Rooted in desire

Relationships are a nuanced topic and everyone has different reasons for joining a dating site like Ashley Madison. Our members are united in a desire to seek out real, discreet connections and Ashley Madison gives you a platform to search for what's missing.


The first married dating website

When Ashley Madison started in 2001, there weren't many places adults could go for married dating. Meeting someone at work or through friends is too risky when discretion is your number one concern and the old taboos are frowned upon. Many turned to traditional dating websites, but found it difficult to connect with people looking for a similar type of arrangement. Therefore, Ashley Madison was created as the first website that was open and honest about what you could find: like-minded people looking for married dating.

Our Story

As a place free of judgement, Ashley Madison revolves around the idea that consenting adults should be able to do whatever they want in private.

What began over a decade ago soon grew to be the international leader in the married dating space. Originally designed specifically for married women and men looking to have an affair in the most discreet way possible, it has since evolved to be so much more.
