Can a polygraph examination help insure fidelity in a relationship? Absolutely not! What a polygraph examination can do is establish the truth of what is, or is not, really happening in a relationship. Based on that information, how the relationship proceeds is up to you.

How to tell if your spouse is cheating?
- Your relationship is too important to just go with your “gut” feeling. But that is a good place to start. The human subconscious picks up small ‘tells’ when something is not quite right. If your ‘feeling’ is that something is off, you should try to learn more.
- Is there a change in behaviors on your spouse’s part?
- When you attempt to discuss your suspicions, your spouse shuts you down.
- Your spouse has become distant
- He/she is working longer hours
- Your sex life has died off.
- Check your finances. If there are a large number of unexplained charges, this may be a sign.
Don’t make accusations you can’t back-up!
Don’t confuse the Warning Signs with Proof.
- Ask your spouse to talk about it. Have a frank, open discussion that allows them to be honest with you.
- Ask your spouse to submit to a lie detector test. If they refuse, this is a bad sign. People with nothing to hide are rarely afraid to have it proven. In fact, just the opposite, they prefer to have themselves vindicated.
