Is your spouse having an affair? In this YouTube video, I’m going to share with you 6 signs that this might be happening to you.
Hey YouTube, Brad here. I’m YouTube’s #1 marriage and breakup expert, and this is probably one of the most difficult topics that I’ll ever talk about. Infidelity is one of the biggest marriage destroyers. And a lot of the times, even the strongest of marriages can’t even survive an affair.
But before I dive into these signs, I have to talk about a couple important facts… and these facts might be a little unsettling to you no matter what situation you’re in. Fact number one is that your partner could be showing almost all of these signs and still not be cheating on you. You’re going to have to take this video with a grain of salt because you can never be 100% sure until your partner admits it to you… or if you catch him or her red handed. However, the signs I’m about to talk about are most definitely an indicator of something wrong in your marriage, so it’s important to keep this in mind moving forward.
The second fact is… your partner could be displaying almost NONE of these results and STILL be having an affair on you. In fact, it’s estimated that the vast majority of affairs go undetected. I know, if you’re in a happy marriage, this may be a hard fact to swallow… but facts are facts. Unfortunately, some people can be such amazing liars that their partners never find out.
We also have to keep in mind that affairs can happen in good marriages too. Just because an affair takes place doesn’t mean the person committing the act is evil or an ‘awful person’. It is possible to salvage a marriage even after something as daunting as an affair. Just remember that no matter how difficult things may be for you in your marriage, you must maintain a strong, confident, and positive outlook if you have any chance to save your marriage.
So without further ado, here is my list of the top 6 signs your spouse may be having an affair.
1.) Your spouse gets aggravated easily. If your spouse is constantly picking fights with you about seemingly mundane things, it might be a sign that something is brewing deep down inside. So if your spouse is making you feel like you can’t do anything right, or you just seem like you can’t do anything to make your spouse calmer and more forgiving, it could be a sign their mind has been wandering lately. If this is happening to you, it’s important to NOT snap back at your spouse… for now, keep a cool head and find the right time to calmly ask your spouse why they’re acting this way.
2.) Your spouse is becoming emotionally distant from you. If your spouse is acting a little quieter, more withdrawn, or even depressed and sad, it could be a sign that there’s something going on that he or she isn’t telling you. Again, like I said at the beginning of this video, this might be a sign of something that has nothing to do with an affair, but rest assured that if your spouse is acting this strange, you can bet there’s something up. Tread carefully when you’re with an emotionally distanced spouse… if something is really bugging him or her, you could really tip them off with the wrong words. Instead of prying, approach your spouse from a position of support…say something like, “I know something is wrong, and I really want to help. If you don’t want to talk about it now, then I understand.” Start from there and see where it goes.
3.) Your spouse is working longer hours. If your spouse is working beyond their typical work hours, then this might be a sign that there’s some infidelity that might be happening. If he or she is coming home late and/or taking some strange work trips, this can be a big indicator of infidelity.
4.) Your spouse wants more “space”. If your spouse is uncharacteristically asking for more space or ‘room to breathe’, you can be sure that something is up…especially if things haven’t always been this way. If your spouse is asking for more space, then give it to him or her and continue monitoring how they’re acting. Sooner or later, you’ll be able to bring up this issue to your spouse and attempt to get to the bottom of their peculiar behaviour.
