A woman’s intuition: over three quarters of women can tell when their husband is cheating on them

Image result for woman's intuition

• 79% of women and 49% of men correctly suspected their partner of cheating
• Women were better at catching their partner, and they were twice as likely to call out them for cheating, too
• 5% of women admitted to hiring a private investigator to track their husband, but just 2% of men did the same
• 85% of women and 82% of men denied their affair when they were confronted by their partner
• The research comes from IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people, who spoke to the husbands and wives that caught their partner cheating

If you’ve got a niggling doubt that your partner might be unfaithful, you’re probably right. That’s according to IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people and the leading authority on infidelity.

They spoke to the husbands and wives who caught their significant other cheating, finding that a rather alarmingly high number of women (79%) had previously suspected their partner of cheating before they eventually caught them.

The number of men who suspected their wife of cheating, however, was significantly less (49%), leaving the majority totally oblivious to their wife’s indiscretions.

Women were also twice as likely to call out their husband when they suspected them of cheating, doing so an average of four times compared to just twice for men.

And to prove that hell really hath no fury like a woman scorned, women were also more than twice as likely to hire a detective or private investigator to track their husband when they suspected him of cheating, with 5% of women admitting to doing so; a mere 2% of men did the same.

Where men and women had some sort of parity was in deniability, with 85% of women and 82% of men denying their affair whenever they were confronted by their significant other.

Spokesperson for IllicitEncounters.com, Christian Grant, adds:

“Maybe it’s a woman’s intuition, or maybe blokes are doing a terrible job of covering their tracks, but it’s safe to say that if you have a suspicion that your partner is cheating, however slight, it’s worth trusting your gut on this one… if you’re a woman, anyway.

“Men on the other hand aren’t getting any help from their gut whatsoever. They’re either completely oblivious that their wife is cheating on them, or they’re more fearful of incorrectly accusing their wife when she may be totally innocent.

Kimberley – 32 – Hampshire

“I remember first being concerned when my husband became less and less interested in sex for no apparent reason. It didn’t happen instantly, like he was eager to have sex one day but couldn’t care less the next, but it was definitely noticeable.

“But I gave him the benefit of the doubt – he’s my husband, and I know I’d feel uncomfortable if someone had accused me of cheating, so I tried to forget about it.

“Then gradually, I started to get other hints that made it really difficult not to be cynical. He started spending more and more time at work (for no apparent reason, he hadn’t received a promotion or anything like that) as well as with ‘friends’.

“It got to the point where I’d started to feel so neglected in favour of, as it turns out, this other woman he was seeing, that I decided to question him about it. To my dismay, he denied everything, and when I questioned him a second time, he denied it again, but more aggressively this time. He’d wilted by the third time I’d called him out and that was that.”
Cheryl – 42 – Coventry

“My husband and I were always perfectly happy… at least so I thought! We both work decent jobs, we spent time together, our kids are perfectly happy and so on.

“I wouldn’t have had much reason to suspect he was cheating on me – like I said, I thought all was well – and in fact the way I found out was all rather cliché.

“We live in a small town near Coventry, so it’s not uncommon to bump into someone you know, and that’s what happened. A family friend noticed my husband out with another woman.

“Obviously I was shocked when she told me, but my first thoughts were that it could have been a colleague, client, a friend I simply don’t know about etc.

“With that said, I couldn’t help but be a little suspicious, so I went through his internet history (it seemed like an obvious place to start) and it confirmed my suspicions.

“It took me some time to stomach and process everything, but I called him out on it a few days later, providing his search history as proof that I knew. We had a pretty open and honest chat about everything – I took it surprisingly well – and we’ve started seeking marriage counselling as a result.”

Yes! Yes! Yes! 68% of women admit faking orgasms – and almost a third of men, too – according to new study

* Men or women who are cheating are much less likely to fake it when they are with their illicit lover;
* Main reason both sexes fake it is to spare their long-term partner’s feelings because sex was taking too long;
* Women are eight times more likely to fake an orgasm with a long-term partner than with a new love;
* Half of women (54%) and 36% of men say there is nothing wrong in faking it;
* Four out of ten women (42%) said they found it easy to fool a lover into thinking they have climaxed;
* Results are from a new survey of 1,000 people by IllicitEncounters.com – Britain’s leading dating website for married people
Almost seven out of ten women have faked an orgasm – and nearly a third of men, too, according to new study.
It found that 68% of women and 28% of men have pretended to climax with a partner.
Half the women surveyed (54%) said they had faked it because the sex was taking too long and they didn’t want to hurt their partner’s feelings.
Other reasons women gave for pretending were they found sex boring (37%), not in the mood (36%),  too tired (35%),  they had drunk too much alcohol (28%), their partner was new and could not satisfy them (16%), they struggle to climax through intercourse (15%).
Sparing a partner’s feeling was the main reason men fake it – chosen by 22% of those questioned, followed by too much alcohol (20%).
One in ten men said they had faked an orgasm during a one-night stand after realising they had made a mistake.
The results come from a new poll of 1,000 people by IllicitEncounters.com, Britain’s leading dating website for married people.
It found that women were eight times more likely to fake an orgasm with their husband or long-term partner than with a new lover or someone with whom they were cheating.
Men were three times more likely to pretend with their wife or long-term partner than with someone they had just started dating or having an affair with.
Half the women questioned (54%) said they saw nothing wrong in faking a climax because to reveal the truth would cause more harm.
Fewer men (36%) saw nothing wrong in faking it.
Four out of ten women (42%) said that it was ‘easy’ to fool men into thinking they have climaxed.
Only 12% of men said they would find faking it ‘easy’.
Actress Megan Ryan is probably responsible for the most famous faked female orgasm in movies in the scene in Where Harry Met Sally where she
explained how easily women can fool men by faking an orgasm while eating in a busy diner.
IllicitEncounters.com spokesman Christian Grant said: “It is very clear from these findings that there are a lot of women having rubbish sex with their husbands and long-term boyfriends and faking it to spare their feelings.
“It is easier to do that than confront the deeper problems in a relationship.
“Perhaps what is more surprising is how many men are faking it, too – largely for the same reasons as women. They put on an act because their marriage or long-term relationship is stale  and they are going through the motions when it comes to sex.
“All IllicitEncounters.com research shows that couples enjoy their best sex right at the start of a relationship when things are still fresh and you are both excited to be trying something new.”
IllicitEncounters.com has more than one million members in the UK.
Male members are mostly white collar professionals – earning an average of £54,000 a year.
Women tend to be younger than male members and they date more frequently – averaging three dates a month to men’s two.
