Could evidence indicating a husband paid for membership to internet dating services help a woman obtain a “get” ?

Yes, such evidence could certainly help, as part of the wife’s evidence to prove that her husband had committed adultery, but is not sufficient on its own. the Ashkelon Rabbinical Court specifically cited documentation presented by a wife proving that her husband had paid for internet dating membership on his credit card as part of the evidence that persuaded it to accept her divorce plea. Other evidence presented by the wife proved the husband had committed adultery a number of times, with different women, the rabbinical court held. It rejected the husband’s plea for “Shalom Bayit” (marital reconciliation), saying that all the evidence indicated that it had been filed for tactical reasons only, and not in good faith.
