We are seeking to challenge the orthodoxy, as often expressed in the British media, that affairs are necessarily destructive to marriages
London, UK (PRWEB UK) 3 November 2011
UndercoverLovers.com, the UK’s premier dating agency for philanderers, will have a stand at The UK Wedding Shows, to be staged in London, Manchester, Newcastle, Coventry and Harrogate in early 2012. The company will be offering advice sessions to the young couples attending the show, presenting a more realistic view of marriage than the rose-tinted version being sold elsewhere at the exhibition.
UndercoverLovers.com spokesperson Emily Pope comments: “Our motives for exhibiting at The Wedding Shows are entirely positive. Statistically more than 50% of the soon-to-be married exhibition attendees will eventually separate. We plan to attend the show with leading French relationship expert and authoress Dr Maryse Vaillant, with the intention of offering attendees guidance on some of the potential pitfalls that lie ahead in married life and ways to avoid their marriages becoming another statistic.
Emily Pope adds: “The French and English have traditionally had very different attitudes towards marital infidelity. Dr Vaillant, France’s most prominent female psychologist, believes wives should welcome their husbands’ extra-marital affairs as a sign of a healthy marriage.”
Dr Vaillant says “Most men don’t have affairs because they no longer love their wives. On the contrary, they simply need breathing space. Once women accept that fidelity is not natural but cultural and that infidelity is essential to the psychic functioning of certain men who are still very much in love, it can be very liberating."
Emily Pope states for UndercoverLovers.com: “We're aware that our exhibiting at The Wedding Shows will be controversial. But we are genuinely planning to present an alternative view of marriage in a sincere and honest way, with the intention of stimulating intelligent debate. We believe that British attitudes to adultery are often hypocritical. In a recent survey we conducted, 90% of 5000 British respondents said infidelity is wrong. Yet when asked if they would be unfaithful if guaranteed to get away with it, 55% of the same respondents said they would. We are seeking to challenge the orthodoxy, as often expressed in the British media, that affairs are necessarily destructive to marriages.”
She continues: “The success of Undercover Lovers proves that in reality more and more British spouses are adopting a more Continental approach to their marriages by having affairs, but are not necessarily being honest about it due to outdated societal mores. We aim to create a more open discussion about the issue and exhibiting at The Wedding Shows is intended to form part of this initiative.”

UndercoverLovers.com was launched two years ago and is now the UK’s foremost extra-marital dating agency. With over 550,000 members, the site was created to provide a safe, discreet and non-judgmental environment, where married women and men can meet. The majority of the site’s members are 30 and 40 something professionals earning on average £10k more than the country's average wage and have been married 5+ years. Unusually for a dating website, Undercover Lovers has an even 50:50 ratio of men and women.
Undercover Lovers members are generally seeking to fill the gaps in their marital relationships, be they of a physical or emotional nature. They often describe their relationships with their spouses as having become more like a friendship. For a variety of reasons they are not looking to dissolve their marriages (financial, children, much still OK with the marriage etc.). Meeting someone in a similar situation, and thus with the same expectations of a relationship, is for many the best solution.
