Avid Life Media Inc., the parent company of Ashley Madison, a matchmaking website for cheating spouses, said it was hacked and that the personal information of some of its users was posted online. The breach was first reported late Sunday, July 19, 2015, by Brian Krebs of Krebs on Security, a website that focuses on cybersecurity. (AP Photo/Lee Jin-man, File) Photo Credit: AP

I can't believe a website exists to help people cheat on their spouses ["Taking a dip in the Internet cesspool," Opinion, July 22]. No wonder this country is in moral decline. If people who cheat would put as much time and energy into their marriages as they do into having affairs, there would be fewer divorces.

What the cheaters don't realize is that when they get caught -- and eventually, they will -- it causes unbelievable hurt to their partners. If children are involved, they suffer, too.
