Some wives seem to know right from the start that their husbands are cheating, while others say that they never suspected a thing. Here is one sign that generally means that you husband may be cheating.
While some people are naturally more suspicious than others by nature, husbands who cheat generally start accusing their wives of cheating. If your husband suddenly starts accusing you of cheating, wants to know where you are every moment of the day, makes accusations about your loyalty and fidelity or is generally overcome with jealousy that is unwarranted, it may be because he is himself cheating.
Why would a cheating husband turn the tables to accuse you of cheating? Why would sudden jealousy be a sign that he is cheating? Well there are probably three reasons behind this.
The first is to distract the focus away from him and the fact that he is cheating. By accusing you, it ties you into defensive mode so you don't have the time or energy or even thought process to connect him with cheating. You are too busy trying to reassure him or too puzzled by the sudden accusations.
The second reason for accusing you of cheating if he is cheating himself is that he may suddenly realize that it may be possible for you to cheat yourself and even get away with it. Since you haven't caught on, he may wonder if he has been kept in the dark as well.
The third reason is in some sort of subconscious way to bring up the subject of infidelity. Without admitting that he is cheating, he can accuse you of doing so and see how you react. He may be putting himself in your shoes so to speak to judge how things might go if you ever do find out that he is in fact cheating on you.
Of course, if you really are cheating behind your husband's back, he may be suspicious for good reason that has nothing to do with the possibility of his cheating.
