How to Catch a Cheating Spouse

Unfortunately, in this day and age, a partner cheating is all too common.

However, there are many ways to find out whether or not your partner is cheating on you. We all need peace of mind in life and finding out the truth is of paramount importance.  The choice is simple – you can either move on with your life or realise that, in fact, no wrongdoings have been done.

It is not easy to deal with the suspicion that your partner is cheating. “What did I do wrong?”

However, you may also be right and therefore need to have confirmation one way or the other.

Detailed below are some of the steps you can take to catch a cheating spouse. Of course, hiring a private investigator is the most reliable way to get a definitive answer, in addition to irrefutable evidence.

Look for the Signs

There are some obvious signs that your partner may be cheating such as suddenly working longer hours at work or being absent from the home more often.

Taking more care of their appearance and unexplained spending are both signs, to name just a few. There are also more subtle signs such as missing family events, secret accounts and being distant and short-tempered.

With technology so prevalent in our society, you may also want to catch a cheating spouse on their iPhone or Android device.

Access Their Phone

Some cheaters will keep their phone locked so you are unable to access their texts etc.

The best way to deal with this is to ask for their password but you would need to do this without causing suspicion. Perhaps make out your phone is out of battery and you need to make an urgent call.

Investigate Their Calls and Messages

You may also suspect your partner of texting someone inappropriately and want to know how to catch a cheating spouse texting.

Again, you would need to access their phone and start by visiting their inbox and sent texts. You may also want to check their deleted messages.

You could then check their call history to see if there are any unrecognised numbers or contacts you are unaware of.

Look at Their Browser History

You could also check your partner’s browser history as that can uncover information you may be unaware of.

Look out for things such as dating websites, illicit forums and other nefarious-sounding URLs.

Hire a Private Investigator

Many people now turn to the experts when they want to catch a cheating spouse.

Specifically, private investigators who are well experienced in uncovering hidden relationships and illicit affairs. They know all the signs that show someone is cheating as well as the lesser-known red flags that you may not be aware of.

They can also provide you with physical evidence (photographs, message screenshots) of your partner’s cheating activities.


It should be noted that some of these options might not be applicable to your situation as your partner may have already gone through the effort of covering their tracks.

However, you will always have the option to hire a private investigator, as they are well skilled in catching cheating partners and have all the necessary tools at their fingertips.

It is better to know the truth so you can deal with the situation rather than constantly worrying as to whether you are right or not.
