Controversial website, claims to help spouses cheat

Ashley-Madison, a website that helps people cheat on their spouses has become a multi-million dollar company. It was started in 2002 by Canadian, Noel Biderman.

"For a lot of people it's a marriage preservation device it may be an unhealthy marriage preservation device but it is a preservation device," Biderman said.

Ed Young, the pastor of a neighborhood church believes everyone should already know that adultery is wrong.

"It does not take Dr. Phil or a relational rocket scientist to say that is wrong," Young said.

Young also believes that God belongs back in the bedroom.

"Let's bring the bed back in church and God back in the bed. and say hey this is the best way. I believe when you do that it'll take your marriage and your life to a "whole nutha level," Young adds.

To make that point in 2008, Young brought a "real" bed into his church.

Young's wife Lisa believes its important that everyone, both young and old need to learn about sex.

"I grew up in a home where sex wasn't even talked about openly. So these are things we want to not only communicate to our children but also to our church."

Though cameras were not allowed inside, many church goers were expected to attend the debate.

"I think it's messed up that somebody would do that and I want to see Ed Young just kind of nail it," Dan Baldis a local parishioner.

The two men have not ruled out a debate in the future. The cheating website has more than 140,000 members in the Dallas-Fort Worth area alone.
