12 Signs Your Husband is Cheating

There is perhaps no worse punch in the gut than discovering your husband is having an affair. You loved honestly, made vows you believed in, and while you always knew infidelity could happen, you never thought it would happen to you.

The signs of marital infidelity are rarely as obvious as lipstick on his collar. If you’ve ever had the nagging suspicion that your husband was being unfaithful, check out these following signs of marital infidelity from our expert friends at HuffPost Divorce. Hell yeah it’s better to know.

    Maybe he wanted to update his look (bothered no man ever), or maybe he wanted to update his look for someone else. Relationship coach Wendy Kay suggests taking particular interest in any new activities or behaviors your husband is exhibiting.
