Why do people choose to put their life drama on Facebook for the world to see? And why, after an argument, do they change their relationship status to "it's complicated"? 

I feel like the things going on in my personal life are not for anyone's business but myself and the other person(s) involved. Why post a status on Facebook just for the sake of starting an argument for the world to see?

Also, if my DH and I have a disagreement, I do not go on Facebook and start downing him through my status and saying how horrible I think he is. Of course our relationship is complicated at times...I don't know anyone who has a perfect relationship!

What do you ladies think? Do you ever post a status just for drama sake? Do you post when you are arguing with your DH/SO?

No. It's childish. You should deal with those kind of matters in private, not publicly.

My MIL does that. She does it when she's mad at anyone, including me. I have recently fallen into the bad habit of doing similar things, and my mom called me out on it last night. She's right. I don't need to stoop to that level, even if it does seem like that's the most effective way to communicate with my IL'S.

I don't put anything truly personal on Facebook.  Something cute one of the kids did, or bragging on a milestone the baby has met or something like that, sure, but that's it.

I get sick of the people posting every day about their health issues.  I will occasionally post if we are sick but it's not very often.  I know a lady who had a hysterectomy a week after mine.  I didn't post anything about mine or my recovery or the health issues leading up to it but this lady has posted about her hysterectomy from day 1. OMG.  I won't type out all the details of her posts but it's super annoying and it's like she tries to mention her hysterectomy in every post she can.  I also have another friend who has fibromyalgia and she posts stuff almost every day about fibro or how she's feeling.  I have fibro too and I've not once posted anything about it and very few people even know I have it.   I don't mind people saying they feel cruddy that day or  the kids having the flu or them or whatever but when it's like they are trying to get sympathy and it's a constant thing...it's just annoying.

And yes, it's super annoying when people make drama posts.  Or start their post with "Some people..."

no never... because my husband is basically a wonderful man and when I do get upset at him I know it will pass...probably before the status drops off the first page. That just get other people involved who have no business being involved.

 I don't post anything negative about DH on fb but I love it when people post their relationship problems, lol. I'm entertained even while I'm shaking my head.
