It was founded in 2002 by Darren Morgenstern, with the slogan: "Life is short.
Unlike or e Harmony, Ashley Madison's business model is based on credits rather than monthly subscriptions.
For a conversation between two members, one of the members—almost always the man—must pay five credits to initiate the conversation.
This is the major reason espoused for committing adultery – it is human nature.
It is argued that humans are not meant to be monogamous.
Unfortunately, adultery generates such a crushing emotional impact, it is often very hard to resolve a divorce in an uncontested or efficient fashion once this is known. section 19-6-5(a)(8), the statute authorizing the award of permanent alimony, mentions the consideration of "relevant factors", adultery is not a relevant factor in determining the amount of alimony to be awarded. When assessing an alimony claim, the relevant inquiry is: (1) is wife barred entirely by adultery or desertion; (2) if not, the decision whether to grant her alimony should be made considering the factual cause of the separation and considering husband's conduct toward her; and (3) the amount of alimony should be set considering the factual cause of the separation, the wife's need and the husband's ability to pay. As a legal matter, questions concerning "dating" or affairs, both pre and post separation, are usually fair game in discovery (subject to the witnesses' right to assert privilege).
