Alright gentlemen, here we go. Let\u2019s start at the beginning. Nothing can wreck a marriage faster than finding out your wife is cheating on you.\n\n\n\nIt\u2019s hard enough to give a girl your heart. Commitment is a slippery slope after all. With a divorce rate approaching 50% in Ghana, \u201ctil death do us part,\u201d has kind of lost some of its teeth in recent years.\n\n\n\nAFROSAGES does not want to feed your paranoia, and there may be plenty of good reasons why a wife sometimes acts the way she does. And those reasons don\u2019t always mean that your wife is cheating on you. Sometimes, wives just do things for no apparent reason to you. Imagine that.\n\n\n\nBut if you suspect she\u2019s being unfaithful, there are bound to be some telltale signs.\n\n\n\nAnd you\u2019re a fool to think that cheating is only about what may or may not go on between the sheets with somebody else.\n\n\n\nThat\u2019s because cheating has so many levels. Sure, she can cheat on you in a physical sense. Sex is the biological imperative after all. But cheating can also take place on a psychological, social and financial level too.\n\n\n\nAnd the wounds they produce can be just as painful as suspecting she\u2019s having an extra-marital romp at your expense.\n\n\n\nHere\u2019s the part that really sucks. Sometimes a woman will try hard to cover her tracks. But it may be even worse when she doesn\u2019t try hard to cover them at all. Call it disrespect. Call it indifference.\n\n\n\nBut when the signs are there in plain sight, you\u2019re almost forced to confront them. And that can be a really crappy experience, especially if you\u2019re still in love and still relatively happy with your wife.\n\n\n\nThey say ignorance is bliss, so if you\u2019d rather not look for signs and want to be left blissfully unaware, stop reading now.\n\n\n\nOtherwise, read on\u2026\n\n\n\nSigns Your Wife is Cheating on You\n\n\n\n1 | She guards her phone with her life.\n\n\n\nDepending on your level of trust and your pre-existing relationship with your wife, you may have always shared phone stuff with each other, or you may have kept a respectful distance. When those boundaries appear to change and she\u2019s a lot less forthcoming with what\u2019s on her phone, it could raise some questions. If she stores images on iCloud and you have access, you may be able to learn something that way, if you\u2019re feeling threatened.\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n2 | Her social media habits have changed.\n\n\n\nSome wives go through phases where everything is a post. Other times, the types of things that get posted will change. If you get a sense that the type of content or frequency of content is changing, you might want to dig a little deeper to see who\u2019s now following her on social media or if there are some tell-tale comments from guys you don\u2019t know, or worse yet, don\u2019t trust.\n\n\n\n3 | She changed her passwords.\n\n\n\nThis will feed your paranoia for sure. She\u2019s entitled to her privacy, but if it comes at a time when you\u2019re having marital problems, or you\u2019re able to add this to a list of uneasy evidence that something may be going on, it could be a contributing factor to your wife wanting privacy because she is up to something.\n\n\n\n4 | You find your wife has been lying to you about a lot of little things.\n\n\n\nSmall white lies make it easier to tell big fat black lies. If you catch your wife in the habit of being less than forthcoming with small things like where $50 was spent in your bank account, or why she was late due to traffic when the app said the roads were all clear, it\u2019s a sign. If you can\u2019t trust her with the small things, how can you trust her with the big things?\n\n\n\n5 | She\u2019s working out a lot more.\n\n\n\nIt may be a mid-life crisis or it may be Bob at the office that\u2019s spurring her to get into shape. People go in cycles when it comes to staying in shape, so it may be nothing. Just look at it in the overall context of what else is going on in your life as well. It could also mean that her new hook-up is actually meeting her at the gym!\n\n\n\n6 | She can be hard to get a hold of when she\u2019s out running errands.\n\n\n\nShe may be tuning you out because she is tuning into someone else. If your wife is always hardwired into her phone and then you hit a stretch where she\u2019s not, that\u2019s a change worth noting. Give her the benefit of the doubt, but do make sure you ask her why, just to see what her answer is.\n\n\n\n7 | She\u2019s going out a lot more with friends you barely recognize.\n\n\n\nA separate social life is cool and often times needed to maintain a healthy marriage. But if she\u2019s running around with a different crowd, that means she may also be meeting different men as well. With long-standing friends, you always have the advantage of familiarity to quiz them and look for anything your wife might be up to, but you lose that when she starts running with the new girls on the block.\n\n\n\n8 | There are irregularities in your bank account or credit cards.\n\n\n\nIf you can\u2019t match up the vast majority of the things she charges up with the stories she tells you about where she\u2019s been, then you could be looking at a red flag. Paying for things in cash when they have been paid for by a debit or credit card in the past are also ways to cover up tracks and details about messing around.\n\n\n\n9 | She opens up separate lines of credit or gets a separate credit card.\n\n\n\nLots of spouses have separate accounts and it\u2019s no big thing. But if you\u2019ve been having trouble in your marriage, guess who might be setting the table for one in the weeks and months to come?\n\n\n\n10 | She is always the first one to grab the mail.\n\n\n\nIf she\u2019s in charge of domestic issues, and it\u2019s normal, then this is no big thing. But if you normally get the mail, or if you start noticing things coming in the post that are addressed only to her, it wouldn\u2019t be out of line to maybe quiz her a little bit and watch her reaction. If you catch her off guard in something postal she\u2019s doing that\u2019s a precursor or a part of cheating, her poker face may not be enough to save her from suspicion.\n\n\n\n11 | She doesn\u2019t take interest in your social life anymore.\n\n\n\nNot only that, she encourages you to hang out with the guys a lot more than normal. Shuffling you off to the side gives her added free time to get into mischief. She may also dip out at the last minute due to mysterious illnesses, or not want to hear about what a great time you had at a concert or watching your favorite team play. This kind of stuff can ebb over time, especially when kids are involved, but it could also mean she\u2019s now playing for a different team as well.\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n12 | She avoids your friends.\n\n\n\nMentally and physically dipping out on your social circle is a real clue that she\u2019s at least not happy, and at worst, she\u2019s found a new friend to tickle her fancy. Keep in mind that your friends can often spot when your wife is acting differently and many times, wives know this. So rather than try to bluff through a situation, they\u2019ll avoid that possibility completely. You can\u2019t tell a lie if you don\u2019t put yourself in a position to be asked about it.\n\n\n\n13 | She gets angry with you a lot more.\n\n\n\nHello? When she gets angry with you whether you did something wrong or not, it makes it easier for her to justify cheating on you as well. \u201cI\u2019m angry with him, so I\u2019ll do this bad thing to make me feel better.\u201d It may not be logical, but it does happen.\n\n\n\n14 | She spends less and less time with you.\n\n\n\nYour wife used to be your best friend. You loved doing all kinds of things together. You went to sappy chick flicks and she went to college football games, even when both of you would rather be somewhere else. Mentally divorcing you is one of the first steps to physically cheating on you. There\u2019s a hint of selfishness mixed in here and its one thing to lose passion for being with each other over time, but quite another to actively look to avoid spending time with each other.\n\n\n\nAlso read;Why Did You Cheat On Your Husband?My Wife Cheated On Me\n\n\n\nDo you have a story you want to share with\u00a0AFROSAGES\u00a0and the world, please hit us up on\u00a0FACEBOOK,\u00a0INSTAGRAM\u00a0AND\u00a0TWITTER.
