Written by Sonia Pasupathy

That is what Ashley Madison is telling us. Ashley Madison is an online dating site specifically targeted at married people, encouraging them to 'have an affair'. And now, the news is they want to come to Singapore. Do we really need a company like this that normalizes infidelity? Read on and decide for yourself.

Ashley Madison is an online company that helps married people to date. In essence, they are encouraging you to cheat on your partner. Yes, you read right, there is an actual group of people making a profit out of aiding others in being unfaithful.

It appears that the sanctity of marriage and the beautiful marriage vows that bind us ‘till death do us apart’ are slowly fading into the background. Divorce rates are rising and there now exists a legitimate company that thinks nothing of encouraging people to cheat on their spouses.

Their tagline boasts, ‘Life is short. Have an affair.’ Articles teaching you to ‘appreciate your affair partner’ and ‘how not to get caught cheating’ proudly line their Facebook page.

Ashley Madison in Singapore?!

Its proposed move into Singapore next year has created a flurry of reactions from Singaporeans throughout the island. A Facebook page set up by members of the public – Block Ashley Madison, Singapore, has been garnering support against the admittance of the site to the country.

So far, they have hit almost 26,000 likes from people who support the move towards blocking the site.

Mr. Chan Chun Sing, the Minister for Social and Family Development, said when interviewed last week that he is ‘against any website that harms marriage’.

He also made it clear that he feels that, ‘promoting infidelity undermines trust and commitment between husband and wife, which are core to marriage.’
