Do you suspect your spouse might be cheating on you? Here are several ways you can get the proof you need to know the truth!
First of all, there are many signs that indicate that a spouse may be cheating, the biggest of which is a change in behavior. Some signs to look out for are:
- Staying late at work often
- Change in appearance, usually for the better
- Distancing themselves from you
- Disinterest in sex
- Increasing hostility
In rare occasions, an odd thing happens with cheaters and they actually begin to act more loving towards their spouse. Sometimes it is out of guilt and sometimes it is in an effort to deflect suspicion. Whatever the reason, if you feel your spouse may be cheating, don’t be thrown off the scent if they suddenly start buying you gifts and showering you with compliments. That may just be another sign of guilt, not innocence.
Don’t Act Suspicious
If you truly suspect your spouse of cheating, the first thing you need to do is not act suspicious until you are ready to confront them. If you start acting suspicious, you will alert them to the fact that you are onto them and they will start to get sneakier and hide their activity better and it will be harder to catch them in the act. So, as hard as it will be, do your best to act as if everything is completely normal.
If your spouse is constantly taking calls in another room and saying they are for work or a friend is having problems, but then they are conspicuously whispering, you can try to listen in with a hidden baby monitor. This is easier of course if you have a baby in the house but even if you don’t you can buy one and hide one in the room they usually go to. Just be sure to disguise it well so it isn’t seen and test it to make sure it picks up low sounds.
Another way to listen in to your spouses secret phone conversations is to buy an audio recorder. They even make some that are sound activated. That way you will have actual evidence to show them rather than just your word.
You could also install a hidden camera if you think they are bringing someone to the house for illicit activities while you are away. They make hidden cameras that are quite small and easy to hide and/or look like normal things that would be in a room.Via 24/7 Bebenta Sa'yo
Defrosting A Windshield
Tired of scraping off that pesky ice from your windshield during winter? Simply pour a can of Regular Coke over it and wait. You’ll be amazed!
Have you ever heard that the only way to soothe a jellyfish sting is to pee on it? This is not only gross, but untrue. Instead, pour some Coca-Cola over the sting. The relief will be almost instantaneous.
Coca-Cola contains citric acid, which makes it the perfect glass and window cleaner. No more harsh chemicals, just pour Coke over your windows and wipe them down with a moistened cloth.
Youth Violence Is Actually On The Decline
Hot on the tail of the release of Grand Theft Auto V, violence among young people is a hot-button issue. Rap music, video games, and movies are all becoming increasingly violent, leading many to believe that a generation of unfeeling thugs is inevitable.
The CDC keeps a record of youth violence rates among those aged 10–24. In 2011, over 700,000 cases were reported, which sounds high, but the rate has actually dropped to 7.5 cases per 100,000 kids from 15.2 in 1994. Youth violence has declined far more rapidly than the general decrease in violence seen across all age groups.
Teen Pregnancy Is Down
Along with violence, sex in the media is blamed for creating a generation of immorality and lust. Teens today are sexualized from a young age. Programs like MTV’s 16 and Pregnant alongside high-profile cases of teen pregnancy such as Bristol Palin suggest that it’s a rising problem.
However, the numbers tell a different story. Teen pregnancy rates are at a record low and have been dropping for two decades. Hispanic teens’ rates have dropped by 34 percent since 2007, and the rate is 24 percent for black teenage girls. Sex education programs and access to contraceptives are credited with the success.
Teen Drug Use Is Down
A lot of parents worry about drugs—understandably so. Drugs can cause a lot of damage, and no one wants to hear their teenager has been getting high. Parents also worry about underage drinking, with peer pressure now more of a factor than ever.
But the statistics contradict that stereotype. Drinking and marijuana use is down among teenagers. Surprisingly, the group using more illicit substances than ever is the 50–64 age group. Parents of teenagers worried about substance abuse should probably be looking at their own generation.Via 24/7 Bebenta Sa'yo
