  • Goodness... what a tremendously vague question.

    I am not a suspicious person --cynical and sarcastic, absolutely... but I trust people out of hand until they supply me with a VERY good reason not to.

    My husband spends as much as 9 months a year in different cities and countries. I could spend all day worrying about him screwing around... just as he could easily spend a great deal of time fretting about me screwing around.

    Or, we can look respectfully toward each other and expect better.

    I know it's a very real possibility...lots of people do. Will I spend 12 months out of 12 fretting about it? Only if I want to behave toward my husband with an attitude of 'you're probably going to cheat me' --which I have to tell you: if it were aimed at me, I'd go get the orgasms to go with the disdain and disrespect. If I'm going to get the b.s., I might as well get the fun part.

    Find something valuable TO YOU to do with your time.

  • The fact that your hubby is gonna all the time and not for work but to sit in a bar to drink and get drunk or over at a buddies house getting drunk. That i think the only thing in his life that he is replacing you for is his beer in his hand. Not all men that are running the roads out all the time getting drunk don't cheat on there wives, YES some do but i would say go with what your gut is saying. If i was you i would be putting my foot down on the fact that you are home with the kids and he is sitting his ass some where else with a beer or drink in his hand.Sounds to me you have a problem that needs to be dealt with and it's not cheating but a drunk alcoholic hubby.

  • I would just wait. I would keep my eyes and ears open. If he is cheating. Something will happen and he will slip up and I will find out.

  • I posted this exact same question a few days ago. It is such a horrible feeling! I don't have the problem of him out all the time though if I did I don't know what I would do. I hope things work out for you! Good Luck!

  • Maybe there are other things going on, maybe he is feeling depressed about something. Talk to him.

  • I'd need his side of the story, too. Hard to judge a total stranger we know next to nothing about.

    If you have suspicions, then look for some signs or clues (on the cell or computer). He may just like hanging out at the bar with the guys and drink and play pool for longer than he should (for all we know).

  • I'm going through the same thing, for over a yr hubby rarly comes straight home to me and his 2 kids when he gets out of work, he says he 's visiting friends, ( that I'm not allowed to meet ) because he says if we got into an argument them i would embarrass him calling his friends or looking for him there ( that's bs) the other day i found this recording device in my sons room that recored audio and pic. I placed it in his car ( where he goes every night to make a phone call to a so called friend for 20 min or so and smoke a joint) he said while talking to his friend he had this feeling like someone was listening and looked through the car and found it ( WTF ) and he say's if i ever do that shit again he's leaving me, because of me not trusting him....but why is he so secretive if he not doing nothing wrong????I even tried checking his cell and he erases all history from it daily????
