When is the Best Time to Catch a Cheating Spouse?

Were you aware that time can be a crucial factor in catching a cheating spouse? Many people don’t take the days of the week into consideration when surveillancing their spouse. They instead choose a time that is convenient for them, such as during their lunch break or after work. But there are certain times that you are much more likely to find your spouse in action, if they are indeed having an affair. Let’s take a look at what some of these times are.

Immediately Before or After the Weekend

Thursdays/Fridays and Monday/Tuesdays are popular times for lovers to meet each other in secret. It would look suspicious for a spouse to sneak away over the weekend when they should be spending time with their family. Instead, they will use the days right before and after the weekend to see their lover.

On Birthdays

Birthdays are popular meeting times for cheating spouses and their lovers because it gives them a good excuse to be together. Both birthdays are ample opportunities - the lover’s and the cheater’s. If you are concerned about your spouse being unfaithful, pay close attention to where he or she is on or around the time of their birthday.

On Anniversaries

Usually when couples are having a secret affair, they refer to their “anniversary” as the day they met or started seeing one another. You may not know what this day is, but pay attention for a particular date each month that your spouse always seems to be gone for. Maybe he conveniently golfs on the 17th each month, or perhaps she goes for dinner with her friends every first Tuesday of the month.

Before and After Long Holiday Weekends

Since many national holidays fall on Mondays (i.e., Memorial Day, Labor Day), a cheating spouse will use Thursday and then the following Tuesday to see their lover. Again, they don’t want to be obvious by sneaking away during the long weekend, but they usually won’t wait until the following weekend to see their partner.

In fact, pay close attention to your spouse’s behavior during all of the holidays. For example, cheating spouses tend to see their lovers on the Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday before Thanksgiving. It’s a busy time, and most people are focused on other things. It’s easy for people to lie and say they are at work, when really, they are not.

The same goes for the Christmas season. December 23 is a common time for couples to meet in secret, or early in the day on New Year’s Eve. Pre-Valentine’s Day arrangements are also a common theme, so keep on alert for sneaky behavior on February 12 or 13.

Of course, there are many other things to look for if you feel that your spouse may be cheating. Lying, being secretive, hiding their cell phone and coming home late from work are examples. If you believe that something is going on, contact a private investigator to get the reliable and truthful answers you need.
