2.5% of the UK married population are now members of married dating site IllicitEncounters.com.

500,000 married people are now searching for lovers on IllicitEncounters.com

I have been thinking about joining for a while, but it was this week that the pressure became too much to bear. My husband and I have tried to work through our problems, but I'm afraid our bodies just aren't in tune with one-another! I am looking for someone who makes my heart flutter; I miss that excitement of the first flush of a relationship.

After 7 years of serving British adulterers, IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s largest extramarital dating site, signed up its 500,000th member this weekend. The website has been running since 2003, and its membership now represents a whopping 2.5% of Britain’s married population.

The typical IllicitEncounters.com member is between the ages of 30 to 50, and has been married for around 7 years; adding some truth to the long-dreaded ‘7 Year Itch’ concept. Typically, the percentage of men and women on the site is around 55% and 45% respectively. Figures show the site’s popularity has been on a steady incline since its conception, and a sharper rise in members has been witnessed within the last year.

Adam Scott, CEO of the company, comments; “We believe that this significant milestone in our growth reflects a wider cultural shift in the institution of marriage and relationships in 21st Century Britain. Whilst the grandparents of our typical members were more likely to endure unhappy marriages, they are increasingly adopting a more pragmatic, Continental approach to maintaining their marriages; by having affairs to fill the gaps in their domestic situation.”

'Sahara', 34, from the West Midlands, was member number 500000; "I have been thinking about joining for a while, but it was this week that the pressure became too much to bear. My husband and I have tried to work through our problems, but I'm afraid our bodies just aren't in tune with one-another! I am looking for someone who makes my heart flutter; I miss that excitement of the first flush of a relationship."
