If your spouse never takes business trips or feels the need to travel to work, this could be a sign that he or she is having a weekend getaway or affair with another partner. There is no protection on the street that offers the secret life and romance of a spouse or partner.
An important sign of infidelity is when a cheater spends less time with his spouse and more time with others on activities, so the uncheated spouse feels he has a spouse who is not present when the two are together. This is particularly true if the spouse is on the phone to someone else when they are told it is not working. Christine, a client, calls the spouse at work to make sure they are both in the office.

If the faithful partner is not aware of their suspicions, it may be because they feel incompetent in the relationship, do not expect to be irritated by changes in simple things, or exhibit affective reactions in the early stages of infidelity.
