You may be in a perfect relationship or marriage, but there is no such thing as a perfect human being. We can all make mistakes, and having an affair is among the mistakes we can commit.
If you are wondering whether your wife committed infidelity, take a look at the signs she cheated on you last night. They should provide information that can help you reveal if your wife was unfaithful to you.
1. Coming Back from Work Late
It is the oldest excuse for cheating in the books, but one that often works best. Staying at work until late might not be that unusual for your wife.

However, if you feel like that is happening more often than it should recently, it may be a reason to worry.
Also, pay attention if they stayed up even longer than usual as that may be an alarm, too.
2. Not Coming Back at All
You can’t forbid your wife (or girlfriend) to go out, and last night was supposed to be a special occasion. Her best friend might have been celebrating a birthday, or her company organized a Christmas party earlier.
It was expected for her to return late, but the problem is she hasn’t returned at all. When you got up to drink your coffee in the morning, you noticed her coming in through the door.

That is a legit moment to ask her where she was all night, but make sure to allow her to explain. If the explanation doesn’t seem truthful, it may be because an affair is behind it.
3. You Had an Argument
You had a heated argument last night, and your wife decided to storm out of the house. The chances are you both exaggerated, and now you are mad at each other.
However, if you had a fight and your wife only to return in the morning, you should ask for an explanation. She might tell you she slept with a friend, but are you sure she is telling the truth?
Since you had a fight, you should be wise and try to apologize first. If you don’t think you should apologize, try to communicate normally, and then ask about her whereabouts when the moment is right.
4. She Wasn’t Responding to Your Calls
Your wife has a habit of checking up on her phone every 15 minutes or so. Moreover, she usually answers within an hour, but that wasn’t the case last night.
She will probably offer an excuse for not answering. However, if you know that is something that rarely happens, and you think she doesn’t have a valid reason for not replying, perhaps you should be honest and say you are afraid she committed an affair.
5. She Is Confused About the Details
If you fell asleep when she came back from the club, or you called her in the morning, ask about the details of last night. She should feel comfortable talking about what happened.
However, if you notice that she gets confused about the details, or she avoids looking you in the eyes, those may be signs of lying.
There is no need for her to get nervous if she didn’t do anything wrong. If something seems off, that may be a reason to start worrying.

6. She Acts Weird
When we say that she acts weird, it can be manifested in different ways. You may pay attention to the following:
- She is avoiding eye contact. It may go so far that she is placing objects, such as mugs or vases, between you.
- She is unusually silent. Although she is usually not cheap on details, she only spoke a sentence or two about last night’s events.
- She is unusually loud. Some women may try to cover up they are lying or hiding something by yapping. If she doesn’t want to stop talking, but she fails even to mention last night, that is a reason to start worrying.
7. No Friend Can Confirm Her Whereabouts
If your girlfriend or wife was out all night, the chances are she was with at least one of her friends. If something seems off about her behavior, you may want to get a confirmation that she was with her friends.
If you feel like you have to make the call, try to be polite. Design a strategy to discover whether they were together without directly accusing your wife of lying.
It would be great if you already have established communication with that friend. That would not make calling or messaging them weird or surprising.
A smart approach is in your interest because it shouldn’t seem like you are checking up on your wife.
8. You Got a Gift
If it is not your birthday or anniversary, but your wife still decided to get you a gift, maybe you should consider that a red flag.
You should worry even more if the present is unusually large or expensive.
It is vital to be careful because your spouse may have simply prepared a surprise for you.
You don’t want to be a husband that ruined a beautiful gift, so try to think if there are any other signs she cheated on you last night.
If you find a combination of two or more signs, start by asking for a reason why she is giving you a gift. In case the explanation doesn’t seem valid, it may be that she is feeling guilty for cheating, and that is why you received a gift.

9. She Is Willing to Do Whatever You Want in Bed
Once again, the cause behind her willingness is guilt. She knows that she has done a bad thing, and now she is trying to make it up for you.
Here, things may vary from one couple to another.
If your wife is conservative in bed, but she seems far more open today, she may be feeling guilty about last night.
On the other hand, if you already have a spicy love life, maybe it is better to look for other signs from our list.
Signs Are Not Evidence
The crucial thing to mention is that all these signs are merely pointers, and they don’t prove an affair. If you notice multiple signs she cheated on you last night, you should find the courage to confront her.
However, do your best to be polite and have a friendly conversation. Tell her you are worried about where she was, and you would appreciate any form of confirmation. Ask her to be honest in the interest of your future relationship.
A high level of honesty and communication is essential if you want to keep your marriage going. If she admits infidelity, it may take a lot of effort, but you can push through it if you truly want to stay together.
