Nobody wants to think that their partner is cheating on them. Single men and women, married couples, engaged couples, and those attempting to develop a long-lasting relationship like to think that their partner is true to them and to them only.

Married couples have made promises to each other that everyone expects them to keep. It doesn't matter whether a couple has been married less than a year or for decades, cheating may occur in any relationship. Sometimes the cheating is obvious, but more often than not it begins in a very subtle manner. Some spouses go to great lengths to hide their secret from their partner, and in many situations, it may take quite a while for the partner to figure it out, if he or she ever does.

Honesty and truth are such basic parts of any long term relationship that it is often difficult for a spouse to realize that someone has broken that trust. Most men and women who know their spouse well are often aware of subtle changes in personality or behavior that may occur, as well as feeling nagging doubts or suspicions. However, knowing the signs and applying them to your partner is often not so easy.

Sometimes, a partner who may be exhibiting signs of cheating turns out to have a perfectly reasonable, if secretive, explanation for their behavior. That is why complete honesty is a necessary ingredient to a successful marriage. It leaves no room for doubt, suspicion, or mistrust. It is when people attempt to hide their feelings or their actions that the difficulties begin. Cheating partners often think their spouse is clueless about their activities. However, even the most careful cheater will leave subtle signs that may serve to alert a spouse.

One question that many friends ask another married friend is, "If you knew that the husband or wife of a friend was cheating, would you tell that person?" It's a question that many of us ask ourselves. Do we want to know? Would we want to know?

Another issue that is raised among married couples is the definition of cheating. Is cheating merely physical contact, or can it be emotional engagement between two people? Believe it or not, many women and men claim that if their husband or wife were having an affair, they wouldn't want to know.

Understanding cheating, lying, and deceit, as well as infidelity, will help spouses to recognize their signs and symptoms in their own relationship. Some couples can overcome such incidents, while it can be devastating to others. Individual morals, beliefs and expectations have a great deal to do with how any partner reacts to such behavior from a spouse. In some cases, a spouse may be willing to forgive, if not to forget, while for others, it is the straw that breaks the camel's back.

Just as that decision depends on the individual, so does the definition of cheating. Explaining the differences between various aspects of cheating as well as learning to identify many of the signs of a cheating spouse are explained in this book. In some cases, investigation on the part of the spouse or by a professional is often necessary to unveil the truth about a partner. Understanding how to follow paper trails and access computer information to detect lies and deceit is an unfortunate, if necessary, skill that many spouses may need in order to unravel a trail of lies. Many people deal with discoveries of infidelity in different ways. However, in every situation, friends and family members may help to alleviate the pain, disbelief, and betrayal that a spouse feels after learning that their partner has cheated on them.
