First it may motivate the divorce, or prove to be the final straw. Or it might establish a religious basis for a divorce. Or an affair may create an opportunity for the aggrieved spouse to get out of the marriage while the other spouse is distracted by her new paramour, providing opportunities that may not have been there otherwise.
The bottom line is that suspecting that your spouse may be having an affair can be a distressing and challenging situation. There are some tell tell signs though that should trigger suspicion if you’re observing them in your spouse. It’s important to remember that these signs are not definitive proof, and there could be other explanations for these behaviors.

It’s important to approach these signs with caution and not jump to conclusions. Open and honest communication with your spouse is often the best way to address these concerns.
