Posted Jul 28 2008 8:14pm
Like many unsuspecting wives with cheating husbands, Christie Brinkley was the last to know that Peter Cook was having an affair. She made the following statements during the Brinkley-Cook divorce trial:
"I felt really stupid. Why didn't I know? Why wasn't I aware of this?”
“ . . . all the while he was carrying on like this behind my back.”
klrhzwmHer statements are a painful reminder that the age-old saying, “The wife is always the last to know” still holds true today.
At least 2/3 of the women whose husbands are cheating on them have no idea their husbands are having an affair -- because they fail to recognize the telltale signs.
What You Stand to Lose by Being the Last to Know
If your husband is cheating on you, being the last to know could cost you your marriage, your money and your health.
A closer look at what you stand to lose will show you why you can’t afford to be the last to know.
Being the last to know your husband is having an affair could be fatal to your marriage.The longer his affair goes undetected, the more time your husband has to bond with his mistress, and the harder it will be for him to end his relationship with her. By the time you finally find out he’s cheating on you, his affair may have already reached the point of no return. You will have forfeited a valuable window of opportunity to save your marriage and get it back on track.
Being the last to know about your husband’s affair could put you in a serious financial bind. Cheating husbands often use family funds to finance their affairs. A cheating husband planning to leave his wife may start liquidating assets behind her back if they’re planning a divorce. You could find yourself facing a surprise divorce before you have a chance to put certain legal and financial safeguards in place.
Being the last to know that your husband is having an affair can jeopardize your health. If your husband is having unprotected sex with someone else, you’re at risk for HIV/AIDS and a host of other sexually-transmitted diseases. If you know he’s having an extramarital affair, you can protect yourself by abstaining or by practicing safe sex until the matter has been resolved.
Finding Out Too Late Can Have Serious Consequences
The longer an affair goes undetected, the more damage it can do. However, spotting the signs of infidelity early enough will give you a chance to minimize a lot of the damage infidelity can cause. Finding out too late can leave you open to financial ruin, jeopardize your health, and cost you a chance to salvage your marriage before your husband’s affair reaches the point of no return. The future of your marriage may depend on your ability to spot the signs of infidelity in time.
How To Avoid Being the Last to Know

No matter how carefully a cheater tries to cover his tracks, he willALWAYSleave signs behind. Since the most of the signs are subtle and easy to overlook, knowing what to look for is the key. If more wives knew how to spot the signs of infidelity, more marriages could be saved.
