Did you know that half of the marriages in the United States end in divorce and almost 30 to 60 percent of married individuals cheat their spouse at some point during their marriages? Nearly 2 to 3 percent of all children are the product of infidelity and are knowingly or unknowingly being raised by their biological fathers or mothers. So, if you are suspicious about your spouse having an affair or illicit relationship with someone, you are more likely to be right.
Infidelity has long been a slice of human nature and it is mostly due to the opportunities of passing time away from your partner. Now the availability of social media, chat rooms, and dating sites has made it easier to involve with someone other than a spouse. As more and more females are entering the workforce, the office romances are on the upsurge for the reason that spouses have more time to spend with their coworkers than their partners.
Who is likely to cheat?
> Studies suggest that men are more likely to cheat than women but since the women are becoming financially independent they have started acting like men in case of infidelity.
> Infidelity is found to be more common among people below 30. This increase in cheating is mainly due to young people developing behaviors of having more than one sexual partner before marriage.
> Experts believe that individuals who are more influential and attractive either physically, socially or monetarily are more likely to cheat their partners. People who have a successful career, higher income and more education are more likely to cheat their partner than those with an unsuccessful career.
> Couples who have separate friends, social lives and careers are more likely to cheat one another than the partners who spend more time with each other.
> Those who like taking risks and are adventurous by nature are more likely to cheat than those who are timid by nature.
> Those who have a very high sex drive and are more interested in sex than their spouse are more likely to cheat. Usually, men tend to have a higher sex drive than women, so the odds of the former to cheat are greater.
Signs your partner is cheating
Here are the ways to know whether you are just being jealous or there is really someone your partner is involved with.
Takes and makes calls in private
There may be a need for privacy when taking or making calls, but if your spouse retreats to the other room every time when the phone rings, there may be something wrong especially when he/she has adopted this behavior suddenly and has now become more frequent.
Deletes conversation history
Normally, those who have nothing to hide do not delete their message or conversation history; at least not until the phone memory is full. If your partner deletes messages immediately after he/she finishes the conversation with someone, there may be more going on than just texting.
Do not touch you much
If you are noticing changes in your partner’s physical contact with you or your partner is repelling you with unusual excuses, it may be a clue.
Sudden change in behavior and appearance
Your partner who used to dress up conservatively has suddenly started taking interest in buying trendy clothes. There is a sudden change in his attitude, behavior, and habits and he is now more interested in ‘me time’ than ‘we time’. He spends more time out of the home, remains more secretive and aggressive than the normal routine.
How to catch a cheating spouse?
If you have doubt that your partner has second thoughts in its mind, do not face off your partner until you have proof. While it is helpful to talk to your partner to solve a relationship issue, having a discussion does not support you when it comes to infidelity. More probably your partner would not admit having an affair unless you present evidence.
This is where you can take help of a mobile spy application to discover the truth. A monitoring application helps you to read text messages, listen and record the incoming and outgoing calls, and monitor social media activities performed by your partner. Having the spy application installed on your partner’s smartphone will keep you updated about all the information stored on the monitored device also including the whereabouts of your significant one.
The modern technology has enabled you to not just monitor your partner’s phone but to operate it without having any physical contact. You can give a command to the monitored device to record videos and surrounding sounds and voices to figure out where your partner is and with whom, what he/she is doing or talking about. Isn’t it interesting?
Once you present the evidence, we are sure your partner would not try to dismiss your allegations saying that I was just flirting, or it’s just a misunderstanding and we are just friends.
