Have you had by the nagging feeling that your husband just might be having an affair? Well, this article will give you some tips for either confirming your suspicions or putting your mind at ease.
It’s only natural for lovers to want to buy gifts for each other, but this exchange of gifts could prove to be a cheating husband’s undoing. An observant wife can find some very important clues if she knows where to look and what to look for.
As we all know, gifts cost money. And no man who’s cheating on his wife is going to buy his girlfriend a cheap token of his affection. If he doesn’t want to incur her wrath, he must buy her a decent gift.
Unless he’s been squirreling away small sums here and there over a period of weeks or months, the money has to come from somewhere. Have there been any suspicious withdrawals from your bank accounts? Have there been any large, unexplained ATM withdrawals?
How about his credit card statements? Has he made any unusual charges at jewelry stores, women’s specialty stores, or boutiques?
What about actual store receipts? If you find receipts for purchases of gift items that you didn’t personally receive, that should raise a huge red flag in your mind. Just who did he give these gifts to, if not to you?
Check around your home for hidden gifts. Look underneath the bed, in the back of a drawer, on the floor at the back of the closet, or the back of a rarely used shelf.
Don’t forget to search the car too. Under the seat, in the trunk, in the glove compartment or the tire well. If you find a hidden gift, don’t automatically jump to conclusions unless it’s obvious that the gift was not intended for you (too large, too small, a color or style that he knows you wouldn’t wear, or has another woman’s name attached).
But if a few days roll around and you still haven’t received the gift (but it's now gone), then obviously it was given to someone else. Make it your business to find out who.
Beverley was quite ecstatic when she discovers a small box containing a hand crafted, one of a kind gold bracelet that she’d been admiring for a long time. But the box soon disappeared and Beverley never received the bracelet.
A few weeks later, at her health club, Beverley noticed a woman wearing a bracelet identical to the one she had found in the box. After some discreet checking around, and finding several other clues to corroborate her suspicions, Beverly discovered that her husband and this woman were having an affair.
Laura found a gift box containing a very sexy satin negligee in the trunk of her husband's car. He tried to pass it off as a gift he’d bought for her, but upon closer examination she saw that it was 5 sizes too small.
He tried in vain to convince Laura that the salesclerk had mistakenly put the wrong size item in the box. But since she’d previously noticed other telltale signs of an affair, his excuses were no help to him.
If your husband gives or receives a gift of an extremely personal nature, warning bells should go off. No woman other than yourself should be giving your husband six pairs of silk boxer shorts for Christmas unless it’s his mother or sister.
Also be suspicious if your husband gives or receives a disproportionately expensive gift to or from any woman who is supposedly just a casual friend or business associate. Any unusually expensive gifts that he receives should be regarded with suspicion, especially if he tries to pass them off as items he purchased for himself, but for which he has no receipts.
If you have noticed other warning signs of infidelity during the previous weeks or months, gifts could provide the missing pieces of the infidelity puzzle. Sit down and have a very serious talk with your husband because your marriage may be in jeopardy. Find out what’s going on now before it’s too late.
