DECEIT
The expression Wearing the horns is an allusion to the mating habits of stags, who forfeit their mates when they are defeated by another male. In English, a cuckold is the husband of an adulterous wife. In evolutionary biology, the term is also applied to males who are unwittingly investing parental effort in offspring that are not genetically their own.
