Deciding whether you would stand behind a cheating spouse can be a difficult thing to come to grips with.
As an example, you’re a guy and you and you have your suspicions about your wife being faithful to you.
So, if your wife may be cheating, would you do all you can to get to the bottom of the matter?
What Signs Lead You to Worry?
Some signs are more obvious than others when there is a cheating spouse at play.
Sure, it may be she has added responsibilities at work or even caring for an outside family member or friend. But, what if much of her time spent away from home is going towards another man in a romantic manner?
Among some of the signs you want to pick up on:
- Time – Yes, all that time spent out of the home could mean she is meeting up with another man. If this turns out to be the case, will you confront her about it? If you do, you want to do it in a way that does not involve verbal and especially physical violence. All that does is make matters worse.
- Commitment – Is your wife spending less of an effort to commit to things with you? An example of this would be if you had a major vacation planned for later in the year. Has she recently stopped talking about the trip? Has she not put any funds towards the trip like she said she would? You might also have been thinking of buying property somewhere. For example, a vacation home the two of you have been interested in. If she has withdrawn her interest in such a venture, this can be another sign of someone else in play.
- Communication – Has there been less communication between the two of you as of late? If the answer is yes, yet one more sign things could be going in the wrong direction for your marriage. While there will be occasional gaps in communication, prolonged episodes can mean trouble.
- Electronic communications – Last, is she quite selective in when she talks on her phone? As an example, she leaves the room to use her phone more often than not. Yes, while everyone needs privacy times, too much of this can be a big red flag. If she has shied away from using the computer also when you are around, this can be another sign of trouble. While you should not try to get into her phone or computer, do question her why there is more secrecy now.
Deciding if you would stand behind a cheating spouse can be a difficult thing to determine.
Yes, you more than likely love your wife quite a bit.
That said are you willing to sit by and watch your marriage fall apart without trying to do something about it?
By taking the initiative to get to the bottom of the issue, you stand a better chance of getting the answers you need.
