The easiest way to find out is to ask him. If you think he is cheating, he probably is.

The legal way is to hire a lawyer, file a lawsuit with an appropriate and reasonable discovery motion based on valid suspicions of infidelity (assuming that infidelity is grounds for divorce in your state).

The other way is illegal and cannot be discussed here.

No one suggested the obvious of just borrowing his phone and looking at what applications are installed.

Probably because taking someone else's property and violating their privacy is illegal, even if it is a spouse.

Let's not get too high on personal privacy. They're married, which pretty much makes them the same person, even if the concept is out of vogue in 21st-century society. She has a vested interest in his SMS activities. Most people on here are probably worried the OP is their own spouse. Please, someone PM her the information she needs.

Exactly, even if it's your spouse, son or daughter, it's illegal. If she suspects her husband is cheating or doing something else, she needs to step up and actually talk to him about it, rather than illegally sneaking behind his back.

Talking to him...hmmm done that already. I asked a question not advice. Thanks to whoever is willing to help though. It is hard to put your whole heart into your marriage when you dont know whether your worry is legite or not. It may be just an issue I need to resolve. Knowing he wasnt would help and knowing he was would help me. Either way just asking for technical support not marriage advice. Thank.

Unfortunately, this type of question is not a simple matter of tech support. It is asking others to assist you in an illegal activity and is strictly prohibited by forum rules.

What triggered this concern with him cheating on you via sms anyway?

Under what law(s) is it illegal for a person to examine his/her spouse's cell phone?

Not gonna aid and abet in an illegal activity, thanks. Go see a marriage counselor or schedule a joint therapy, lady. Learn some respect for others' privacy.

Having access to incriminating sms, etc., won't solve the problem.

If you don't trust him and he's not answering questions to your satsifaction, then decide what your options are. The trust is gone. Do you really want to stay in a relationship with a person you don't trust? If you found the incriminating SMS, would you suddenly decide NOT to break up with him?

In the end, it doesn't matter if the SMS exist or not. It only matters what you are willing to do about it.

This thread has more than run its course. This forum is not an appropriate venue to discuss the topic at hand. /Thread
