Sepp Blatter may well mock our reproachful attitude to John Terry's alleged infidelity, but in doing so he disconnects himself from the heartache that such choices cause.

A cavalier male attitude may be to see such playing away as fair game for the potent sportsman, but in our more enlightened times, the consequences of action are always kept in view.

A wife may have been betrayed, the children's security placed under threat, trust compromised, embarrassment brought upon family and friends, unwelcome headlines distracting from his job and leadership and his own heart left torn in loyalty, mired in deceit and confused in direction.

Affairs may be joked about with bravado but on reflection, it is clear that an affair is more often, nothing other than a disaster for all involved.
