Cheating wife signs can be very difficult to figure out. You check her call logs, interrogate her, check her handbag, but every effort is in vain. If your wife is cheating on you, she will surely leave some subtle but clear signs!
If you look at the figures, in a recent survey, more than 74% women said, they had an emotional affair outside their marriage, around 65% women said they were unfaithful because of problems in their relationship and more than 50% women said, they have cheated on their spouses more than once.
Sudden behavioral changes, getting defensive about problems and being secretive are major cheating wife signs. But these are the same old clichés that you might have read or heard from your friends with a cheating wife or from relatives.
But this is the hi-tech age we’re living in… How far will you go to check where your wife is, what is she doing or who is she calling or meeting? With software that can protect call records, fake email id’s and web cameras in chat rooms, it is next to impossible to keep a watch on your wife unless you hire a divorce detective! And, who wants to get into that mess?
Let us focus on simpler things that are sure signs that your wife is cheating on you. You need to observe your wife and other minute details in her behavior, so that slight changes in her lifestyle can be noticed by you. But before I start talking about cheating wife signs, let me take you to some surprisingly haunting facts that are a result of continuous research on marriages and infidelity.
- Studies show that, an estimated 30% to 60% people in America engage in infidelity and cheating at some point in their marriage.
- Research tells us that, emotionally, it is possible to have feelings for more than one partner, at any point of time.
- There exists some biological proofs that long-term monogamy is very difficult to achieve for any human being, although not impossible.
- Men are more probable to cheat on their spouse than women.
- Almost everyone admits to have fantasies involving a person(s), apart from their spouse.
- The initial stand of being unfaithful is never a rational decision. It is a result of a person’s emotional circumstances and problems in his or her relationship. Most of the people are surprised at their own actions as a cheating spouse.
I’m sure these facts are convincing enough to be cautious of a cheating spouse. Cheating wife signs are difficult to spot at the initial stage, so let me give you a brief about the signs that can be noticed right at the initial stage of infidelity.
There are lesser probabilities of a woman cheating on her man, as compared to those in case of men. A woman will rarely cheat just for sexual pleasure. She is more likely to have an emotional attachment with her lover.
Since a woman is more likely to have an emotional affair, she will fall for a man in her social circle – an old friend, a co-worker, a distant friend etc. A woman will give more importance to her love affair since it is most likely to be an emotional one.
In case of a one night stand, woman will always cheat for a better looking man. A woman is also likely to believe in revenge cheating, because once in her marriage, her man cheated on her.
Hints You Should Look Out For
She turns experimental in bed
One of the best indicators of a cheating wife is her behavior in bed. She will either stay away from having sex with you or she might seem to be wanting more of it all of a sudden. She might get very experimental in bed, if she used to be shy and conservative with you earlier.
She gives you loads of space
Earlier, your wife may have been naggy almost all the time, checking your messages, often calling you at work, trying hard to be in your social circle, and suddenly she starts giving you tons of space out of nowhere! Before feeling happy about getting so much space, let me warn you that this is one of the major signs of cheating in a relationship.
The fact that she has started giving you a lot of space suddenly indicates her own desire of having a personal space in which you have no place. A woman who is giving her husband, a lot of space will always expect the same in return to ensure safety while she is cheating on her husband.
She becomes secretive
If she becomes secretive about her work schedule, her new friends, her daily goings-on and secures her mobile phone and her laptop secretively like the security in front of The White House, she’s probably cheating on you. She might go out to meet her lover secretively and might give you an excuse that she went shopping which you are not so interested in.
She might also get secretive about her clothes and make up. She will always try to look good and attractive. She might smile secretively while watching TV, because she has been thinking of her lover.
She feels no jealousy or anger
You already have a gut feeling that something is wrong in your relationship. Your inner instincts have already started feeling the insecurity and that made you make your wife feel jealous by praising or talking to another woman. Did this turn out to be futile because she did not feel any jealously or anger? It’s a sure sign that your wife is cheating on you!
She suddenly becomes doting
She is doing all the household work without asking you for any help, she is watching your favorite football match with you without nagging, she is not yelling at you for any amount of mess you make in the house, instead she is giving you love cards and kisses. These are all the signs that indicate she is making up for her behavior so that you don’t find anything suspicious in your relationship with her.
Few more signs of cheating
These are signs that your wife is cheating, that can be traced at the initial stage of cheating itself. But if you have already missed out on that, here are few signs of a cheating wife who has already crossed her initial stage of cheating.
- If she asks weird questions like, “What if you fall in love with someone else?” or “Is it possible to have feelings for more than one person in life?”
- If you discover new clothes or lingerie in her wardrobe which she did not tell you about.
- Your wife might be cheating on you if her clothes smell of an altogether different fragrance, which you probably have never smelled before.
- She wants to have more of girl-time with her female friends.
- There is a “glow” on her face almost all the time.
- Sudden interest in a different genre of music is also a sign that your wife is cheating.
- A cheating wife will delete every incoming and outgoing call that she makes from the caller ID phone and gives a technical excuse like phone memory running low.
Did you catch your wife cheating on you and now are you confused with what to do next? After going through the research and after telling you the cheating wife signs, I have a few points for all my male friends. If you see any of these signs in your wife, do not panic. Talk it out with your wife in the first place and try to analyze what is lacking in your relationship.
After all, you have already learned the fact that most of the time, a woman will cheat on her husband because of marital problems. What a wife really needs is unconditional love, respect, understanding and companionship. See if you are lacking in any of these before blaming your wife of cheating, at the cost of losing her faith in you.
And for the women who are reading this, I am just left with one thought… The lover you might have outside your marriage is like a perfectly beautiful dress on a mannequin outside a boutique that you wish to wear. You spend a lot on it and then you repent because it may not fit you that well…and you will realize that your old pair of jeans is much more comfortable than any other dress you see outside!
