Husband doesn't answer his phone and can not be located for several hours??

I have never been a nosey, snooping, jealous wife. I like my privacy therefore, I respect others. When my husband started not answering his phone and wouldn't be reachable for hours I started questoning. We have been married for 15 years and he always answered my calls and if not would call right back. Until about 6 mos ago. Now he doesn't answer 95% of the time and doesn't call back for hours. All our cell phones can be located with att's family map locator so, when he wouldn't answer I would check his location (i had never done this before). I learned he wasn't always honest about where he was. When confronted he would say the locator was wrong. Then he started turning his phone off and would not be locatable at all. He always has an excuse ...battery was dead, phone was in the truck , my ringer was turned down or i didn't see the txt... Can anyone share some words of wisdonm or advice?

  • Hmm..I would be worried, but that may just be my jealous personality. If he just started changing his attitude and things, then it seems something is up.

  • Yah, I would be worried, too. Maybe you can look at the cell bill on line & see calls he has made or that has come in & go from there. I hope your wrong, but it does seem fishy

  • I would definitely follow your instincts on this one... My ex turned out to be a very unfaithful man and he would do the same thing... :S

  • i'd sit down with him and have a serious conversation. if you feel something is wrong it probably is. 99% of the time you should trust your instincts.

  • I think you are right to be concerned. Sounds a bit fishy to me. Insist he be "reachable" or you will reach out and get an attorney! Once you have his attention, tell him you will forgo the atty. if he will agree to counseling. This may be a mid-life crisis affair- but something is definately not right here. (always trust that little voice!) Good luck

  • sounds like something is going on, especially since he now turns off his phone so you cant locate him. If you have enough money hire a private investigator.

  • something is going on. Has anything at home changed? Where (when you could) did you locate him at?

  • I'd hire a private investigator
