Wives That Cheat — 5 Common Signs She’s Unfaithful

Hey there, Steve here and welcome to this week’s private eye post where I’ll be covering the common signs of cheating in married women.

A common misconception (made especially by men,) is that women are far less likely to cheat compared with their husbands. As I mentioned in my last post, my experience as an investigator tells me the numbers are equally split between men and women.

And this week, I wanted to get some numbers on married women who cheat. I found a survey where 55% of married women admitted to extramarital sex at some point during their marriage. Plus, I discovered that in general wives are more likely to have an affair the older they get!

#1 – The Odds Are Not In Your Favour

I’m not a huge fan of generalisations and stereotyping. I’ve been shocked by all sorts of people, so I try not to let any personal bias I may naturally feel to affect any of my work. It’s vital that I keep the integrity of every individual investigation.

But you may be surprised to discover that wives who adhere to certain profiles are much more likely to cheat?

Here’s the list:

  • Aged 35+ years
  • Married for 7+ years
  • Working
  • More pay = more likely to cheat
  • Previously married
  • Has a parent who cheated

Outside of this profile, there’s another specific time in a woman’s life when she is more likely to cheat. It’s mums of 12-month-old children!


#2 – The “Solo” Marriage

They say that love is blind. And women know other women are much more likely to pick up on signs of cheating—more so than their husbands.

So, it’s not unusual for a husband of an adulterous wife to tell us they no longer have much of a “together” social life with friends and family.

Typically, the cheating wife will keep her distance from friends and family when they’re with their husbands. It’s kind of like the marriage is solo—isolated from social gatherings.


#3 – Girls Nights In Overdrive

One common excuse cheating wives use is to say they’re having a girl’s night. So, if your wife has started going out with her friends more than before, there may be a cover-up going on.

You have to take this with a pinch of salt. If it’s just a one-off thing, so be it. But if it’s starting to become a regular routine, there may be a strong cause for concern.


#4 – Workmate Chitter Chatter

Most wives who cheat still don’t like telling bare-faced lies. But it’s still not uncommon for a straying wife to talk about the person they’re doing the dirty with.

And because many affairs begin in the workplace, you may find she’s suddenly talking about a male work colleague much more frequently than would be normal. Of course, this will be in the most innocent of ways.

So, if you hear this in her conversation with you, it’s probably time you hire an investigator to find out what’s really going on.


#5 – Sex Change

I’m not talking about physical surgery but rather changes in her sexual behaviour with you.

She may become more aggressive and adventurous in bed, when before she adopted a more loving style of sex. Alternatively, she may have lost her appetite for sex when before you enjoyed a healthy marital sex life. The key is the change in sexual behaviour. If you become aware of these types of differences in her approach to sex, it’s right for you to be suspicious.



While there are many obvious physical signs of cheating, verbal clues to infidelity, cheating body language you can typically see in a cheating wife, these 5 signs of adultery are displayed in many of the cheating spouse cases we investigate.
