5 Signs Your Husband Is Seriously Thinking About Cheating

Hey there, Steve here and welcome to this week’s private eye post. Today we’ll take a look at the 5 most common signs that your husband is seriously thinking about cheating.

Quite often when we’re called out, it’s because the wife has some gut instinct that something isn’t quite right. It doesn’t always turn out to be a case of cheating. Sometimes the signs triggering these feelings of betrayal are because their husband is considering an affair.

Cheating is the ultimate loss of your marriage trust, but for many it comes as a complete surprise. Learn to recognise the signs before it happens, and you can work on your marriage to prevent it from ever happening.

#1 Emotional Withdrawal

If your verbal engagements resemble a war zone instead of a loving and nurturing relationship it’s easy to see how that things have taken a turn for the worse. But if there’s never any disagreement about any aspect of your relationship, then there’s a communication disconnection. The “silence” in your marriage means your husband doesn’t think you want to hear what’s on his mind. When he feels this way, he may believe it’s acceptable to seek what he needs elsewhere.

#2 Loss of Physical Intimacy

Sex is obvious. What I’m talking about here is hand holding, hugging, and other intimate relationship stuff. When that’s all gone, there’s no connection and it means your marriage is headed for the rocks. It’s always the little things that count.

#3 Checking Out Other People

When you’re with your hubby, is he constantly checking out other women? This physical scanning of others means he’s open for someone new in his life.

#4 Zero Date Nights

Taking time out for each other can be difficult in certain circumstances, but if there’s never a willingness to go on a date night, you should be concerned. People who are in love grab moments together, even if they’re less frequent than they used to be.

#5 Lack of Attention

All of us have busy lives. Did you previously check in with each other throughout the day? Has that attention disappeared? People in love care about what their partners are feeling as they go through their day-to-day lives. It’s the behaviour equivalent of physical intimacy.


Trust your instincts. If you feel like your marriage relationship isn’t on the right course, then look out for these signs your husband is thinking about cheating. You may also want to learn to recognise these signs your husband has recently started an affair…
