Facebook Destroys Marriages

submitted on January 24, 2011 by siggy38 in "Member's Lounge"

One in five divorces involve the social networking site Facebook, according to a new survey by the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers.

A staggering 80 per cent of divorce lawyers have also reported a spike in the number of cases that use social media for evidence of cheating.

Flirty messages and photographs found on Facebook are increasingly being cited as proof of unreasonable behaviour or irreconcilable differences.

Many cases revolve around social media users who get back in touch with old flames they hadn’t heard from in many years.

Facebook was by far the biggest offender, with 66 per cent of lawyers citing it as the primary source of evidence in a divorce case. MySpace followed with 15 per cent, Twitter at 5 per cent and other choices lumped together at 14 per cent.

    I believe if you are happy in your marriage, you would not behave that way any way.

      Exactly - can't blame Facebook for someone's actions.

    How sneaky of these people. At least it's good that it is a good source of evidence so that the cheaters can get what's coming to them.

    One thing about Facebook you can keep it private, and really, don't post pics, but then why have it?

    Yeah, it also kills people: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/new.....d-her.html

    Facebook is not the issue, it is the disconnect it creates between what's real and what's not. But this applies to all online communities...
