It is difficult to determine how many marriages end as a result of adultery, but unfortunately, most data suggests that adultery occurs in surprisingly large numbers. While the discovery that a spouse is cheating on you can impact your entire life, it is a wise idea to learn about divorce as soon as possible so that you can take the steps necessary to protect yourself. The following are the most common signs that a spouse is cheating on you.

If your spouse loses interest in intimacy, this is often an indicator that he or she is cheating on you. Sometimes, a spouse might even go so far as declaring that he or she is no longer attracted to you.
Your Spouse is Always Busy
Affairs take a substantial amount of time. This means that many spouses often lie about what they are doing so that they have enough time to see the other person. While this might mean that a spouse begins to work much more than before, other spouses might begin to spend more time with friends or co-workers.
Your Spouse’s Financial Habits Change
A spouse who is having an affair will have unusual spending patterns. In some situations, a spouse’s spending might increase drastically. Or, in other situations, a spouse might open a separate bank account. In many cases, by carefully monitoring your spouse’s financial activity, you will be able to determine if there is an affair or something else unusual occurring.
