Some married people go the extra mile in finding out what their partners are doing in their absence. They read their emails, check their phone text messages and even go to the extent of installing software that will help them to monitor the calls of their partners as well as their movements in their mobile devices, wrist watches and cars. There are a number of reasons that may cause a man or woman to snoop around the activities of his or her partners. Here are some red flags that may cause snooping.

Claiming the right to privacy

Everybody has a right to a private life. However, this right to a private life may lose its force when one gets married. This is because husband and wife are expected to share secrets and know everything about themselves. There should be nothing hidden about each other. So, when a spouse who is spouse to keep no secret from his or her partner starts emphasizing his or her right to private life, it will give rise to suspense which can result in snooping. A spouse may not talk about right to privacy but can manifest that through his or her action. For example, if you refuse to disclose the password to your computer, cell phone records, social networks and other things from your partner, then you are claiming the right to privacy. When you behave in such a manner, there is every tendency for your partner to think about what you are trying to hide from him or her. The next thing is for him or her to snoop around.

Separation for sometime

It is a well known fact that separation can make somebody to begin an affair with another person. Virtually, every married person knows about this fact. So, if you are separated from your husband for sometimes, there is the tendency for your partner to try to find out how you are living your life in his or her absence. 

Unexplained absences from home

Imagine a situation when your partner comes home and you are not around when you are supposed to be around. Yet, you are not able to explain to him or her where went or try you hide from him or her where you went. Such unexplained absence can make one to become suspicious of one's partner and this can result in snooping. 

These situations may not necessary mean that a spouse is having an affair. But they strongly indicate that the person is doing something that he or she will not want his or her husband to find out. So, if you don't want your husband or wife to snoop around you, then don't give him a chance for that.
