If you share a computer with your spouse that is legally accessible to you both, you may check their browser history and see what they have been up to lately. This history can reveal the sites and pages they frequently or recently visited. If you find any dating sites or social media pages that your spouse has been keeping as a secret should definitely worry you. When your spouse keeps deleting their browsing history regularly, it is a sure sign that there is something they don’t want you to know.

It is a good exercise to keep an eye on your spouse’s activities. Some of these activities may include trips and unanswered ATM and credit card transactions. It is advised to be greatly cautious about trips that take longer than normal. This may include small trips to the local store that are not taking a few hours.
