If you suspect your husband is being unfaithful, the not knowing can be worse than finding out the truth. The only way you can be positive that your husband is cheating on you is to actually catch him in the act; however, there are several signs that your husband is conducting a well-hidden affair.
If your husband typically does not put much stock in his appearance, a sudden change can be a warning sign that he is having an affair. According to WomansDivorce.com, cheating husbands often begin wearing cologne, dress up more than usual and start focusing on losing weight or otherwise improving their appearance.
If your husband is suddenly less available than normal, this could be a sign of infidelity. Cheating husbands will often go on business trips, work late hours or be involved in running errands more often than usual. Your husband may not want you to call him at work anymore, or may not return phone calls in a timely manner. AllWomensTalk.com suggests checking his paystub for more insight if he is spending more and more time at work. Overtime will translate into more pay, so keep track of how many hours he claims to be working, and compare your notes to his paycheck.
Some husbands who are cheating will have a lower libido than usual. They may come up with excuses for not wanting to have sex or show affection. WomensDivorce.com states, however, that the reverse may be true instead; he may be suddenly interested in trying different techniques, which he may have learned from another woman.
If your husband is suddenly short with you, or picking fights for no reason, it may be a sign of infidelity. He may be looking for a reason to stray, no matter how trivial. Getting into an argument may also give him an excuse to leave the house (and pay a visit to his girlfriend), according to WomensDivorce.com. On the other hand, he may be overwhelmed by guilt, and may turn into the model husband and father. Any type of behavior that is outside the norm for your husband can be an indication that he is having an affair.
