    On the individual level, If a cellphone ruins your relationship, you didn't have much of a relationship to begin with.
    On a societal level, relationship styles are changing. What you learned about them as a child might not work when you reach adulthood. That's because society is moving forward into unknown social and technical territory very swiftly.
    For instance, no one had mobile facebook and the ability to send pictures--from wherever you're at--just fifteen years ago. But people are highly adaptable. They can use these tools to enhance or destroy a relationship. I don't think the technology forces you to do anything either way. It's the way you choose to use these new tools that count.

    I would go with "no".

    The only way I can see cell phones ruining relationships is if the relationship had no real support whatsoever to begin with and/or the people involved are idjits.

    It could be if a person in constantly on the phone playing games, texting-with other people-watching movies and so far.  If you are in a relationship and the other person feels that he/she is second place to the phone then yes it may ruin a relationship.  It is best to set the phone aside and use it for fun stuff for a specific amount of time-maybe an hour or two a day, so the needs of the other person are not ignored.  Some people might turn to cell phones when there is nothing else to do in the house.  Maybe a change of scenery is what is needed, like going to a movie, going out to eat and such is all that is needed.  I don't have a cell phone but have a Kindle and know how time consuming it can be.  I limit it to an hour or two a day.

    The cell phone is just another tool for communication.
    We live in a era where people are always looking to place the blame on Face Book, Twitter, Cell phones, and Online dating...etc
    Both cell phones and forks are (tools).
    And yet no obese person would ever blame their fork for their weight gain! How one decides to use a tool determines the consequences!
    Ultimately it comes down to the individual and (their) choices.
