A website for married people seeking affairs has been given the go-ahead by a French court to continue luring people to cheat on their spouses.

Website Gleeden was sued by a French Catholic Association in 2015 after it advertised its services in public.

The ads were a little cheeky.

According to The Local, one read:

Contrary to anti-depressants a lover costs the social security system nothing

And another read:

Being faithful to two men means you are twice as faithful

Its website, which has more than three million members (excuse the pun), states:

Whether you are looking for an affair in your area or a lover miles away from you while on a trip, Gleeden.com gives you a specific platform to safely get in touch with cheaters worldwide.

The Association accused the website of publicly promoting infidelity, but the court dismissed the complaint because adultery is not a crime in France.

Caroline Mecary, the lawyer for Gleeden, told the Associated Press:

It is a victory of freedom of speech over religious bigotry.
