Is My Husband Cheating on Me?
I Read the Signs to Find Out

Pin It

Think your husband is cheating? Read how I learned to read the signs to find out if my husband was cheating. I’ve been married for almost 13 years, but I’m not a relationship guru, nor I usually give marriage advice, so take my advice with grain of salt.

I was visiting a luxury spa a while ago, and they had a psychic medium to teach a session about intuition. I’m pretty open to new things but when it comes to fortune tellers and psychics, I don’t have much trust after one psychic medium told me I was going to divorce my husband when I was 8 months pregnant. I was also supposed to have twins this year, and looks like that’s not gonna happen. So I was a little skeptic in this session, but when she told us to do a little practice on intuition on our way home, I decided to do it. She instructed us to send a question out to the universe, and by the time we got home, we would have the answer. Simple enough.

I was trying to think of a good question. Should it be something big? Or just a small thing like “will tonight’s SNL be worth watching”? Nothing big really came to my mind, but I thought the universe shouldn’t be bothered with non-meaningful questions.

Then one question popped into my mind “has my husband ever cheated on me”. Come on, who wouldn’t want to know if your husband was cheating on you? Game on, and my question was sent to the universe.

I was sort of nervous. What if the answer was “yes” – what was I going to tell my husband when I got home? “Dude, I asked the universe if you had cheated on me, and it answered yes, let’s have a talk”. And seriously, my husband would think I was nuts if I said “honey, I saw a big 18-wheeler with text “yes” on the side and it was a sign that you have cheated on me”.

Would this (silly) intuitive exercise impact our relationship? Would I believe my husband or the “sign”? It was from the friggin’ universe after all, much bigger than my husband. The Universe might be the same thing as God, so I better believe what it says, right?

I don’t know. I was just looking for an answer and decided I would deal with the consequences later.

The medium had told us that the answer could come from anywhere. It might be a song you hear from radio, a newspaper headline, a conversation you overhear, text in a billboard. But you would see it, in form of hints or/and loud and clear. The entire drive home I was skipping radio channels and the songs about eternal love and how you are the only one for me would pop up, but I still didn’t get a definite “yes” or “no”. I was getting little impatient and I was getting closer to home, and was worried what if I didn’t get my answer by the time I got home. I might have to engage my husband in a thrilling discussion because now I was all pumped up about the topic and my tongue was sharpened to verbally attack. It wasn’t going to be pretty. My heart was racing because I thought I had to face my husband and ask if he is cheating on me, and I was fearing all of the discussion to follow.

I was thinking can’t I just see or hear simple “yes” or “no”. Dear Universe, just give me an answer, no more of these love songs and leading hints, I NEED to know before going home.
I need to know now, yes or no.
Less than 10 seconds later I drove by a big sign that said North-something.
All I could see was the first two letters, N-O.

Now, I don’t know if this was the universe telling me anything, but all I have to say, I was pretty darn happy with the answer, and decided just to leave it as it is.

  1. I just found your blog and this is the first post I read..haha I was nervous for you and questions my own husband in my mind just now.. The universe told me no..LOL SO I am like the universe right now. This post was very interesting! THanks for sharing. Can not wait to read more of your posts.

  2. Lets not forget that the same holds true for cheating women. It needs 2 to tango.

    Richard,
    I find your comment very ironic – I didn’t trust my future on “stars”. And I never said I didn’t trust my husband, I trust him 100%. And what the heck does world ending to do with this anyways?

    I love that my post made you think, because people do things like “reading signs” in their every day lives all the time. You read my blog post and immediately thought I was an idiot and you are smarter than me. You didn’t take time to get to know me, or even deeply think about the post, but you felt smarter than me. A person that you obviously don’t know. That simply isn’t any different than me reading a freaking traffic sign and thinking if the sign says “NORTH”, my husband has never cheated on me. I think both are equally ridiculous – but it proves my point that we can go about with our lives and make ourselves believe anything we want if we “read the signs”, whatever they might be. You chose to see me as an idiot, because you wanted to feel better about yourself.

    I’m glad that I was able to make you think and feel better about yourself :)

    Have a great day!

  4. To base your future on one decision from the STARS are you kidding me! if you don’t trust your spouse you shouldn’t have married them and worse off have kids and have them involved in this idiotic behavior. any of you people related to that moron that predicted thye end of the world? looks that way!

  5. Alex- I agree with you 100%! And Sugar IS right, and don’t you think exactly that happened in my post too? I simply made up that something meant something.

  6. Sugar Jones is on the ball. No one can tell you your destiny since you write its course daily with what you do or don’t do. If you want to know if your husband is cheating on you ask him and communicate with each other truthfully. Looking for signs is a sure way to lead a distracted existence.

  7. LOL… that’s what psychics bank on… we see what we want to see. ;)

  8. While I very much believe in intuition, for some reason looking for signs around us reminds me of John Nash in A Beautiful Mind, just tying together articles and letters into some crazy random pattern. Not that it’s not fun to do, and it has happened to me, finding an “answer” in something in my surroundings. It might just be that when we’re looking for something, that we notice a lot more that we normally would (I hope that makes sense, it sounds kind of garbled, rereading it).

  9. I think it’s VERY possible that the universe was telling you something. I don’t believe in psychics, but I do have Faith & believe in a higher power. And I am 100% certain that his signs are everywhere. :) Glad you got the answer you were wanting!

  10. LOVE this.. and yes i completely believe in psychics and intuition and that if we’re open to it- we’ll get signs…:)

  11. Katja Presnal :

    Yes!! You were on the trip with me! And I was embarrassed to tell anyone I actually did my “homework” and what I asked! Did you do it?

  12. Wasn’t I with you on this trip?? I remember that the psychic was great and it was great to go back and read this post and remember some things she had said that have long since been forgotten. Great post, as always.
