Have a "successful" extra-marital affair or get your money back -- this is what an Australian website has promised.
Noel Biderman, founder of the adultery website "ashleymadison.com" says in a slogan - "Life is short. Have an affair".
The website that was founded in 2001 has now launched what it calls the "ultimate money back guarantee", the Daily Mail reported. The site has a worldwide membership of over eight million people who prefer cheating on their spouses.
Speaking to Australia's Herald Sun daily, Biderman said affairs, just like marriages, had to be worked on.
"If you want to find the right level of success, we think there is the commitment level you need to make, and if it doesn't work out for you then we'll give you your money back," he was quoted as saying.
Users need not be worried as the site deletes communication between people. The users can also hide their true identities.Biderman - who has been married to wife Amanda for eight years - however said he would be "crushed" if he ever found out she cheated on him.
"I am faithful. My wife has emotional and physical needs I must meet. If I don't, she may cheat on me. And believe me, I'd be crushed if that were to happen," he said.
But Biderman's website has angered at least one family group in Australia.
Peter Stokes of the Family Council of Victoria said: "The sheer fact that he thinks there's a market out there shows how degraded we've become in terms what we think relationships are."
