LAFAYETTE, LOUISIANA (KLFY) – When it comes to matters of the heart, much like the game of poker, beware deception. Love, It’s not easy to put on a poker face when dealing with a cheating heart.
Campbell’s investigative service owner, Rhonda Campbell says catching a cheater is all about instinct.
“It’s a gut feeling that they have.”
Are you dealing with a cheater?
“Their behavior starts to change.”
If so how would you know?
“They may be staying out late. They may not come home at a regular time, or come home at all.”
Campbell tells KLFY’s Carly Laing that when a spouse starts to lose affection, it might be bad news.
“If a spouse completely changes their routine, they’re not as affectionate. That’s a lot of signs that me as a women would have a feeling that my spouse is doing something.”
Campbell has worked as a private investigator for ten years, she says from experience if you have a gut feeling… listen to it.
“How often when you’re investigating does it turn out that someone is actually cheating? Um like 99.9% of the time.”
Dean Altenhofen, couples therapist at Effective Counseling Center, says if you have noticed changes in behavior, then it’s time to make a decision.
“If a relationship has strayed or cheated, you can always repair that. But the key to it is both people have to be willing to trust, both people have to want to make it happen.”
Unfortunately, in the game of love, some relationships are not built on trust and understanding.
However, that doesn’t mean lasting love isn’t out there.
“Sometimes he’ll walk in with one rose, well that does it.” Hilda Broussard tells News 10.
Don and Hilda Brossard have been happily married for over half a century.
They say every relationship is different, but for them, the key to lasting love is hard work.
“It’s not an easy task, it’s a long task but once you sit back and look at it you say boy time flew by and we enjoyed the whole thing, you know and now here we are in our golden years.”
The game of love is like a rollercoaster, there are highs and lows, but in the end, if you are dealing with a cheater maybe it’s time to try another hand.
