Even after 3 years on this site reading and learning about adultery and how common it is, I can't help but be SHOCKED when I read stuff like this:

http://www.thespec.com/Entertainment/article/749959

A couple of particularly nauseating quotes:

Quote
�Martial discord is very closely tied to economic issues,� Biderman says. �If you�re having challenges around your family finances, it�s really hard to all of a sudden turn on the intimacy dial and go upstairs and make passionate love to one another.�
Yeah, but it's no problem at all to hook up with a stranger you met online?

And what about this:
Quote
Susan, now 27, says she loves her husband and does not plan to leave him. More than that, she�s convinced Ashley Madison has helped her marriage: she�s made many friends who understand her, both male and female, and she�s now had four very satisfying affairs.
Not sure whether to puke or faint (or convulse) here so I'll let the reader make their own choice.

What has this world come to????

In other words, she is an unpaid STD ho who is giving it away for free over the internet. At least a prostitute is smart enough to get paid for putting out. This dim bulb is not even that smart; she puts out for free. crazy

Tabby1,

Susan, now 27, says she loves her husband and does not plan to leave him. More than that, she�s convinced Ashley Madison has helped her marriage: she�s made many friends who understand her, both male and female, and she�s now had four very satisfying affairs.

Barf, reminds me of my brother in-law who my wife wants me to get along with, and didn't understand why I didn't want to do coffee with him.

BIL spent 100K or more of his working wifes money at bawdy houses, propositioned my wife who is his sister in-law and somehow convinced my SIL that she caught a STD from a bathtub at a hotel.

All the while his wife is in blissful ignorance of all this. While at the Starbucks he spoke blithely about how he understands Tigers attraction to a porn star.

I had a funny thought sparked by the reference to Tiger. Can you just imagine "Susan's" reaction if her BH found out about her "4 satistying affairs"? Waaaaahh - want a tissue???

In a perverse way, I hope this article finds a wide audience. Then maybe some executive whose wife is a few years younger, working part-time at a fitness center, and suddenly VERY pleased with herself, is likely to start a little snooping.

At least, I can hope...

Ok folks,

Riddle me this. How is it showing power and strength to be a liar and a cheat? How is it empowering women to cheat? How is it empowering men to cheat? Why get married if one is going to cheat within a year or two? Why get married if one is uncertain they want to marry the other person?

I would really like folks opinions on this because as sickening as that article was, it clearly showing what many more people than I would have thought think about fidelity, marriage, and their own integrity.
