MSNBC - Mar 30 - Writer signs up for Ashley Madison and meets with husbands to figure out why they stray. In her profile, she says that she is married, because many of the men don't want the complications of seeing a single woman. Overnight she receive 164 messages. 68% of the site's members are men, and their average age is 44. You think this is a site for sex in motels. Ashley Madison's president, Noel Biderman, certainly does. He says that the men are there for one thing. "This is about sex." He is wrong that all the men on AM want sex and sex alone. There are plenty of men who says he is happily married when what he really means is he is complacently bored. They might be looking to fall in love. On Ashley Madison, wives are mostly reduced to pronouns, and in that reduction they are less a human than a fact that shares their home. In the most extreme, these pronouns become antiheroes to the plan. One of the most striking things about Ashley Madison users is that they can literally be anybody.
Scott Haltzman, M.D., author of The Secrets of Happy Families said: "Use this article as a starting point to talk about your fears and ways to keep things fresh." Haltzman's tip: Try something new together, regularly.
