Is Your Significant Other Really “Working Late”?

If you have suspicions that your partner may be cheating on you, finding out that your suspicions were right is never easy. Still, many people would rather have conclusive evidence of an affair than to be left with lingering doubts about their partner’s fidelity. In this way, it makes sense that people turn to the expertise of private investigators to confirm their suspicions or resolve the issue without having to confront them. We’ve prepared a list of signs to look for that may indicate that your partner isn’t being completely faithful or truthful about a situation.

Changing Habits

If your spouse has, without fail, come from work every day for the past few years at 5 pm but has recently pushed their arrival time to 9 pm or so, something may be amiss. Or, maybe they used to go out with friends once a week and now are hitting the town more frequently without offering much detail in explaining where they’re going.

Occasionally there’s a valid reason why you can’t join them on their outings, but they should be making an effort to include you. Invite yourself along the next time they go out with friends and gauge their response. If they’re working late, offer to bring them dinner, and if they decline, look into the situation further.

Business Trips

Your spouse may claim that they have to take a business trip, even though their company’s budget has been slashed. While business trips may have been short in the past, now they’re becoming extra long weekends. They may say it’s against company policy to invite you along. Or, they may come up with an excuse of not being able to afford to extend a business trip into a mini-vacation for both of you.

Extra Grooming

Your partner may be buying expensive clothes and paying extra attention to their hair and how they present themselves. They could be giving a boost to their self-esteem, but there may be another reason for this “extra effort”.

Secretive Accounts

You and your spouse may have used to have an open-door policy regarding shared use of finances, but now they’re insistent on managing it all. They may be frequently wary of you snooping around in their wallet or briefcase. There’s a clear difference between one partner taking care of balancing the chequebook and someone being dodgy and secretive about checking account balances.

If some of these scenarios relate to your situation, don’t panic. You don’t want to put a valuable relationship in jeopardy over what may be unsubstantiated worries. However, if you see your relationship changing and you sense that something suspicious is going on, trust your intuition.
