Is Your Husband Cheating? How to Find Out
If you suspect your husband is cheating, you are probably going through a whole gamut of emotions.
Fear, sadness, loneliness, rejection, and confusion are likely to be at the top of the list.
But even though you are heartbroken at the thought of your husband with another woman, there are things you can do to find out whether he is in fact cheating before you make yourself crazy.
It’s important not to confront cheating husbands without having something to back up your claims.
Remember: There’s a possibility that you are wrong! If your intuition is telling you that he’s hiding something, however he probably is.
Monitor his phone
We know: You don’t snoop in your husband’s phone. That’s great! You have a relationship built on trust. But now you suspect he is cheating, so things have changed, right? If you notice an unfamiliar number in your husband’s phone, you can trace it using an online reverse lookup site. You’ll find the name and address of the person who owns the number. What you do with that information is up to you.
Search his computer
Just like his phone, your husband’s computer will probably garner some clues as to whether he’s cheating and with whom. Check his emails, look at his search history, and which websites he’s been visiting. If you know what you are doing, you can install a spyware program on his computer that will give you information about who is emailing him, who he is emailing, the content of the messages, which websites he’s been visiting, his login information and passwords, etc.
Hire a private investigator
If you aren’t comfortable doing some investigative work on your own, hire a professional. They will give you solid evidence of your husband’s whereabouts. Did he really have to work late, or was he out somewhere else? They will follow your husband and take photos and video of his comings and goings. Be aware, however, that private investigators aren’t cheap, so this is the best option only if you are prepared to take real action based on the evidence they gather. It’s not worth the expense “just to know.”
It’s never an easy situation when you start to suspect that the one person in the world you thought you could trust, but it’s also devastating and destructive to your self esteem to live with a person you don’t trust entirely.
If you want to get to the bottom of whether your husband is cheating, use the tips above to find out the real deal. What you find may not be easy to swallow, but it’s a lot easier than trying to live with a person you don’t trust. You’ll only spend the rest of your life second-guessing everything he does or says, every time he says he has to work late, and every time he says he’s going out with the guys. That’s no way to be married.
