The cell gets more protection than your children or retirement assets. If you even look at the phone, your husband deftly removes it from view and places it in his pocket, desk drawer, or locks it in the console of his car. Or, discovering that odd ringing sound is a poorly hidden extra cell phone you didn’t know she had. Don’t recognize the number? You aren’t supposed to.
Way Too Much Attention
Attention is great for lots of reasons. But, if it borders on over-kill, your spouse might be feeling guilty about something. Perhaps they haven’t crossed that line, but they could be giving it serious consideration. You’ll know when they cross the line: the attention will likely turn into fault-finding or criticism aimed at you because they will have another warm, intimate body to compare you to.
