Stop, Look And Listen To Your Spouse

Stop everything you’re doing and look around you. What’s been going on in your world lately? Have there been tough obstacles? Did you face them alongside your partner or did you shut them out? 

Infidelity comes in many forms; often leaving both spouses with the feeling of being overwhelmed, confused, and worried about the future. It’s natural for you to have concerns. But what if those concerns are true? A licensed marriage counselor can help you see past an affair and into the future.  

So, listen when your spouse brings up important issues. Take note of their behavior and the level of intimacy you’re both experiencing. Many people may ignore the signs of an affair. Quite possibly because the topic itself infers one of the hardest, most destructive problems a couple could ever face. But, your honesty and willingness to push through those difficult moments are a key factor in marriage counseling and affair recovery as a whole. 

4 Signs Of Infidelity You May Not Know

  • When you walk in a room, your spouse immediately hides their phone so it’s less likely that you’ll be able to notice when a new notification is received. A change in phone use can often be one of the first signs of an online affair. 
  • Your spouse sends private messages to the opposite sex on social media. This may be in the form of a direct message or instant message. If it’s being hidden, it’s probably not being talked about. 
  • You can’t shake that feeling that something is wrong. Go with your gut. If you keep asking yourself if your spouse is cheating, it may be true. 
  • Whenever your significant other’s cellphone or social media accounts are open, you’re drawn to check them out. This may indicate a loss in trust among you and your partner.
