The UK’s leading affair dating website is seeking a parliamentary debate about the future of modern marriage. With the high rate of divorce, an increase of people choosing not to marry and hundreds of thousands of unhappy spouses joining dating sites looking for affairs, IllicitEncounters.com is campaigning for the UK government to introduce renewal dates on marriages.
The controversial proposal has been put forward by the dating site whose purpose is to help unhappily married people find other unfulfilled married people to have affairs with.
A new independent study conducted by Atomik research revealed that over one third of people believe they married the wrong person. In addition, further research conducted by IliicitEncounters.com discovered over 59% of married people feel the marriage system is outdated and nearly a third would support a renewable marriage lasting between 5-8 years.
The site has written an open letter to both members of parliament and religious leaders. The letter is proposing a review of the current marriage laws and hopes to introduce a time limit on the validity of a marriage contract. The site is claiming that its purpose would “spare incompatible couples the expense of lengthy divorce proceedings and the social stigma and emotional trauma consciously uncoupling can cause.”
Spokesperson for the campaign and IllicitEncounters.com Mike Taylor commented; “Marriage should be just like a passport or driver’s license. If individuals are not interested in renewing it, then it expires. If something isn’t working people don’t just live with it. People are more than willing to change their car or washing machine if it has stopped working, why would they stay in a marriage that isn’t working if they weren’t being forced to stay due to financial burdens?”
IllicitEcounters.com maintains it is a pragmatic solution to solving the infidelity epidemic and stopping people who are trapped in unhappy marriages having to look outside them for fulfillment. These days, as Mike Taylor points out, “Those who can’t afford a divorce just suffer indefinitely.”
The site is asking supporters to write to their MP to ask for their support and are providing an open letter on the campaigns website: www.yestorenewablemarriage.com you can also sign the petition direct at epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/71446
The campaign expects opposition from both the Church of England and the Catholic Church who have been at the forefront of opposing Illicit Encounters proposals. However the site welcomes the healthy debate as it has large amounts of members from both faiths, and is certain they will be writing to their church leaders to voice support for the campaign.
