Hey there, Steve here and welcome to this week’s private eye post where I’m going to run through a 4-step process to uncovering a cheating wife.

#1 Signs She’s Cheating At Work

Women typically begin an emotional affair long before they start any nefarious physical activities with their fling. It should come as no surprise then, that the workplace is the #1 breeding ground for this to happen.

Look for signs of changes in work patterns and general behaviour and attitudes to work. Is she going to work earlier? Or staying late? Or socialising with work colleagues more often?

Sometimes a cheating wife will talk about the person she’s begun an emotional affair with—so listen carefully when she speaks about work.

#2 Signs She’s Cheating With One Of Your Friends

A close second to her cheating at work is her doing the dirty with someone you know. It’s kind of the same set of circumstances as the workplace, in that the usual barriers are down, and she can become emotionally invested in this so-called friend.

This can be much harder to discover though. As you’re all friends, it’s only natural she will talk with them, and about them with you.

But there are always signs when it’s gone too far. Emotions are hard to keep down, and so jealousy, lack of previous flirting and attitudes when you’re all together are the keys to uncovering the truth.

#3 How She Makes Time To Cheat

One of the biggest problems every cheat has is making time for their adulterous activities. And, although this is going to sound a little sexist, wives typically spend more time at home than their husbands.

This means she has to find excuses to get out of the house to go and meet the guy she’s cheating with.

There are all sorts of reasons a wife might concoct to do this (I’ve heard some crazy ones over the years!) but there are some which are so frequently used, I almost laugh when I hear them.

#4 Physical Signs Of A Cheating Wife

Cheating always leaves clues. Something like a huge and unexplainable love bite is an obvious giveaway as to what she’s been up to.

But there are both obvious and subtle physical signs. Often staying out late with the girls. Avoiding sex with you. Happy being home alone and encouraging you to go out when previously she would nag you not to.

The signs of cheating are always present and if you know what to look for, they aren’t that difficult to detect. Cheating changes the behaviour of a person. Their thoughts and subsequent actions are skewed by what they’re secretly up to.

And if your wife says any of these 4 things she may be cheating even if you haven’t spotted any other clues.
