What do I do if my spouse won't admit to having an affair?

It's not a surprise if you confront your partner and they deny ever having an affair or try to turn it on you or make it look like you're paranoid or suspicious no matter what you present. Because to admit to it is to change, to give up their freedom, and to not be able to do what their doing. To have to stop what they're doing when they may not be ready to. Their reaction that they know the truth will devastate you and they're trying to protect you. So the normal reaction of a confronted spouse is to deny the affair for a number of reasons, and they're not always bad. What you have to do is keep pressing for the truth, to keep asking what you want. Because you're in charge of the situation, especially the more proof you have, the more you know, and the more you want to get to the bottom of it. If you can do it with some love, if you can do it when you're not raging and hurling accusations, the chances are your partner will ultimately pass up.
