Currently, better than fifty percent of all marriages in the U.S. will end by divorce. Marriages are tossed out like so much rubbish, and often, the cause is trivial. Judges must have strong necks from all the head shaking they do in the face of downright silly arguments for divorce. There is, however, one reason no one ever laughs at”unfaithfulness. It is the one thing that will wreak atomic devastation on a marriage. Cheating instantly and permanently obliterates all trust. Though some couples opt to stick it out and stay married, their marriage forever wounded nevertheless. It is just never the same.
Most often, however, infidelity means the end of the marriage. Painful as a broken marriage is, the pain goes far deeper when the couple has children. Thus, even the slightest inkling of unfaithfulness can be enough to drive a couple apart, sometimes irreparably.
Marriages have ended due to suspicion alone. A wife notices an unknown number on her husbandâ€™s cell phone, and suspicion is aroused. Taken together with his extra hours at work and a few unexplained hours out, that â€śsuspicious” cell phone number cracks open the floodgates of dread and bitter anger. Suddenly her picture of him has changed. Before this situation spins out of control, she would be wise to take a breath and consider a judicious alternative.
The Internet contains many websites devoted to investigation, and using of them, a spouse may simply do a reverse cell phone search on the mystery phone number and discover whose number it is, as well as other interesting information on the owner of the cell phone. It could well be that her spouse has no idea who this caller is; it would then make sense to learn that he has never even answered calls from this number. Not only that, but mystery phone number charges are another indicator.
So perhaps the investigating spouse learns there was no reason to suspect infidelity. Then again, maybe she is absolutely correct to suspect him, and this is confirmed when she learns that the caller is a woman from his office and she always calls just before he determines he must return to the office to get some extra â€śwork” done. In either case, she has checked her facts and can now take an informed course of action (or non-action) rather than reacting on the stormy emotions that always accompany suspicion.
