Default Should I trust him?

Hi. I started having trust issues a few months ago. It all started with the way my husband was behaving shortly after we had a baby.
It all started when he was gone on business one weekend, I wanted to pay a bill so I had to check his credit card statement to see if it had been paid yet and I found all kinds of strange charges on it. After talking with him (nonaccusingly) he claimed he let his friend use his credit card for his affair. I don't like this but over time I know this is true...A few weeks later my husband and baby were napping in the same room so I went to turn the volume down on his phone and an open text message lit up talking about "getting naked and wanting you" but it was from someone he claims is a guy forwarding it to him from a girl hes seeing. Needless to say he got really mad at me and thought I opened it. Both of these things were not on purpose. But then I became paranoid and did open a text that just said "babe?" and then even called a number that popped up from a text and it was a girl. He texts all the time, day and night, he goes out with the guys every Saturday and stays the night, and he does 1-2 overnights shifts and work.
I don't know if I am being completely paranoid and mean or if my suspicions are true.

Without a doubt!

How do you know the friend that used his card was really cheating? Lets give him the benefit of the doubt and say that is true (although I think he is feeding you a line of crap and got a friend to cover his story), so he was enabling someone to cheat? So he sees nothing wrong with it? Birds of a feather...

And as far as his phone. Don't feel guilty about looking at it! You have a family, why in the world should his phone be off limits to you? My SO and I are regularly in and on each others phones. Not for snooping but so what if you do. If there is nothing to hide there is no issue. Don't let him turn the tables on you. A text talking about getting naked and a girl texting him "babe" is the issue, not you looking at his phone. That is just ridiculous and WAY more than a red flag, that's a 2x4 to the face. I mean really?

Go CIA on him and gather the evidence. Lots of red flags and no, do not trust him. I'm sorry you're here.

Sounds bad. Don't trust.

Become a spy, gather intel and look for hard evidence. Do not trust what he says, look at only what he does.

The mere fact he got angry and won't let you look at his phone is enough to warrant suspicion. The credit card stuff would make me apesh1t crazy. I suggest sharing that info with his "friends" wife. He is either lying to you about that or enabling a cheater? Either way don't stand for that.

Let him be mad. Tell him to straighten up or give you half his stuff and get out.

Don't trust. 100% trust should never be the rule. It's what creates the environment that allows cheating to happen. In your case all of the signs of cheating are there and him hanging out with cheaterws and supporting cheaters only prove he is not opposed to cheating.

You should immediately start gathering evidence.

He has all-night boys night outs??? Strabge texts talking about getting naked? Credit card charges? Um, no question. He is cheating. He is taking you for a ride. You don't even need anymore evidence. You have it all right there.

Don't go labeling your instincts as "trust issues."
Sorry to hear you are dealing with this while being a new mom.
It would be so nice if your H stayed home to have family time instead of this going out overnight with the guys thing.
That together with the credit card and the phone doesn't really sound as though it adds up to anything but an un-pretty picture.
It's your marriage so don't apologize for wanting to make sure that it's rock solid. And don't let anyone including and especially your husband tell you that you're feeling insecure because of having had a baby. I would feel uncertain and concerned about all the things you stated.

Don't say anything more to him about anything. Just set up the necessaries and start collecting information: VAR, apps, view phone bill etc.

If you know this friends info, tell his wife that her husband is having an affair and your hubby is helping to cover it up. Guarantee, that friend will blow your husband out of the water and he will have no choice but to confess.

Your man is cheating, don't be concerned with making him angry. You need to get angry.

Titannia, He is cheating. First of all, it's not ok for him to spend the night out with the boys... He is not a boy. He is supposed to be a man and take care of the family. You need to put a little more leash on him. He is straying. The anger at the phone is he's angry he got caught and is being defensive...

Don't get angry, get information... He has a girl under a Guy's name to cover it up. My EX Wife did that kind of thing too.

Is he in junior high? Wow, passing messages for a friend! Does he really expect you to believe such nonsense? Married people do not have sleepovers, children do, and he does this every weekend? Why are you still putting up with this behavior? He is disrespecting you, your marriage and your vows. Time to stand up for yourself.
