    the big moustache (street/foul language my occur!!)

    This thread may contain vulgar language!!!

    Dear teachers and friends

    How do we call someone who sleeps with other's wives? and how do we call someone who cheats on their husbands/wives etc?

    Are there more popular words for those?

    Thanks

    Nothing really... it is just that where I grew up, the person, let's say the husband whose wife is an adulterer/ess, usually is associted to a figure of a man who 'wears' a moustache! I believe it's not as funny there as it is here. The bigger the moustache is, the more active is his wife.
    It's funny til it happens to ourselves!

    Anyway, I remember that the words I'm looking for end in 'ee' and 'er/ess' for the one who is cheated on and the one who cheats, respectively.

    A man whose wife is unfaithful is a cuckold. This word is also a verb. John cuckolds Paul when he has sex with Paul's wife. If you were in a particularly creative mood, you could think up words like "cuckolder" and "cuckoldee", but they aren't real words.
