I have been a member of Hub pages going on five years. I have published 8 books and write in many genres. Writing is my passion.

It All Becomes a Lie

You might find an old sweet heart or someone you were in love with a long time ago on a social network such as Facebook, Twitter, My Space etc. It may seem like harmless chatting going on but it is about to become the downfall to your present relationship.

If you are spending countless hours on the internet talking to someone and start forgetting about your family, your life has just become a lie. You might rekindle old feelings or think the grass is greener on the other side. It's not and you are setting yourself up for failure.

Everything your partner does now irritates you. You start fighting with them and then you split up for someone who has no interest in you and they only thought they were having fun. Then you have lost it all because of the internet.

Internet Conflict

Why are you giving in to the temptation

New research by a UK-based extra-marital dating site has reinforced claims that Facebook is fast becoming the quickest way to catch cheating spouses.

llicitencounters.com, the UK’s largest extra-marital dating agency, surveyed 800 of its members as to whether they had ever been “caught out”. 41% of those who had been stated that a dalliance on the social networking site played an important role in their downfall. Despite this, the number one mistake made by spouses is still mobile-related; over 61% of those surveyed said a text message had, at some point, either incriminated them totally or aroused suspicion about their affair.
The research comes after UK divorce site Divorce-Online found that 20% of divorce petitions submitted to its database contained the word “Facebook”.

Let's face it, we all love attention and those who get no attention from their spouses are the ones who end up in problems. If you can't spend time fixing your relationship then why would you try to find a new one.

When people fall in love and get married it is supposed to be until death us do part, but that is not the case and over 40 percent of facebook users will have affairs. This is a sad number.

Keep your marriage alive

Why saving your marriage is important

In the real world today, it's easier to walk away then try to work it out. Over half of marriages end in divorce within the first five years. I think it is imperative for people to try to find out what went wrong in their marriage or relationship and work at it before you try to just call it quits because some handsome man or pretty woman likes all your status up dates.

Why do you need to friend people you don't even know? Is it important to have 5,000 friends on Facebook. There are a lot of cruel people in the world and I have seen the best of marriages break up because of social media and then the very person that they had eyes for, no longer wants them. It was their whole plan to break up your marriage. Don't let it happen. We all can feel wanted by someone giving us their undivided attention.

Don't let people invade on your private life. It's no ones business what is happening in your home life and when you open up to them, you run the risk of them taking that information and using it against you.

How do you keep the music playing?

"How Do You Keep The Music Playing?"

How do you keep the music playing?
How do you make it last?
How do you keep the song from fading
too fast?

How do you lose yourself to someone
and never lose your way?
How do you not run out of new things
to say?

And since you know we're always changing
How can it be the same?

And tell me how year after year
You're sure your heart won't fall apart
Each time you hear his name?

I know the way I feel for you is now or never
The more I love, the more that I'm afraid
That in your eyes I may not see forever, forever

If we can be the best of lovers
Yet be the best of friends
If we can try with every day to make it better as it grows
With any luck than I suppose
The music never ends

I know (how do you keep the music playing)
the way I feel for you is now or never (how do you make it last)
The more I love the more that I'm afraid
(how do you keep the song from fading)
That in your eyes I may not see forever
(Keep the song from fading)
Forever

If we can be the best of lovers
yet be the best of friends
If we can try with every day to make it better as it goes
With any luck than I suppose
The music never ends (James Ingram)


It takes work

Wedding rings are the symbol of eternity and it is the circle that never has an ending. Whatever the reason is that you got married, remember that very reason before you decide to be with someone else. There had to be a time in your life when you loved your spouse and it is up to you to keep it alive.

Whatever you did to get that person and marry them, you need to continue forever. You can't buy flowers for six months and then stop. Keep the romance going. The little things you did to get her attention is why she fell in love with you.

Marriage is sacred and people need to realize that. Love your spouse enough to not let a social network destroy what you have worked so hard to obtain.
