LONDON: Divorce is never an easy option. And couples on the brink of splitting irrevocably are generally in need of counselling, comfort and advice.
But one cheating website has decided to take advantage of couples at their lowest ebb by attempting to recruit new members with the launch of a crass Win-A-Divorce competition.
Visitors to Maritalaffair.co.uk are required to enter their e-mail address to get a chance of winning £1 800 (R23 350) towards legal fees for a divorce.
The most recent figures from Britain’s Office of National Statistics (ONS) show that divorce rates increased 4.9 percent in 12 months – the first rise in divorce rates in eight years.
ONS figures also reveal the rate of divorce is 200 times higher than 100 years ago, despite the rate of marriage being comparatively lower.
The competition has sparked fierce debate, and a radio show on BBC Newcastle dedicated a debate to the issue. –
