There are lots of people that get it into their heads that their partner might be cheating. However, rather than waiting to see whether their suspicions are founded or trying to get conclusive evidence, they simply confront their partner right away and start throwing accusations. This is a really bad idea because it can cause untold issues in the relationship if the partner was not actually cheating in the first place.
As you can see from our infographic, there are lots of signs you can look out for if you want to get a better idea of whether your partner is cheating on you. However, this is something you should do before you accused them rather than afterward! While you may have a suspicion that something is going on, you have to remember that there is always a chance that you are wrong unless you see all the signs or have irrefutable evidence. In this article, we will look at some of the reasons you should never accuse your partner just on a whim.
There are lots of reasons why it is a bad idea to accuse your partner of cheating just on a whim. Some of the main ones are:
The Trust Is Gone
One of the key problems you face if you just make accusations without any backup is that it can eliminate all trust in your relationship. You will already be experiencing trust issues otherwise you would not be suspecting and accusing your partner of cheating. However, it will also make your partner both distrustful and resentful of you if they are not cheating but have been accused of it by you. You have to remember that no matter what you think, you could be wrong about them. So, just throwing accusations based on a gut feeling is a bad idea.
It Could Push Them to Cheat
Another thing to keep in mind is that even if your partner is not cheating, your accusations and attitude toward them could push them into it. Some people who are accused think that since their partner already thinks they are cheating, they may as well cheat. Your suspicions may have arisen because your partner was flirting with someone, but this does not mean that they were cheating. If you accuse them of this, it could push them to cross that forbidden line.

They Will Only Deny It
Of course, you also need to bear in mind that, in most cases, partners who are accused of cheating will simply deny it. If you have no proof or evidence, there is little you can do about this. Even if the person is cheating, they can be very convincing about telling you that you are wrong, and you might then decide to let the matter rest. However, if you get evidence together before you accuse them, you can present this to them before they deny it all.
These are some of the reasons to avoid accusing your partner of cheating on a whim.
