James Bond, David Patraeus and John Allen, Paula Broadwell and Jill Kelley

Although not married to each other David Patraeus and Paula Broadwell seem to have had a relationship of a sexual kind. General Patraeus (aged 60) and Broadwell (aged 40) probably met when Broadwell was writing about Patraeus. For some reason Broadwell (it was discovered) was sending abusive, anonymous emails to Jill Kelley (aged 38). When this was discovered it was also unearthed that Kelley was involved, at least in flirty emails, to General Allen (aged 58).
