Warning: Affairs can be very damaging to a marriage

When I posted the 'Life is Short - Have an Affair' dating agency video a couple of days ago I was thinking 'only in America'. How wrong I was. I don't know which side of the Atlantic the 'discreet and confidential extra-marital dating service' Illicit Encounters is based, but it currently boasts 395, 832 'genuine UK users'. What I like best about Illicit Encounters is their disclaimer, which requires no comment:

"WARNING: NOT EVERYONE IS SUITED TO HAVING AN AFFAIR. THEY ARE NOT AN ALTERNATIVE TO WORKING ON OR ENDING A MARRIAGE. NOT ALL AFFAIRS HAVE A POSITIVE EFFECT ON A MARRIAGE, SOME CAN BE VERY DAMAGING. ALWAYS CONSIDER OTHER PEOPLE AND IF YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE AN AFFAIR, PLEASE SELECT YOUR PARTNER WISELY."

  1. I'm pretty sure that a disclaimer is not needed for a married dating site for adults.

    The women and men, couples that join married dating sites have no intention on working on there marriage.

    It should say, we take no responsibly for connecting cheating wives and husbands together for its wrong but hey we don't care we are getting rich.

  2. And how long before the wrong spouses sue their rich asses?

  3. If you are suggesting that the 'wronged' spouses sue the dating agencies, then I don't see that they would have any cause of action against them.
