    Are you becoming a "Cyber Widow"? Is Facebook destroying too many close relationships?

    Top US divorce lawyers recently sited a drastic increase in "social media" evidence-based divorce cases.

    Other studies are finding that partners in close emotional relationships or marriages are spending most of their free time immersed in social media.

    It's not just the skyrocketing rate of direct sexual and emotional affairs that are happening between people in and from cyber-space. It's also that people are having emotional affairs with the the technology itself to the exclusion of their partners.

    Does social internet have any place in a healthy long term relationship?

    I don't believe its possible for the internet to destroy anyone's relationship.  I mean that is so silly.  If social media or any network has done this then the "relationship" was hanging on its last string and whomsoever already had one foot out the door.  People should pay attention to the tactics that some couples use to discontinue relationships as well as initiate whatever turmoil is needed to expedite the "needed separation".  Blaming it on social media is so lame, if social media did not exist the blame would be cast elsewhere. At the end of the day we all feel the "it's about to end pain" but the reality of accepting it probably hurts more than the person being successful with their tactic and leaving.

    any idiot that would hang his dirty undies  where people would see should to endure the reactions of people towards him.....my point been social network doesn't cause the how people feel..what they do nor how long they choose to spend in them....people decide themselves...so why should they be blamed for broken relationships

    YES, absolutely YES. I have write a lot about it in my Hub, "Love in the shadow of Internet". My personal thinking, in really nicely chosen words, is written over there - but in general : I will say that I am kind of man that prefer meeting females in face-to-face without prior "facebooking" or whatever... Where are the original emotions gone? Where are those butterflies or whatever when you see your date at the first time? Where is that awkward feeling, when you are freeze in a moment of kiss??? YOUTH , IN GENERAL - MISS ALL THAT.

    Yes, I agree with this statement. I have seen so many people who are always online and do not have time for their wives and kids. yes, facebook provides so many friends, but its addiction is really very harmful for those who forget everything except chatting or . . . .
    It can not be harmful only when you are using it for knowledge or time-pass. but if you will be addicted of it, then .. . it will certainly destroy your personal life.

    Yes, I think that it can cause damage to a relationship. I have a very close friend who started out chatting to an ex school friend on facebook. Although they lived several hundred miles apart, they contacted each other every day. She was married at the time and was always on her laptop and not spending much time at all with her husband. She told her husband one day that she was going to a hen party in London and actually met up with this "old friend" who she is now living with. Needless to say, the marriage ended and she moved to London to be with him. I think that the internet can be harmful to relationships if it is used in the wrong way.
