Trawling the web for an illicit encounter

illicitCan an affair help a marriage?

Or will it inevitably end in disaster?  Radio 4′s Woman’s Hour looks at one website which helps people who are looking for an affair to find sex locally. 

A couple speak openly about how the wife’s affair – begun after 13 years of marriage - actually strengthened their relationship.

But Angela, appearing on the programme, says that “industrialising” the process of infidelity is morally reprehensible. “It’s playing Russian roulette with your marriage,” she says.

Wayne Bridge spits out his dummy

Tuesday, March 2nd, 2010

wayne-bridgeIf Wayne Bridge is looking for sympathy he’d better look elsewhere.

Angela has made her views abundantly clear in her Manchester Evening News column this week, and attracted a record number of responses online.

“In letting his territorial approach to an already shattered love life spill onto the pitch, he showcased an outrageous lack of professionalism,” she thunders. “ As an act of spitting out the dummy, it takes some beating.”

Refusing to shake his hand was, she says, “weak and petulant”. I’m guessing she’s  not too impressed with his on-pitch snub to John Terry, the bloke wot pinched his bird.
