Guarding one’s marriage is one of the most difficult things of all. Infidelity arises when there are some hints of temptation. These hints transform into flirtations, flirtations turn into attractions and attractions ultimately transform into an affair, which is a disaster for a marital relationship. A wife turned into an unfaithful wife undergoes various changes.
Here are some signs of unfaithful wife:
1. Eating and sleeping pattern
The eating and sleeping pattern of your wife may alter. She might start having a proper diet or can get very conscious about her fitness. Sleeping patterns, on the other hand, may change drastically. How they change depends on the circumstances. If she’s using the phone constantly, then she’ll probably have less sleep.
2. Trying different styles of clothes
The unfaithfulness of your wife can also be identified by the way she tries different styles of clothes. All of a sudden she might wear trendy clothes to look attractive.
You can notice her deviating from a laid-back homemaker to a very passionate and energetic one, and this happens out of the blue.
3. Becoming extraordinarily irresponsible and aggressive
The unfaithful wife loses her interest in household chores. She often argues about being asked to work a lot. You would probably notice her going for a morning jog, leaving important chores behind. You’d notice aggressiveness in her attitude, which would ultimately turn into daily fights.
4. Working longer or different hours
If she’s an office person, you will notice her working for longer and on different hours that seem odd for working. An unfaithful wife usually comes up with excuses for having important meetings in the office. Fabricating gets common, and she’d mostly not ask you to pick her from office and would get home on her own at an odd hour.
5. Comparing you with one of her colleagues
She would start comparing you with others, probably one of her colleagues. This would give an indication that she admires someone in her office.
She’d name someone saying his hairstyle or personality as a whole is very enticing.
6. Becoming secretive and setting a new password for the phone
You’d notice her talking less and hiding important matters. It’s a crystal clear indication that she has turned into an unfaithful wife, as she would get aggressive about you touching her phone. She’d set a new password so that everything is kept in secret. Arguing about increased phone bills would get common.
These are all the indicators of telling that your spouse is unfaithful. This doesn’t mean that you have to always spy on her. As mentioned earlier, you’d have that gut feeling of being cheated on. Things would start getting weird. After all these indicators shown by your spouse, you can be sure of her unfaithfulness.
What the Bible has to say
Bible has also addressed this issue and has put forward some of the signs that indicate an unfaithful wife.
Following are some of the indicators and consequences of an unfaithful wife Bible talks about.
This is how an unfaithful wife acts: she commits adultery, takes a bath, and says, “But I haven’t done anything wrong!”( Proverbs 30:20-30 GNTA)
There are 4 things that the earth itself cannot tolerate; a slave who becomes a king, a fool who has all he wants to eat, a hateful woman who gets married, and a servant woman who takes the place of her mistress. (Proverbs 30:20-30 GNTA)
For the lips of the adulterous woman drip honey, and her speech is smoother than oil; but in the end, she is bitter as gall, sharp as a double-edged sword. ( Proverbs 5:3-22)
She gives no thought to the way of life; her paths wander aimlessly, but she doesn’t know it. ( Proverbs 5:3-22)
