Dating for married people ashley
Have an affair.” That’s the tagline for Ashley Madison.com, a “dating” website for married people who want to cheat.
I first found out about it on an online message board for moms, where some admitted to having tried it out — only to be harshly judged by other moms in the group. I had just passed the 11-year mark in my marriage and was approaching 40 — official middle age.
Brian Krebs, the blogger who first reported the breach, said the hackers were threatening to release all Ashley Madison's customer records if the website isn't shut down.
The hackers called themselves the "Impact Team," and the potential release includes "profiles with all the customers' secret sexual fantasies and matching credit card transactions, real names and addresses, and employee documents and emails." In a statement, Avid Life Media, the parent company, said: "At this time, we have been able to secure our sites, and close the unauthorized access points.
So far, though, it isn't easy to find the exposed cheaters online.
That could change soon if the hackers decide to publish the information on a public website.
I decided to take an early retirement and, thus, liberate myself from the toxic world of office politics. I was no longer swimming with the sharks in a sea of cubicles. My wife was the cornerstone of the successful family we built together. When we met on Halloween there was an immediate connection.
My husband and I had fallen into a routine of arguing, mostly about our kids and how to properly parent them, our families, money and sex (or the lack thereof). Yet I wondered if I’d ever have the chance to feel a spark again.
A brief stint in couples counseling had changed nothing, and he continued to eat dinner and fall asleep in front of the TV every night. There were many things I still loved about him, and we both loved — and spent a lot of time with — our two young children. Eventually my curiosity got the better of me, and I joined Ashley Madison.
After reading through dozens of responses, I started to whittle down the list. I glanced furtively at the other customers around us. Years of feeling underappreciated, unattractive and not quite good enough as a mother, wife and employee were wearing on me.
I eliminated men over 50 (too old for me) and men under 30 (too young). We sat down at a large, crowded table and he told me about his personal life. We have three kids and we have a good working relationship.” He’d had one experience on Ashley Madison and it was a good one — strictly no strings attached, the affair lasted a few years until his mistress relocated to London. I felt useless and starved for meaning, but deep down I also knew that it was not my husband’s fault that I felt this way, and it would be a lie to say the state of our marriage was giving me no choice but to cheat.
