Six Signs Your Spouse Is Cheating on You on Facebook

  1. FB chats late into the night: It can be disconcerting to see your other half's face and fingers glued to his/her smartphone screen while you're trying to catch 40 winks. There's a chance that it may be work-related but if it's happening very often, you should consider asking him/her about the late night messaging, and gauge his/her reaction.
  2. Puts away phone when you're around: Why would spouses abruptly stop their Facebook activity and put their phone down every time their partner walks into the room? If your spouse seems nervous about you peeking into his/her phone, there could be more than meets the eye.
  3. Keeps uploading photos: Watch out for frequent photo uploads where it's just him/her and you're missing! It could be a means of appearing desirable to someone your partner is courting on Facebook.
  4. Multiple FB accounts: Why would your spouse have multiple Facebook accounts unless he/she is part of some secret cult or illegal gang? Even then, resistance groups or sellers of illegal products/ operate in the deep web and dark side of the internet. Your partner could be using his/her other account exclusively to send NSFW messages to someone.
  5. Hidden friend list: If you're unable to see who your spouse's friends are on Facebook and he/she spends a lot of time interacting with these unknown entities, it should turn on your infidelity radar.
  6. World revolves around Facebook: Has your spouse started withdrawing from you and spending an excessive amount of time on Facebook? Have there been instances where your partner has been away without informing you or made excuses for coming late from work or seeming busy all the time? It may be indicative of his/her Facebook relationship blossoming into romance or a sex fling.

Consider a case where your spouse seems unnaturally active on another woman's Facebook profile. Perhaps there are also a couple of inside jokes by colleagues on your husband's profile that seem to suspiciously revolve around his (apparent) attraction towards that woman. You can get more information on her online and track her down too. Bing is preferable to Google as it provides personal details such as phone numbers and addresses.

While it is illegal to plant a GPS tracking device inside your spouse's car, there is no problem if the device is placed outside the car so long as it doesn't interfere with the car's performance.

A honeytrap is a rather traditional method to nab a cheating spouse, but it must be planned thoughtfully to figure out if your husband is indulging in sexual activities outside your marriage or just happy to flirt innocently and insincerely with a beautiful woman.

You can hire a private investigator to get a good idea about your spouse's whereabouts and accumulate enough proof (if any) prior to confronting him/her. Keep in mind that investigators can put surveillance on your spouse and check the phone records to see if he/she is calling someone else. But they cannot break the law in the process and infringe on basic human rights.
