In a perfect world, none of us would have any type of relationship issues or problems. We would be able to trust our significant others and we would not have to experience a tinge of jealousy or suspicion. When you are in love, it can sometimes be hard to figure out when things are a real concern or simply figments of our imaginations.
Have you ever thought that your husband was acting in ways that are unusual? Maybe you have struggled with yourself about it; wondering if you should dismiss it or if you should confront him. You are definitely not alone. Here are just a few things to look out for when it comes to suspicious activity.
He Stays Out Later than Usual
One sign of suspicious activity is that all of the sudden your husband starts staying out later than usual. He may make excuses that he has to work late when he has never had to work late before. He may get defensive when you ask about his work schedule or he may even tell you that he has no idea when he is going to be home from work.
He may also begin staying out later with friends. When you ask him whom he is going out with, he may be vague about details. He may say that he is going out with friends that he usually doesn't hang out with or people that you may not know very well. He may even make excuses as to why he doesn't want you to go out with him or why it may not be a great idea for you to meet these friends.
Changes in Hygiene or Dress
If your husband begins getting up earlier than usual to get ready for work, you may be rightly suspicious. He may display a new zeal for his outward appearance. He may be more concerned about his clothes matching or wearing nicer outfits. He may wear cologne more often. If your husband has a job that requires him to dress nicely on a daily basis, you may not have too much to worry about.
On the other hand, if he is all of the sudden overly concerned about his clothes and the way he smells when he is supposed to be going out with friends, this is definitely suspicious.
Changes in Sex Drive or Style
If your husband is acting differently in the bedroom, this is definitely a reason to be suspicious. There is nothing wrong if he is becoming a bit more adventurous, but if he is doing things that are totally outside of the norm, you may have a reason to be concerned.
Another thing to be wary of is if he has a sudden drop or a sudden rise in his sex drive. After you have been married for a while it is normal for there to be slight variances in bedroom behavior, however if there are changes that are too radical, it might be time to have a talk with your husband.
By no means are any of these signs 100 percent proof that your husband is being unfaithful. If you are feeling suspicious, sit down and have a talk with him. Do not accuse him but tell him how you are feeling. Ask him to take you out with him just to ease your mind. Good communication is a cornerstone of any good marriage.
