Mensagem:   Corno -  colloq. (but sometimes offensive) cuckold.
               You can also say "dumped" (in a codified way, because it may not be understood as a derogative, only that one´s "no longer welcome" to the girlfriend/wife´s relationship). Wether he wish that situation or not.

                Other way to say it, would be "he was cheated by his wife/bride/partner/girlfriend...etc".   By saying that, it´s advisable be careful, not to get into a conjugal spat, for example.    Being   careless with such sensitive matters may not be so good to health.
