It was founded in 2002 by Darren Morgenstern, with the slogan: "Life is short.
Have an affair." The company received attention on July 15, 2015, after hackers stole all of its customer data—including emails, names, home addresses, sexual fantasies and credit card information—and threatened to post the data online if Ashley Madison and fellow Avid Life Media site Established were not permanently closed.
Most people would probably agree that viewing women as merely possessions to be controlled on the part of men, whether they're White, Asian, or whatever else, is not going to win the hearts of many women, Asian or otherwise.
Finally, as supporting evidence, the second table on this page (below) comes from the 2000 Census as well and it shows the percentages of unmarried Asian men and women who are living with members of the opposite sex.
At first glance, these statistics may seem rather unbelievable since they tend to show very high levels of intermarriages, especially among Koreans and Filipinos. S.-raised only represent less than 20% of all marriages involving Asian Americans.
Many readers will undoubtedly argue that these numbers do not correspond to their own personal experiences and observations. First, keep in mind that these numbers are only for marriages in which both spouses are U. Second, other related research shows that intermarriages are much more common outside of the major urban areas where most young Asian Americans lives.
These critiques also don't point out that patriarchy and sexism still exists within many elements of traditional Asian culture.
In other words, these outdated beliefs can be very restrictive and stifling when it comes to the range of options Asian women have in choosing a marriage partner.
