Warning signs of infidelity can take many forms but if you know which signs to look for, it can make this difficult investigative journey a bit easier and definitely less expensive than hiring a private investigator. Infidelity can take many forms but usually begins as emotional infidelity and then progresses to sexual infidelity. According to an infidelity poll conducted by WomanSavers.com of over 143,806 women, 10% (15,693) had never caught their partner cheating, 35% (50,403) suspected their partner but never caught him and 54% (77,710) caught their partner cheating red handed.

A person’s gut instinct is usually right, but if you notice any of the below top 20 warning signs of infidelity, the likelihood of your partner cheating becomes even more so. If you discover infidelity, be prepared with a master plan of action. Surviving infidelity is just as difficult as the discovery so make sure that you have a master plan of action as to how you will cope if infidelity is discovered.

Watch for the following top 20 infidelity signs:
