They say that once trust is broken in a relationship, it is hard to regain it.  This is because trust is considered the foundation of a healthy relationship. Cheating is the leading cause of mistrust and is commonly known to be the killer of most relationships. There are both subtle signs and, at other times, very obvious ones that your spouse is cheating. Therefore, as you go with your gut feeling, it is also helpful to know some of the tell signs that he is cheating on you.

He suddenly takes a keen interest in his appearance.

It may be possible that he is just trying to boost his self-esteem but then if you notice he likes to dress smarter when going somewhere without you compared to how he dresses when with you, this is a sign that should not be ignored. He might be doing this to impress someone else.

He needs a lot more privacy.

If there were no secrets between the two of you at the beginning of the relationship and now you start to feel like he is shutting you out, there is a problem. If he used to be okay with sharing his passwords on his phone but suddenly changes them and always puts the phone away from you, this is another red flag. It indicates there are things he doesn’t want you to find out, and it is a sign that he is cheating or about to cheat on you.

A change in spending habits.

When he is cheating, you will notice a change in his financial habits. If you see that he is unable to account for a lot of money spent, it could be that he is spending it on the other woman. As he tries to impress someone else, he will buy gifts and take her on dates. He is not going to show you the receipts, so pick this as another red flag.

He accuses you of cheating for no apparent reason.

Did you know that people tend to accuse others of what they are doing? If you notice that your spouse is always suspecting you of cheating for no apparent reason, this is a sign that guilt is eating them up, and they are looking for something to make you look bad to justify their actions.

He lies to you over and over.

A cheater’s best friend is dishonesty. A man who always lies to you about his whereabouts, who he is with, what he is spending money on, who he is talking to or texting on the phone, is not to be trusted. This could be one of the signs that he is cheating on you. If you notice nervousness and the tendency to over-share details more than necessary when you ask him a question, know that he is not honest. Sometimes he will turn things around and get upset with you to divert the matter, so pick this sign and know that he is up to something.
