Is Facebook causing divorces? Is flirting online considered cheating? Well these are two very interesting questions that I will discuss in this article.

I don’t personally don’t think that online flirting is considered cheating, but when the line is crossed

You sign on to your account when away from your spouse only to see an invite message from a long lost girlfriend, what do you do?

So you decide to accept, and later you are messaged by your ex and so the online relationship begins. At what point is it considered cheating and is it even considered cheating if no physical activity between you two take place.

Well according to statistics, Face book is being cited in more and more divorce proceedings. So why is this becoming an epidemic?

Is Facebook causing divorces? Well the answer is yes and below is a few reasons why this is so.

Here is Why Facebook is Quickly Creating Problems in Marriages

Ability to Meet People – Facebook has a unique twist to online dating. On most dating sites you have the tension of having to meet a total stranger. But with Facebook, it is always like you are meeting a friend of a friend that eliminates a lot of the social tension and stigma that comes along with the typical dating site.

Your initial intentions may be to simply become friends with someone, but with social interaction there is always the chance of it becoming much more than friends.

Easy to access – Facebook is everywhere. Wakeup, pick up your phone and in seconds you can be scanning your friends news feed to see what they are up to. It has literally become an obsession to many. With the ability to access the platform anywhere and anytime, spouses are tempted to use it to connect with more people and sometimes one too many.

Easy to Cover Up – With the premise of Facebook being about socializing with friends and friends of friends, it becomes very easy to cover up your interaction as, “that is just a friend from highschool”.

A lot of them really are, but the fact that Facebook is being cited in so many divorces also tells me that these connections are stretching too far and often leading to trouble in a relationship.

So is Facebook causing divorces? I don’t think we should lay all the blame on Facebook. It provides the perfect platform to facilitate cheating, but the ultimate decision still lies with the individual.
