Signs of Adultery
It is estimated that up to 15% of married women and 25% of married men in the United States have engaged in some sort of extramarital affair. Individuals may be able to determine whether their spouse is one these individuals.
Typically, individuals who are having extramarital affairs will:
- Often stay out late
- Be unable to fully explain where they have been
- Smell of perfume or cologne that is not their own
- Have unexplained expenses
- Seem less engaged in the relationship
While these signs may not necessarily mean that a spouse is adulterous, they are reasons for suspicion in some cases.
An adulterous spouse may have to give up more of his or her share of the couple’s assets in a divorce settlement. If you wish to divorce your adulterous spouse, contact the Fort Lauderdale divorce attorneys of Eric N.
