husband with a gut feeling that your wife is cheating, how can you tell if she is having an affair? Sudden changes are the typical tell-tale signs of cheating. Examples of such changes are an increase or decrease in sexual interest, as well as too much or too little attention to family. There are many other signs you can look out for if you feel that your wife is hiding an affair from you.
Women naturally spend more in buying new clothes, lingerie, makeup or hairstyle or tanning services. However, if they do it seemingly out of the blue and not for special occasions like your anniversary, think twice. That is, if your wife is not the spontaneous type. If you want to play detective to find out what she spends on—if she buys possible gifts for someone else—check the bill. If she is hiding the bill from you, there is something in there she does not want you to see.
Phone and Internet Use
The question “Is my wife having an affair?” can strike fear into the hearts of faithful men who had done nothing but their wives’ whims. If your wife spends more time on the phone or internet behind your back, it is probably because she is keeping something from you. You will also notice how she scrams to close screen windows when you happen to walk in. She will possibly spend hours on the phone outside the room or house, without you nearby to hear the conversation. If she continues this behavior for an extended period, you will want to check the web history or her phone record.
Other ways to find out if your wife is cheating can be done by your own detective work. Check the condition of the bed, drapes and the house in general before leaving for work and how they are when you arrive from work. Check the trash for any used condoms and see if the toilet seat was left up or if the shower was used.
If you suspect your wife is cheating, think for a moment about your marriage situation. If it is not working out, it probably is one of the reasons why your wife will want to look for someone else. Keep your communication lines open so you will find that you never have to ask yourself, “Is my wife having an affair?”
