New to consulting so asking a stupid question, but: is it frowned upon to leave the firm for an exit opp during a project? Does that burn a bridge?

My boyfriend (live together, srs relationship) has been working later and later in the past year. First he comes home at 10pm, then now almost 1-2 am. He is software engineer. Should I be worried about cheating? What are some signs I should look for? I believe he's just been at work this whole time.
