They do not try to communicate many things to you. This situation is making you grow a suspicion if they might be having an affair. Although it might not be a real affair, there are possibilities they have fun when they are not around you.

You are not capable to control it. That is what we can call emotionally cheating. When your partner have something else to make them happy and that is not you.

Since being away from you gives them freedom to do what they want, they will try to get more of their time without you. They will prefer to do things without you.
