According to AshleyMadison.com Founder & CEO Noel Biderman, affluence is a common element found on most city's top ten lists but Detroit is a bit of an anomaly.
"While the proclivity to cheat often goes hand in hand with opportunity- those with discretionary income are more likely to stray- in Detroit we've seen an increase in sign-ups both from those unaffected by the economic downturn, and those who've been impacted, using adultery is an escape to deal with the financial hardships."
