4 White Lies Every Wife Tells That May Just Save Your Marriage

Hey there, Steve here and welcome to this week’s private eye post where I’m going to show you four weird ways to detect lies told by a cheating wife or girlfriend.

It’s a sad fact but in Australia 1 in 3 marriages end in divorce, and adultery is one of the top cited reasons for these break-ups.

In a previous post, I explained the general differences between a cheating wife and cheating husband — you should note that women typically start an emotional affair before a physical one.

So, being able to detect lies as the emotional affair progresses, may just give you enough time to rescue your relationship, or save your marriage.

The Baseline

Everyone lies and is lied to hundreds of times each on average. Most lies simply aren’t important. They could be white lies, or just simply nothing to be in the slightest bit concerned with. But these lies provide you with a big opportunity. And that opportunity is to be able to confidently observe her behaviour when lying.

The baseline of someone’s behaviour is how they behave when they’re comfortable, and under no stress nor strain. When people lie, it feels uncomfortable, so they display signs of discomfort in their body language, eyes, facial expressions, and verbally.

What you really need to find out, is what those signs of discomfort are for your wife. And to do that, you need to know that she’s lying.

So, first of all, observe her behaviour when she’s relaxed and talking with you about something you know to be true.

Then look out for one of these four lies that every wife will tell you at some point and observe how her behaviour changes.

#1 No Change Needed

She’s 100% happy with you, and if she could wave a magic wand, she wouldn’t change a thing about you. Yeah, right! How about six-pack abs, a couple of million bucks more in the bank account and you spoiling her more often? She says she’s happy because she loves you and doesn’t want to hurt you. But make no mistake, this is almost always a lie.

#2 What Children?

Women are fundamentally aware that they have a ticking biological clock if they want to have kids. They also know that if they come right out and say they want to have kids quickly, they can scare their man away. The average age for marriage in Australia at the time of writing is just over 28 years old. I can guarantee she’s thinking about it and has a timeline in mind, even if she’s acting all cool with you.

#3 No Gifts

“Let’s not buy each other Christmas presents this year and save the money.”

What a load of crap! She wants the full shebang — flowers, chocolates, racy lingerie and something sparkly and gold. She’s saying what she thinks you want to hear, but deep down she’s expecting you to read her mind and make her feel like a princess.

#4 Cheap Cheap

“My new handbag was 70% off!”

All women downplay the cost of the things they buy. The truth is it cost a small fortune, and she doesn’t want you to think she’s silly for buying it.
