The cheating husband’s physical appearance will change, he knows it has to. A man having an affair (or even thinking about having one) will want to make himself more attractive. He will begin to dress smarter, his appearance will alter in some way. Be alert for new clothes, new aftershave and his personal hygiene. These are usually the most visible signs of infidelity. If he suddenly has a personal makeover there is a good chance he's trying to impress someone, that someone may not be you!
A cheating spouses conversation and mannerisms will change. Listen carefully to what your husband chooses or refuses to talk about. Usually his conversations would include the same places and people, after all we are creatures of habit. Suddenly he starts talking of new places and people using very different tones in his voice and mannerisms.
The cheating husband will definitely use work as an excuse. Obviously, one of the main excuses to meet with someone, is work. Here are a few of the most common work related excuses, ‘I have a meeting tonight, so I’ll be back late, don’t wait up’. ‘I have a weekend training seminar to go to, I don’t really want to go, but I guess I’ll have to’. So look for definite changes in his work habits, as the affair progresses the time away with work will increase.
A cheating husband will spend, spend, spend! So watch carefully, he will say the money is for business lunches, gifts for company sales reps, employees, etc. Remember, when a husband is cheating, he will come up with many weird and wonderful excuses. It doesn’t matter how careful the cheating husband is, the financial cost will eventually have an effect on the majority of families.
The cheating husband will relate to the family differently. The way your husband communicates with you will change, suddenly the little things that used to bother him, no longer do. An example could be, kids making a noise when he comes in from work, used to annoy him, but suddenly he smiles and makes a pleasant comment about the kids. This is a sign that his mind is on something else, something that he finds very pleasant. He suddenly has more patience, used to get annoyed about the small things, suddenly he doesn’t seem bothered.
