What are some signs my spouse is having an affair?

Even the best marriage can be vulnerable to concerns about infidelity. You may even know of friends or family members in Illinois who have been cheated on. Maybe you even know a cheating spouse. But, what happens if you suspect that your own spouse may be having an affair? How can you tell? While there may be no one clearly foolproof way to catch a cheating spouse, there are some things that you may notice that might signal cause for concern.

According to the Huffington Post, perhaps one of the biggest signs of marital infidelity can be seen in very sudden behavioral changes on the part of your spouse. Even if the new behavior is reasonable and potentially positive in some ways, the rapid and unexpected change may be a flag. One great example is the effort to look more physically appealing. Some spouses may all of a sudden start going to the gym more often and maybe even dressing nicer than before.

While identify theft is a real threat in our society today, if your spouse all of a sudden becomes hyper-vigilant about passwords and personal privacy to the point of even excluding you from information, you may want to do some checking. You should also pay attention if you start hearing a new person’s name come up frequently in conversations—even if the references are negative.

This information is not intended to provide legal advice but general information about some behaviors that may be warning signs to an Illinois husband or wife that a spouse is cheating.
