Not going out to lunch with a coworker but an actual date? Did you notice the cell phone or maybe credit card bills with suspicious or unusual entries? If you haven’t, it will be far better to be patient until you have got verification. Your spouse might deny having an affair. Or the bottom line is they are not cheating and your empty accusation is the seed that could bring down the entire relationship
