Doesn't Confide in You

Women love to talk to their husbands about their day, the kids and almost everything else. If your wife suddenly stops talking and confiding in you or she no longer seeks your advice or opinions, then most likely she is getting her counsel from someone else.

Frequently Gone

Secret Phone Calls

If your wife is suddenly disappearing with the phone when a call comes through or disappears to make a call in private or is making more phone calls than usual, this may indicate that she is talking to someonevshe does not want you to know about.


Sometimes a cheating wife will feel guilty; this emotion will cause her to either be more affectionate to you than normal or she will pick fights with you. When women picks fights with their husband for no reason, they are trying to settle the guilty feelings they are having. These behavioral changes occur because she is feeling guilty over the affair and she is having a hard time in dealing with the emotional side.
