How might social media use lead to divorce?

Couples in New York and elsewhere have various reasons as to why they may want to seek to dissolve their marriages. There is no right or wrong reason to seek a divorce. The decision is a personal one. While there are many reasons as to why a dissolution of marriage may be sought, it is believed that social media use is now behind quite a few divorce requests.

Some may wonder, why social media? Using such accounts seems so harmless. They are great for keeping in contact with family and friends, as well as finding old and new friends.

According to a recent article, the biggest issues that social media creates in a marriage are a lack of face time, dishonesty, sharing too many personal details and relationship comparisons. Too many spouses are spending time alone, staring at screens rather than engaging with their significant others. Too many people are not willing to share the details of who they are taking to online. Others feel the need to pour out personal details for the world to see, and others spend too much time comparing their marriages to the marriages of their friends based on what information they post online.

All of these issues certainly do give couples reason to pause and re-evaluate their current situations. Some may be able to make changes in order to repair any damage that has been done. However, others may find that the marriage is simply beyond repair. Those in New York who have reached this point can seek assistance in proceeding with the divorce process. While it may not be easy to get through, it is possible to take the appropriate steps in achieving fair and balanced settlements so that both parties can move forward.
