What are the signs that my husband is having an affair?

Changes in appearance can be a sign of adultery. For example, if your partner dresses better, exercises more, pays more attention to their personal hygiene, or puts on perfume or cologne more often than usual, it could be to seduce someone else. And if that person isn't you, you might have an affair. If you're being cheated on, your partner may suddenly and inexplicably be unavailable for random periods of time.

We must remember that some people's work or social commitments require spending time away from their phones. However, nowadays, if someone is unavailable for long periods of time suddenly and without explanation, that can be a sign. Love affairs don't offer the commitment or security of a traditional relationship, which often means that the men involved in them can begin to act unsafely with their partners. If your husband suddenly seems more needy or has new concerns about his success or attractiveness, it could be one of the signs that he is cheating.

Cheating can be stressful for everyone involved, which means that your husband suddenly starts acting as if anything you ask of him is similar to the Spanish Inquisition. Many cheating spouses will try to evaluate their partner's reaction to a story about cheating by framing it as if it were something a trusted friend told them, or they will ask them what they would do if they were in the same situation. If your partner suddenly seems to have no interest in sex, despite being in decent health both physically and mentally, it's usually one of the telltale signs that your husband is cheating on you. In addition to going to the gym more often and being more careful with their grooming, many cheating husbands will ensure that their closet is priced at a million dollars to please the new object of their affection.

While some unfaithful husbands practically refuse to give information about their whereabouts, others will do everything in their power to cover their backs. Believe it or not, some cheating husbands actually cheat because they're worried that their partner might do the same. Cheating often involves a fair amount of guilt, leading some husbands to make their spouses stop doing good things for them. Sometimes cheating husbands try to be discreet about their flirts, but they can't help but talk about them anyway.

If your husband's friends suddenly treat you as his best friend, even when you haven't been so close in the past, it could be a sign that your spouse is cheating on you and has told some members of his inner circle the news.
