Social Networks are Ruining Relationships

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

Internet conflict

When Lies Become Truth

I have witnessed so many relationships break up because of so many websites. First it all starts off as an innocent friend request and because we spend so much time on these social networks we need to have as many friends as possible to read our status updates. Then you engage in some chat back and forth and start telling each other everything that is wrong in their relationship. This behavior is just wrong and people need to start working on their relationships instead of thinking the grass is greener on the other side.

Next he or she is writing cute little things on your page and putting that cute little heart to peak everyones attention. Then you start getting email even though it specifically states that you are married on your profile. Then when your husband or wife passes by your computer and sees it WA LA the lie has become the truth.

I really can't fathom that someone who lives on the other side of the world that just ruined your marriage will even give you the time of day now.

Have we become so needy for friends that we accept any and everybody that requests our friendship and you dont know really who they are. I found ten profiles for the same person all stating they lived somewhere else with practically nude pictures on it and I reported it to the site because for one children are present there and two it flat out states no nudity allowed in photos.

People respect your partners and only accept people that you know as your friends. In this internet society that we live in you do not know who is on the other side of that computer and it may come back to bite you hard.

Do you really need 4,0000 friends to partake in your daily life? Do you really need to stray on the web because someone looks hot? Remember why you fell in love and give love in return.

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., 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)

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.
