Once you take marriage vows, you have what a sacred sanctity.
However, with up to 50 percent of all marriages ending in divorce, that's not exactly the case anymore—and online dating platform is well aware of this fact.
Cheating was never OK but this is seems a little too out the box—even for a social-media based society. And Ashley Madison isn't the only site where you can get your cheating on.
That's why we rounded them all up for you—because we thought there was a chance you might have some trouble really buying it.
And now we know that Ashley Madison's claims were implausible.
An investigation of the site's user database found that there were 31 million profiles for men.
However, only 20 million male "users" ever bothered to check their Ashley Madison message box even once, and only 11 million male users ever engaged the website's chat function, even once.
A lot of people clearly just signed up out of is, dummy accounts created by the Ashley Madison staff to make it look like there was a pool of women looking for action.
And by "astonishing," I mean that it looks like the number of real, live women using the site was somewhere between 1,500 and 10,000.
Which suggests that Ashley Madison might have been the greatest internet scam, ever.
They suckered a couple million guys into paying a boatload of money to have affairs with women who were nothing more than sockpuppets of Ashley Madison employees.
