I Confess – To Forgive a Cheating Husband

I often heard older women say they can tell when their man is cheating. They knew by looking for certain tell-tale signs like not allowing you to answer his cell phone; if you live together, him speaking softly on the telephone especially when he never used to talk on the phone much; and a different perfume smell on him or lipstick on his shirt.

The intimate things include him kissing you different or not being as affectionate or attentive as before; him not so interested in sex as often, or wanting to try different things that he never used to do before; not coming around as often, or if you're living together, staying out late or finding reasons to have to leave home and, of course, him passing on a sexual infection to you.

Infidelity is Just Human

It's easy to forget that we're just mammals wearing clothes. I'm always reminded when the spring racing carnival comes around of the primal urge we have as animals to procreate. The females of the species slink about in their strappy, low-cut dresses and high heels, and the males of the species scrub up in their cheap suits and wraparound sunglasses, both drawn to the breeding ground during mating season, and then become socially lubricated with alcohol. Sure, there's the odd accountant on his RDOs wearing a nappy and sporting a beer can on his head with a tube going into his mouth. He can be explained by the term "natural selection".

Infidelity a Problem? Offset Your Cheating Online

A Web site is offering people the chance to offset their infidelity by paying random strangers to remain faithful in a satirical bid to highlight its view of carbon offsetting as an "inadequate" and "misguided" response to climate change.

Cheatneutral began as a joke amongst three friends--Beth Stratford, Alex Randall and Christian Hunt - and works in two ways to tame fast females and philanderers.

Users can freely sign up to become a Cheatneutral "project", meaning they agree to remain single or monogamous in order to neutralize the cheating of somebody else. Or they can offset their own cheating by sponsoring a "project" with a one-time $2.21 payment.

Stamford Private Eye Reveals Case Secrets

Vito Colucci likes to call the days leading up to Feb. 14 Valenslyne Day. Those are the days this Stamford private eye's phone rings incessantly.

On the other end of the phone, usually, is a suspicious spouse looking for someone to spy on their cheating mate.

So when Colucci saw the Mercedes pull into his driveway and a well-dressed, good-looking man of 38 step out, he expected much of the same.

"He comes in, sits down and tells me he wants me to follow his wife," Colucci recalls. "He shows me a photograph of a beautiful blonde woman. So I start asking him the usual hundred questions — her name, the type of car she drives, where he thinks she's going. Then he tells me he wants me to start following her at 2 p.m. and asks if I can go past midnight to 2 a.m. I say sure. Then he says he wants me to call in a report every 15 to 20 minutes."

Cheating Spouse is using his own resources to cheat on his wife. Darren Morganstern - who founded the Web site for married people who want to walk on the wild side and has the motto, "Life Is Short: Have an Affair" - is sampling his own goods.

Readers Debate ‘Arranged’ Infidelity

I received hundreds of replies to my column from last week, “What to do when a spouse OKs sleeping around,” which addressed a man’s unhappiness with his wife’s offer that he discreetly sleep with other women, since she no longer has any desire for sex.

Clearly, people have very strong feelings about this. The subject of whether or not you are having enough sex within marriage is emotionally charged, as is the question of what exactly constitutes infidelity.

If You Suspect Your Lover of Infidelity, Tank Rolls into Action

The instant you lay eyes on the guy, you know exactly how Sherman "Tank" Jones got the nickname. The resemblance is remarkable.

With the body of a bulldozer and head like a wrecking ball -- let's just say you'd be ill advised to diss his mama.

Yet a big part of his job requires being invisible. Him and his size-15 alligator shoes.

As a private investigator, Tank Jones sees what isn't meant to be seen, hears what isn't meant to be heard, knows what is supposed to be secret. He's pretty sure, for example, that a client's boyfriend who ducked out the door at 5:30 for an early-morning run didn't mean to be videotaped indulging in a little side-dish activity on top of a picnic table in Elderberry Park.

Husband Finds Evidence of Wife Cheating on Wii

Every console has a number of uses, but the Wii is thus far the only one I’ve heard of catching a cheating spouse. An unnamed soldier wrote an e-mail to GoNintendo recently describing how he went to serve overseas in 2006 and found out that his wife had cheated on him at one point in October. The infidelity apparently stopped, but when he returned home this past summer, his family and friends began telling him of further incidents. Eventually this all took a toll on the marriage and he moved out and filed for divorce. Recently though, he started casually going through his Wii to look over some of the Miis he had created:

As I go through the characters I see there is a Mii that I have not created. It’s a guy strikingly similar to PBA Bowler *name deleted*. To be sure of this, I went into the Wil Message Board and click on the Calendar option. Through this menu I was able to identify the many nights my wife’s Mii and this ‘other’ Mii Character played Wii Bowling. It became clearly obvious that she couldn’t explain her way out of this. Especially since she claims that she never had contact with him after her alleged ‘kiss’ in October 2006.

Your Cheating Spouse: Recovering From an Affair and Rebuilding a Relationship

For 18 years, Anne Bercht thought she had the perfect marriage. Then one day her husband, Brian Bercht, told her he was having an affair.

“For 18 years, I was in a good marriage,” said Bercht, who lives in the Canada’s western-most province, British Columbia.

“I really prioritized marriage,” she said. “My husband and I both prioritized marriage. And when he came home one night and said he was having an affair, I was shocked. The first words I said, which was a mistake, were ‘I forgive you.’ And then, of course, I told him he could never see her again.”

When Should You Hire a Private Investigator to Catch Your Cheating Spouse?

As the author of an infidelity book packed with hundreds of signs of infidelity you can find on your own, I rarely recommend using a private investigator to catch a cheating spouse.

Sometimes You Really Need a Private Eye

However, I do think there are times when you should hire a private investigator even though there are numerous signs of infidelity you can discover for yourself. Even though my book covers practically every known sign of infidelity, certain people should never attempt to find these signs on their own. And I say this despite the fact that all the signs in my book can be found using just your own eyes and ears and your personal knowledge of your mate.

The Family Factor in Politics

No doubt about it: Everywhere you look, elected officials – and those running for office – have been scrambling to patch up troubled marriages or put a good spin on infidelity, divorce, or the problems of their kids. (Rudy’s kids are estranged from him; both Giambra and Brown have had teenage sons get in trouble with the law this year.)

All this makes one question very important as we head into national and regional elections: Does a person’s marital status – and family cohesiveness – matter anymore to voters?

Investigators Find a Way to Get Inside

It can’t always work this way, of course. It might, in fact, be a once-in-a-lifetime case, with the pursued walking into camera range of the pursuer and sitting down for coffee.

Joe Broadmeadow was sitting in a Starbucks in Providence, with his laptop in front of him, when he got a call on his cell phone from a lawyer. The lawyer wanted him to track down another lawyer, a very prominent one, and get a picture of the guy with his girlfriend.

Suspicions of infidelity worth acting on

Studies indicate that suspicions about partners having an affair turn out to be right 90 per cent of the time, says Dr Raj Persaud, a consultant psychiatrist at London's Maudsley Hospital.

It's a frightening statistic. But before you rush out and hire a detective or challenge your partner head-on, you should first be sure whether your suspicions are reasonable or just the imaginings of very jealous mind.

What you shouldn't do is let your suspicions take over your life, nor ignore them and hope they'll go away.

Helene, a British expatriate living in Hong Kong, did the latter, choosing to ignore suspicions about her husband Jon.

"Of course, the signs seem obvious looking back," she says. "Business calls on the mobile at all hours, regular business trips overseas even over weekends, a sudden interest in hair products ..."

Is Open Marriage the Modern Couple's Answer to Infidelity?

AlterNet: Sex & Relationships: Is Open Marriage the Modern Couple's Answer to Infidelity?: "When I think about open marriages, I can only conjure a stereotype: deeply unsatisfied adults, most likely going through a mid-life crisis, pathetically searching for hot sex as a solution. You know, key parties, 'The Ice Storm.' It is difficult for me to think of it as something new or current, or as something my friends would do.

But apparently, I am stuck in the past. Plenty of intelligent, successful, hip people are considering the not-quite-forsaking-all-others option on 'til-death-do-us-part. And by now, most women are familiar with the statistic heard 'round the world, publicized in an article in 'The New York Times' in January. At this time in our history, for the first time ever, there are more women living that are single than are married. Women are staying single. Couples are divorcing. Marriage isn't entirely working, at least for a subset of the population. So could non-monogamous coupling be the answer?"

BYU Professor Says Religion Plays Role in Fidelity - BYU Professor Says Religion Plays Role in Fidelity: "A BYU professor says being actively religious could help married couples remain faithful.

David Dollahite is a professor of family life at Brigham Young University. He was doing research on how religion influences marriage and family when he started to see a link between religion and fidelity.

He says there are several studies that show religious involvement helps protect marriages from infidelity. But he wanted to know more about why that might be the case.

Dollahite interviewed 57 married couples in New England and California. Each couple claimed to be highly religious and represented several different faiths, including Christianity, Islam and Judaism.

He says highly religious couples said they viewed their marriages as sacred and more important than a simple human connection."

Living a double life isn't fair to either of you

Living a double life isn't fair to either of you | Chicago Tribune: "Dear Amy: I have an issue that must be common with thousands of men, and I am hoping you can help me. I am in my mid-50s and have been married to a wonderful woman for 30-plus years. We have three children who are grown and out on their own. They are all doing very well.

When I was 12, I realized that I was different and attracted to boys, but I also was attracted to girls. I put my attraction to men aside when we got married, and I kept it aside for 30 years. I grew up in a time when gay relationships were not understood or accepted.

In the last few years, since my wife has passed through menopause and is not interested in sex, my interest in my own gender has increased. I have had a few extramarital flings with men, and now I admit to a long-term affair with one man."

Moreover, 15% of wives and 20% of husbands have cheated, according to research done for the series.

According to statistics, private investigators spend the majority of their time working on domestic investigations. Despite this fact, investigators report that clients coming to them for help with domestic matters often are reluctant or are embarrassed to share personal problems.

Not only are many investigators very experienced in this type of case, but the results from domestic investigations can dramatically improve your life.

According to statistics, up to 85% of women and up to 50% of men who believe that their lover is cheating are proven to be right eventually. This means that if you have any suspicions about your partner’s fidelity, you should consider doing something about it now. Unfortunately, your suspicions may be well-founded.

Discovering Infidelity

Investigation News - Discovering Infidelity - Investigator Directory: "Catching your lover cheatng is easier than it sounds, according to this private investigator. How a few clicks on the Web and a few dollars can confirm your suspicions or ease your mind.

The realization of infidelity brings on a number of truly horrible feelings. But the mere suspicion of a lover cheating can feel nearly as bad. Before one can “move on” they must find the truth. There are a number of signs — for those willing to enter that web — that can help locate the truth. A seasoned investigator claims to have the easiest and most affordable route to discovery.
“Some people just don’t want to know,” says infidelity investigator Mark McAlpin of “Others just don’t know how. We can’t help the former.”

But for those who are willing to find the truth, he says it isn’t that difficult. The information is generally available, he says, if you enter the suspected party’s head.

“Sometimes you have to enter their mind — really think like a cheater.”"

6 ways to prevent affairs

Today's advice: 6 ways to prevent affairs | "Therapist Dr. Frank Pittman believes virtually all cheaters deeply regret straying.

'Infidelity is the most devastating crisis for a family,' said Pittman, one of more than 200 speakers at the three-day conference at the Marriott Marquis. 'It creates an atmosphere of simmering anger, secrets and dishonesty,' he says."

Some estimates suggest half of divorces involve infidelity. But Pittman, an Atlanta psychiatrist for more than four decades, says couples can take preventive steps. Here are some pointers:

1. Stay faithful yourself: If you don't want your spouse to stray, don't have an affair, either. Many affairs are sparked by revenge.

2. Don't marry a cheater: If your husband strayed from his former wife to be with you, then he could leave you for someone else.

3. Normalize lust: It's OK to be attracted to other people; just don't act on it. It's also acceptable to let your spouse know you find a celeb attractive. But don't let your eye wander checking out every hottie that walks by."

Satina Shumake never thought her fiancé would cheat. He loved cuddling, dinner dates, TV nights and attending family gatherings. He was so predictable she could almost set her watch by his schedule.

Without warning, his habits changed. He became quiet and was absent for long, unexplained periods of time. Instead of storing condoms in a dresser drawer, like he would do normally, he carried them in his workbag."
