1 in 5 divorces filed now state Facebook as being a contributing factor - surprised?

MSN has an article today about the rise of divorces citing Facebook as a source of cheating, flirty texts, inappropriate messages. So it's not only connecting people, it's also disconnecting. You believe the statistics cited?

  • Facebook is just another easy excuse...like affairs, it's a symptom, NOT the problem

  • If the divorce happened in the first place then it wasnt gonna last anyways, with or without Facebook.

  • Not surprised but its been happening long before FB. My ex cheated on me with someone he met in Yahoo Chat. When it comes down to it it is the person doing the cheating and the fact they are cheaters. People cheated long before the internet, and will now too. I dont blame FB. I blame the cheater.

  • I agree with @SabrenaLeigh If someone is going to cheat, its going to happen, even without facebook. I'm not suprised though.

    I wouldn't- the reason for that is that all of my friends are over 500 miles away from me and have been the last 7 or so years. Without FB-I'm sure I would be a depressed alcoholic mess. I'm SO thankful that it came along- I am doing a lot better now that I have that

  • Facebook, MySpace, and all those other websites for socialization are a SYMPTOM of the issue in a marriage. They are certainly not the cause of a marriage's downfall. They are simply a tool and it's the user's choice in how they choose to use that tool.
