Extramarital affairs, whether they are physical or purely emotional, are far too common these days. While a commonly accepted statistic is that up to 50% of marriages will end up in divorce, the number of married-but-uncommitted partners is substantially higher. If you suspect that your spouse is cheating on you, one of the best things that you can do for yourself is find out if they are, in fact, seeing or talking to somebody else. Here are three ways that you can catch an unfaithful spouse.
Check their cell phone
Nowadays, it is exceptionally likely that if there is any unfaithfulness in your marriage, that your spouse's cell phone is being used to commit their extramarital activities. The good-amongst-the-bad news here is that there are quite a few different ways that you can identify an unfaithful spouse by their cell phone activity. You can look through their sent and received calls, you can check their voicemail, you can read their text messages, or you can send the cell phone into a digital forensics investigator so that they can recover deleted text messages, e-mails, or possibly even the cell phone's call history.
Especially if your spouse has engaged in a physical relationship, there is a good chance that they have used their cell phone during the course of committing the affair. So, checking your spouse's cell phone is one of the most reliable ways to catch an unfaithful spouse.
Catch them in a lie
If your spouse is being unfaithful, it is guaranteed that they are lying to you in some capacity. They need to cover their tracks to account for hours of the day that they were not available, the phone calls that are showing up on the caller ID, or because they need to make excuses to head out of the house to either talk to, or see, the person with whom they're cheating on you with. Unless your spouse is a master liar, there is a good chance that it would not take much effort to elicit conflicting stories for their day-to-day activities or out-of-the-norm occurrences around the home.
Monitor their internet usage
Overwhelmingly, extramarital activity either starts, or is limited to, activity on the internet. Statistically, women are just as likely to utilize the internet for extramarital activity as men are, if not more likely. Like checking your spouse's cell phone activity, there are quite a few different ways you can go about monitoring your spouse's internet usage. You could install tracking software on your computer that would monitor your spouse's keystrokes, capture their e-mails, and keep record of the websites they visit.
Additionally, you could hire an online investigator to check and see if your spouse is using married-but-dating websites, adult chat websites, or any number of websites that cater to singles or married people looking to cheat on their partner.
While there are a large number of ways that you could catch an unfaithful spouse in the act, these three methods we have outlined here are amongst the most reliable, and probably easiest ways to catch them and find out if they are, in fact, cheating on you.
