11 Signs of a Cheating Wife

You are truly, madly, deeply in love with your wife. You’ll do anything for her, short of giving her the moon and the stars. You’ve burned for her ever since you met, and you still have that same hot feeling in your chest whenever you look at her.

But does she feel the same way about you? Unfortunately, as with most things in life, marriage isn’t always a bed of roses. And you may think you know what she’s up to when she’s away.

Chances are she’s already given her heart to someone else if you see these 11 signs of a cheating wife.

She seems more distant.

You didn’t do anything wrong recently. And yet, when you try to talk to or touch your wife, she acts as though she doesn’t want to be anywhere near you. When you ask her what’s wrong, she says she’s fine even though her actions say otherwise.

She seems to be hiding something from you.

Normally, you’d be open to each other about everything. But now, every time you do so much as touch her laptop, she snatches it away and snaps at you to “Mind your own business!” It’s like there’s something on her laptop she doesn’t want you to see.

She’s out with her “girl friends” more than usual.

If it’s a choice between a cozy evening with you, and a rowdy night out with her “girl friends,” she chooses the latter. You find this odd, because she’s always been accommodating to you before. And why is it that her “girls’ night out” is now every Friday to Sunday, instead of every Sunday only? Something’s not right.

She smells of another man’s cologne.

This is one obvious sign. Unless she’s buying cologne for you and testing it on herself (which is highly unlikely), it’s possible she spends a lot of her time in the arms of another man.

She has changed or adopted new habits.

Your wife was never into cigarettes or alcohol before. So why is she taking up these vices now? One possible reason is that someone — a lover, perhaps — influenced her into smoking and drinking.

She’s getting more beautiful — but not for you.

Before, your wife wasn’t overly conscious of her looks. Now, she can’t go out of the house unless she’s in a tight-fitting mini dress, thick makeup and done up hair. She tells you things like “What, I can’t look pretty for myself now?” but you know better.

She’s become a spendthrift too.

You notice unusual charges showing up in your bank account. When you confront your wife about them, she tearfully tells you it’s for “retail therapy.” But when you ask her for receipts as proof, she can’t or won’t show them to you.

She isn’t as enthusiastic in bed as before.

You used to look forward to sex with your wife. Now, you don’t feel free to do it with her anymore, because she always pushes you away. It’s either your “performance” has stagnated, or she feels guilty for thinking of another man when she’s in the throes of pleasure with you.

She avoids your friends and family.

If you haven’t noticed her cheating yet, someone within your inner circle will (or has already). She’s afraid of this, and wants to avoid any awkward confrontations whenever possible.

She criticizes you for the tiniest things.

Subconsciously, your wife is looking for reasons to justify her cheating. So when you make the slightest mistake, she uses it as a reason to make you feel bad for her actions. She might even say things like “If I’d known you’d be like this, I would have married another man instead!”

She shows signs of guilt.

At the same time, she’s painfully aware she’s doing something wrong. She might avoid eye contact, or always position her body away from you. Overall, the impression she gives is of someone carrying a heavy burden, but is reluctant to share that burden for some reason.

Whether your wife is guilty of cheating or not, you’ll want to keep the signs above in mind. That way, you can decide the best course of action for your marriage before it’s too late.
