More than 50% of marriages end in divorce in the United States. The breakdown of a marriage can be caused by many different elements but one of the most common reasons people get divorced is that one of the spouses cheats on the other. If you suspect that your spouse may be cheating on you, there are many things to look for to find out for certain. Most of the things can be found out on your own but some people choose to hire a California private investigator to do surveillance or even check suspicious financial behaviors through a California asset search.
Most people are not capable of hiding the fact that they are cheating. One thing to look for is a change in their schedule and work hours. If all of the sudden they are spending more time at work and needing to travel for work when they never traveled before, that is a big hint they could be cheating. If they claim they need to work on the weekends when they used to only work during the week is another suspicious clue that they are being unfaithful. Many people cheat on their spouse with a coworker so extra time spent “on work” with so and so could also be a red flag. They often think they are covered under the “it is for work” reason but an increased amount of time with a coworker is usually reason that they could be cheating with that person.
Another big clue that the spouse is cheating is when they completely change their outward appearance and are now taking extra steps to work on their image. Many people that are cheating, lose weight and get into shape to impress the person they are cheating with just like they maybe did when they were single and dating. Also, spending more money on themselves could be a clue that they are being unfaithful. For example, if a wife is cheating she may start buying more provocative clothing and lingerie after years of wearing flannel nightgowns to bed.
Technology is also a great device to use to determine if your spouse is cheating. Most people have an electronic trail of their behaviors that they may not think of. Emails, text messages, phone records and credit card bills are all things that can prove that your spouse is cheating on you. This too, helps to have actual evidence to show when you confront your spouse with your suspicions.
If you have a gut feeling that your spouse is cheating but they continue to deny it then you may have to resort to hiring a private detective to follow your spouse to get some concrete evidence for your case. The biggest indicator of whether or not to pursue finding out if your husband or wife is cheating on you is your gut feeling and your intuition on the matter. Usually that is the strongest indicator of what is truly going on and with a little follow up on that gut feeling you will usually find your answer.
