Did that title grab your attention? Let me first say that I don't and NEVER will condone cheating of any kind, no matter what justification is given, yet when I found out about www.ashleymadison.com, I had to check it out for myself because the idea of it just seemed so unbelievable and crazy!
In case you haven't heard, the title above is the actual tag line of an actual site for married people wanting to meet others for 'discreet' encounters. Women pay nothing to be a member, but men are charged about $300 annually to participate. There's even a special fee to have your profile removed if you prefer. Wow!
Despite alleged sales of 55+ million, www.Ashleymadison.com is banned in several countries and many television stations won't air their ads.
Clearly, their focus isn't on providing current information because the Blog on the website hasn't really been updated since December 2014; however, it does take the time to give tips on how to have an affair, which celebrities are cheating, erotic stories and infidelity statistics for those who may interested.
As long as cheating brings big bucks, all is ok, I guess. What has happened to monogamy and commitment? Is that now a thing of the past? Is being old fashioned outdated?
Apparently Noel Bidermann, co-owner and mastermind behind this site, who by the way, earns $ 5 million dollars a year and claims to be happily married, doesn't care about assisting men (or women) with dishonest and shady behavior as long as he achieves a hefty bottom line. I wonder just how he would feel if his wife anonymously signed up to use the site he so lovingly promotes? Also, I believe that people who cheat are abusing their significant others by lying, gaslighting, playing games, withholding funds and other forms of domestic violence.
What I'd really enjoy is a debate between www.chumplady.com who shares how to get out of cheating relationships, and Noel Biderman, who believes it's okay to sell extramarital affairs, to see who comes out on top. Me - I'm definitely Team Chumplady!
But don't take my word for it. Check out the site for yourself to form your own opinion, then let us know what you think.
Just visiting the website made me feel dirty. I don't think monogamy is out of fashion. That's just what people like Mr. Biderman would like to have the world believe as he continues to prosper from hurtful and loathsome behavior.ReplyDelete
Hey There Kimboxin: I know, right? Still shocked that there is a website such as this that not only promotes cheating, yet makes a ton of money from it! I'm with you, and believe that people should remain faithful and committed. Long live monogamy!!!! Hugs and thanks for stopping by.Delete
To me that is just so disgusting and really such a disappointment that people think it's okay behavior. What's the point in being in a relationship if you're just going to carry on and treat it like it's nothing? Blerg. That really just bothers me.ReplyDelete
Totally agree with you, Anna.I don't understand why people get into relationships than don't honor the commitment. It just seems simpler to move on, instead of cheating. I feel so strongly about this type of behavior that it's a deal breaker if it's the main theme in a novel, tv program or movie. I know it's not Christian, but if someone does it that I actually know, the respect is totally gone. Hugs...Delete
