                      Is your Wife Cheating? 4 Red Flags

-from Algonquin, Dundee and Huntley-


You are not alone if you suspect that your wife may be being unfaithful to you. Infidelity among spouses is too common. Infidelity often is portrayed as glamorous, hip and fashionable on TV and in the media.

The following are a few signs that might indicate that your wife or girlfriend is indeed cheating:

1. Has she changed her appearance?

If she has done so then there may be a chance she is attempting to impress another person with her looks. The changes may be minor or substantial.

Perhaps she has always worn glasses that were fine with her, but now she indicates that she "just has to have contacts.” Has she suddenly started changing her appearance to show more skin, when she has dressed more conservatively in the past?. Is she wearing a different type of make-up or perfume? In general, does it appear that she may be trying to impress or gain the attention of someone else?

2. Is she lessening or withdrawing her affection?

Has your love life with your wife been steady? If so, has your spouse suddenly become less interested in sex with you? If so, infidelity could be taking place. Has your satisfactory-enough love life suddenly disappeared?

Has your wife become distant and emotionally and physically unavailable? These are signs that there could be an affair in the making, if one is not already taking place? Unfaithful spouses often feel guilty and become emotionally inaccessible because of a fear of getting caught.

3. Is your wife becoming more secretive or “private?”

The signs of a possible affair or infidelity include the expenditure of lots of time on the Internet or on the cell phone in “private” or secretive conversations . If she responds with "nobody," "no one important" or "none of your business" when you ask who she has been talking to, it could be a sign that she may be cheating.

Other signs of infidelity could include your wife abruptly hanging up the phone, turning the Internet page or closing her computer when you enter the room?

4. Any strange or suspicious items on your bills?

One of the easier ways to catch an unfaithful spouse is to start paying or, at least, looking at the bills. Have the phone bills suddenly increased or do some phone numbers look suspicious? What about some of the text messages or pictures on her cell phone? Do they seem suspicious, out-of-place or inappropriate?

Are there inappropriate or out-of-place charges for motel rooms, restaurants, or any unexplained purchases from men's clothing stores on the credit or debit card statements? Wives cheating over time are likely to make a mistake, so stay vigilant and keep your antennae up for these red flags.

Do not confront your spouse in front of your children or anyone else, for that matter, if you find evidence that she is cheating. No matter how enraged you may become, do not behave abusively or violently. Stay composed before approaching her and while discussing the situation; remember your relationship might be salvageable, but only if both of you are willing to problem-solve, maintain open minds, compromise and work it out.
