Tinder is to give couples a chance to get a taste of romance at the touch of a button by opening up a dating app for married couples.
The online dating app will allow couples to meet, chat and flirt with each other without worrying about the repercussions of being married.
It is set to launch in the UK on Wednesday, and will be available in Germany, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain and Sweden.
It comes as Britain’s Marriage and Family Court hears a number of divorce cases, including one involving a lesbian couple who are seeking to split up.
Tinder is a popular online dating service and will allow users to meet up with one another via the app and chat in person, with no obligation to get married or divorce.
But the service is currently restricted to married couples who are in a civil partnership.
According to the company, the app is designed to help couples who do not want to marry or have a civil relationship.
It offers “a way to meet people in a safe and nonjudgemental environment”, with a “simple and effective way to start a relationship”.
Tinder said that while the app was designed for single people, couples could find it “a great way to share life experiences” and explore new things together.
“The app is a way to connect and chat without having to worry about the consequences of being in a relationship,” said Tinder’s chief executive, Josh Harkinson.
“It is a safe, easy and fun way to chat with people.”
The company’s chief marketing officer, Chris Norey, said the company was making the app to give “couples the opportunity to explore the benefits of living together in a way that is meaningful and honest”.
“We’ve taken the concept of a dating platform to the next level and are making it accessible to everyone in the same way as our other products,” he added.
The new service is not available in the US or Australia yet.
However, the firm has plans to expand in other markets, including Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and the UK.
