That old saying “The wife is always the last to know.” still holds true today.
According to infidelity expert Ruth Houston, founder of www.InfidelityAdvice.com , 2/3 of the women whose husbands are cheating on them have no idea their husbands are having an affair -- because they fail to recognize the telltale signs.
Houston, a New York Infidelity expert who is frequently called on by the media to comment on infidelity issues in the news, says, “Being the last to know can put an unsuspecting wife at a major disadvantage.”
3 Disadvantages of Being the Last to Know
Below, Houston expands on the disadvantages of not knowing your husband is having an extramarital affair, by discussing three important reasons why a wife with a cheating husband cannot afford to be the last to know.
1. Being the last to know your husband is having an affair could be fatal to your marriage. The longer his affair goes undetected, the more time your husband has to bond with his mistress, and the harder it will be for him to terminate his relationship with her. By the time you finally find out that he’s cheating on you, his affair may have already reached the point of no return. You will have forfeited a valuable window of opportunity to save your marriage and get it back on track.
2. Being the last to know about your husband’s affair could put you in a serious financial bind. You could find yourself facing a surprise divorce before you have a chance to put certain legal and financial safeguards in place. Cheating husbands often use family funds to finance their affairs, or they may start liquidating assets behind your back if they’re planning a divorce
3. Being the last to know that your husband is having an affair can jeopardize your health. If he’s having unprotected sex with someone else, you’re at risk for HIV/AIDS and a host of other sexually-transmitted diseases. If you know he’s having an extramarital affair, you can protect yourself by abstaining or by practicing safe sex until the matter has been resolved.
“If your husband is cheating on you,” says Houston, “you can’t afford to be the last to know. It could cost you your marriage, your money, or your health. You need to find out before it’s too late. The longer his affair goes on without your knowledge, the more damage it can do.”
How to Avoid Being the Last to Know
Houston says, “Wives can avoid being the last to know by familiarizing themselves with the signs of infidelity -- both the subtle and the obvious signs. If more wives knew how to spot the signs of infidelity, more marriages could be saved. But knowing what to look for is the key.”
That’s one reason Houston wrote Is He Cheating on You? - 829 Telltale Signs ($29, Lifestyle Publications). This popular infidelity book covers practically every known sign of infidelity, including the subtle signs women usually overlook.
