4 Common “Triggers” Of Gut Instinct When A Husband Cheats

Hey there, Steve here and welcome to this week’s private eye post.

There are many specific signs of lying we can look for when we conduct a cheating spouse or partner investigation. Whether it’s cheating body language, verbal clues, micro-expressions, physical clues or surveillance, we work quickly and efficiently to determine infidelity.

But whenever we ask a client why they think their husband is cheating on them, the most popular answer is, “I just know it deep down.” In other words, gut instinct.

So, today we’ll be looking at the most common triggers of ‘gut instinct’ we come across in our work.

#1 Distance

Should your husband become emotionally distant from you, it can be the precursor to the end of your marriage. Happy couples share their day and say how they feel about things, without any fear of judgement from their partner. Instead the expectation, rightfully so, is to be backed-up by your partner, who listens with empathy and understanding. When he no longer speaks with you about the little things, you’ll feel like the relationship has weakened, and your instincts tell you something is wrong quickly.

#2 New Mannerisms

Whenever you spot changes in behaviour or routine, you should remember there will be a reason for them. Lots of cheats employ smart tactics to ensure no changes are apparent. But for some cheating husbands, spending time with someone they find attractive can also cause changes in mannerisms. These changes stem from the body language ‘mirroring’ of a person your husband finds attractive.

#3 Time Slips

People don’t change their routines as much as they think they do. Especially men. Once men form habits and establish work and home routines, it’s unusual for much variance without the both of you understanding why. So, if he’s spending time on new things, and he’s vague with details, then you’re right to be wary.

#4 It All Adds Up

Monumental discoveries aside, most cheats are caught out by an accumulative sequence of lies and deceit, spun over long periods of time. So, continually catching him out with little details eventually adds up to that ‘gut instinct.’ But you don’t have to wait that long if you start keeping a journal the first time you feel that way.
