  1. Great content, But Having to deal with infidelity is to make sure you are not just assuming your partner is cheating, as a policy , don’t say they are cheating until you have gathered proof of their act, confrontation without evidence is just unacceptable, i contacted @brandhackers1 on Instagram and on WhatsApp on +19163042321. i was in the eye of the storm with my now Ex , i saw all her mails, WhatsApp messages, Kik and even pictures she exchanged with her lover, but it was easier at the end really, having proof helps lot.
