So the question one must ask themselves is: Wouldn’t you want to know if your spouse or lover was having an affair?
Would you want to catch a cheating spouse and be able to confront them directly with full-proof evidence?
Figuring out if your Spouse is Having an Affair
If you really want to know if your partner is having an affair there are plenty of very quick and simple ways to determine this.
- Hire a private eye or detective – This was the way people in the past could undeniably determine if there was infidelity in the relationship.
Yet today hiring a private detective isn’t necessarily a good idea. It could take a detective weeks to have the proof you’re looking for.
Most people have seen the show “Cheaters” and are careful to take extra precautions when they’re having an affair.
Your partner could be unfaithful with someone that lives hundreds of miles away and your detective isn’t going to travel great distances unless you have deep pockets.
-Confront your spouse. You could just confront your spouse and ask them if they are cheating on you but as common sense might dictate, this is not a good strategy.
They are likely to deny it and if anything take extra precautions including temporarily ending the affair only to resume it at a later date after your suspicions have subsided.
-Confront your mutual friends. Sometimes there are mutual friends who know your spouse is having an affair or about to have an affair. You could just ask them point blank if they know anything or not.
Unfortunately again this is not a sound strategy because often the person questioned may deny it to avoid involvement or may be the guilty party themselves.
In addition, if their loyalty is to your cheating spouse, they will often inform them behind your back of your suspicions so that they can take extra steps to hide the affair from you.
In fact, whether it’s’ confronting your spouse directly or by asking those around you, you’re only making it more difficult to catch a cheating spouse and find out the truth.
