With infidelity at epidemic proportions, this information may come in handy one day. Some of these little-known facts may even surprise people who consider themselves knowledgeable about infidelity, cheating spouses and extramarital affairs. Below are 14 things about signs of infidelity you probably didn’t know.

1. Telltale signs of infidelity begin to appear even while the infidelity is still in the planning stage. If you spot the early warning signs, you may be able to stop the affair before it starts.

2. Most cheaters display signs of infidelity they’re not even aware of, and thus would never think to cover up.

3. Many unsuspecting victims of infidelity either miss, or misinterpret the many subtle signs of infidelity that are staring in the face. Knowing what to look for is the key.
