The Cost of Ashley Madison

By now pretty much everyone has heard of the site that promotes having an affair.  You sign-up and pay a fee to talk to someone else that is considering an affair.  I believe the cost is almost always paid by the man because the site needed to get more women to sign-up.

By now we also know the cost of Ashley Madison isn’t the fee they charge.  It is:

  • the life of the pastor that just committed suicide
  • the hundreds of people that are resigning their ministry positions.  Leaving thousands of people hurt.
  • the kids that will now have to see their dad every other weekend
  • the spouses’ that are dealing with life changing pain
  • the divorces that will be filed and led to hurt and more financial cost

The cost is great.  I would encourage this scandal to be a warning for all of us.  Get accountability, marital counseling, marriage books, etc.

I am reminded of this verse that helps to put in perspective the real cost of an affair:

Proverbs 22:1 – A good name is more desirable than great riches; to be esteemed is better than silver or gold.
