5 Signs of a Cheating Husband

He is paying more attention to his looks

This is a very common sign of cheating husband. If your husband has suddenly started to pay more attention to his appearance, that can indicate he has an interest in some other woman and he wants to impress her. Of course, there can also be other reasons for this kind of behaviour, but usually, when men start to take better care of their looks it is to impress a woman. That is why this potential sign of cheating should be taken seriously.

If your husband has started to do more exercise than usual and has started to buy new clothing on his own, you can pose an innocent, half-joking question to him (such as “are you trying to impress me or some new pretty colleague”) and see how your husband reacts to this. If he gets uneasy, that might be a sign your husband is cheating on you or is thinking of having an affair with another woman. Your husband might also get defensive and angry and start to accuse you of being too suspicious. If your husband reacts like this, you should be alarmed. If your husband is not having an affair or if he is not interested in some other woman and attempting to impress her with his new looks, there is no reason for such an excessive reaction to such an innocent question.

He is guarding his computer and cell phone

This is another serious sign of cheating husband. If there is nothing to hide, why would your husband mind if you see what he is doing with his computer or to whom he is calling with his cell phone and sending text messages? Of course we all have right to have our privacy and it is natural that your husband may not want you to read his emails or look into his cell phone, but if you observe a clear change in the behavior of your husband in this regard, you should be alarmed and treat it as a possible sign of cheating.

The behavior of your husband has changed

Your husband may have become more distant or alternatively more affectionate towards you. Becoming more affectionate can be due to bad conscience because of an affair or cheating. Of course if your husband becomes more affectionate towards you, you should not immediately start to suspect your husband is having an affair. But if you see other potential signs of cheating described on this page in addition to his sudden interest towards you, you should be alarmed.

He is spending more time away from home

Sudden increase in the amount of “boys nights out” or other activities outside home may be a sign that your husband is having an affair. Being away from home more than before is very common sign of cheating husband. If your husband loves you and cares for you, why would he not want to spend his time with you? Of course it is natural that your husband wants to have his own time and space, we all need some private time for ourselves. But if there is a sudden increase in this kind of behavior, it can be a sign your husband is having an affair.

He becomes angry and defensive when you ask if he is having an affair

Imagine if your husband asked you if you have an affair (and you would not have an affair at that moment). How would you react? You would most likely simply deny having an affair instead of becoming furious and starting to defend yourself. But if you would have an affair and you would not want your husband to find out about it, you would most likely invest a bit more time and effort in hiding your affair, when your husband is asking about it. If your husband is cheating on you, you see this kind of defensive reaction when you ask if he is having another woman. This is serious sign of cheating husband and it should alert you to dig deeper to see if your husband really is having an affair.

Remember that there are people who get very insulted and angry when they are being accused of something they have not done. You alone know the personality of your husband. If his reaction is different from his reaction in other situations when he has not done something and is being asked about it, then you should be alarmed and take it as possible sign of cheating.
