Last year, the second biggest day for female sign-ups on AshleyMadison.com (the dating website for married people) was the day after Mother's Day.
Momlogic has exclusively learned that 31,427 women signed up for AshleyMadison.com this year -- which is over ten times the average number of women who typically sign up on any given Monday.
Why does one need a website specifically for cheating? Isn’t that what regular dating sites are for?
Anything to make a buck.
As a single man with a woman in my life who I believe I will marry soon, this article makes me sick to my stomach. My biggest fear is that my wife will wake up one morning and not love me anymore, and that makes me want to work that much harder to keep our relationship stable and happy.
The ease of divorce in this world is a pox on society.
Some Moms were not appreciated by their husbands on Mothers Day ...
If those guys refused to do their homework, the women will wander elsewhere...
it does work both ways of course...
Not that its right...
It’s “Mothers Day”, not “Wives Day.”
Unashamed and in the open. Amazing.
In saner times, adultery was a shame of the highest order.
Not to mention one of those pesky Commandments.
The downward spiral and coarsening of American society continues, unabated.
I guess I’m just of the old school that says men should honor their wives as the MOTHERS of their children...
I ducked just in time to avoid the #10 cast iron skillet :-)
Right ... if you got kids and you take this postion you'll be sleeping outside on the stick pile.
Lol! You sound like MY hubby!
Of course, the same excuse works for Father’s day, too.
Sickening. Just sickening...
Amen. So much so, that I will never marry again.
Don't kid yourself. Just look at the recent episode of the sitcom, The Middle for an example of this sentiment.
I bet the day after Valentine's Day is a big day for the cheater site as well.
LOL, I’m the one who has to do all the work for the Anniversary and Valentine’s Day, but I told my kids that Mothers Day was all theirs’, they selected the gift, and I paid for it.
If you have any fear that she is that shallow, DO NOT MARRY HER.
I’m sure that she is a wonderful person, and I don’t mean any disrespect to her. But this is something that you have to be 1000% certain of.
Hollywood, romance novels and the media have convinced people, particularly women, that we should be happy 100% of the time and our relationships should be nothing but strawberries and orgasms. That is not reality. Marriage takes effort. There are good times and bad times. The love you have for each other will grow into a more meaningful one than they one that leads you to marry her in the first place.
Run like hell!
I agree with you. I would not dream of ignoring my husband, who is an amazing father, on Father’s Day, just because he is not MY father. But many men seem to feel that it is a day only for their own mother.
Something tells me you have nothing to worry about. Your future wife is a lucky gal. I hope you will have many years of happiness. I think you will.
Women in America have been raised to believe they should be catered to, at work and at home. When they aren’t, when they are merely treated as equals, they feel insulted. Thanks to the NOW gang.
Then again, they also said he should have bought these same things at Christmas, Valentine's Day, birthday, and wedding anniversary. Lousy man. I'll teach him, I'll sign up online to date even bigger losers.
Essentially, the top 3 are the days after Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, and New Year's. You could probably add birthdays and anniversaries to those, but they are spread out so it doesn't get the spike of the big three.
Essentially, husbands have 5 days of the year that their wives demand pampering and a planned big day, or there is a big drop in the relationship status. Mother's day is actually more problematic, because you as a dad have to get the kids away from mom to a place that has crafts (that you plan in advance) to make her something homemade that she will treasure.
Remember that old commercial for Longines watches
“It’s nice, but I was hoping for a Longines.”
To which everytime I saw it on TV, I’d yell at the TV, ‘YOU BITCH!’
Yep. I think jewelry store ads are responsible for more divorces than any other factor.
“Its Mothers Day, not Wives Day.”
True, but an adulterous mother is a crappy mother.
When you cheat, you cheat on your whole family. Not just your “lousy husband.”
“Women in America have been raised to believe they should be catered to, at work and at home.”
You are painting with too broad of a brush, there.
The American women I know, for the most part, are working very hard and always have been.
I have not been pampered on ANY of those days (Valentines, New Years Day, Mother’s Day).
And I never strayed, anyway. Never even considered it.
it’s catering to people who wants ‘no-strings’ attached relationship. unlike a regular dating site which you get mixed bags. that’s my guess.
And where do you think kids learn to love, honor, and respect their mothers? From their fathers, you dolt!
I’m single and my first dating rule is - NO married women!
I think you’re doing it wrong.
“Essentially, husbands have 5 days of the year that their wives demand pampering and a planned big day, or there is a big drop in the relationship status.”
I’d like to believe that the vast majority of wives do not have the immature and ignorant perspective of a spoiled juvenile princess, and do not think, even remotely, along those incredibly selfish lines.
But many men seem to feel that it is a day only for their own mother.
Often that is just an excuse...
to ignore their wives...
the proof of the pudding is if they teach their children to honor and respect THEIR mothers...
Part of recognizing their wives as the mothers of their children is teaching the children...
The children will later do what they see Dad do...
What about your birthday ???
I don’t even expect some big, planned whatever for my birthday! Juvenile and selfish, that is an excellent way to put it, EyeGuy.
Whenever I make a comment like that, I exclude the Conservative women in this country, especially those found here. I would have thought the NOW gang comment would make that clear. I don’t use the /s icon or over-explain here, because I tend to give Freepers more credit than I do those outside this board.
I recently read that the fantasy most popular with a married man is to ‘do the wives best friend.’ A married woman’s most popular fantasy is a ‘man in uniform.’ What struck me is that a married man has a particular person in mind...with a name and face, whereas; a married woman really just has some vision of ‘escape and fantasy’ in her head.
This ‘hooking-up’ sounds great in theory but, ‘the morning after’ will absolutely pollute the soul. Surely, we all made huge mistakes with the wrong person back in high school or college and can relate. My advice, as some dude on this blog, is to 1) get a divorce if things are so bad. 2) Do something sexy and naughty with your husband...go to a pick-up bar and get feeling crazy with him or rent a video or 3) Buy batteries. same advice for you bored men....except the batteries part.
Whatever feeling you want and need is out there. You do not, however; need to wake up the next morning feeling like a whore who betrayed your family, your value systems, and most importantly, yourself.
and 3 or 4 while your at it...
What are the five days?
Your anniversary, her birthday, Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, and New Years Eve.
Mature wives know to temper their expectations and not let it affect their relationship much. There probably still is a small sense of disappointment though--depending on her group of friends and media exposure.
Mexican mayor allegedly beats wife on mother’s day
Actually, it’s quite the opposite of Hollywood. She’s six years my senior and recently widowed due to her late husband’s affinity for pain killers. I’ve never met someone who I feel so wholeheartedly connected with. We take turns with chores, she gives me leeway with my schoolwork, I fix things around the house and cook. The symbiosis is like none I’ve ever experienced, and I have to say my confidence for our relationship is higher than any I’ve been in before.
I do agree that Hollywood and society in general has turned women into creatures of need as opposed to PARTNERS in a pact of love and devotion for life. The feminist revolution has continued to make women think they are superior to men instead of equal on life’s terms. We have disagreements and spend a lot of time on the porch talking and playing cards, but we never go to sleep angry and always part ways with a kiss. It’s not utopian, and we both know that; but as long as we both a committed to the partnership, we’ll never fail.
Right on. Sounds like yours will be a wonderful marriage.
Don’t believe all of the cliches you hear about marriage. Most of it is dogma. Marriage is wonderful.
