Does Facebook Wreck Marriages?

Does social media create serious relationship problems?

A new survey out of the U.K. found that more than a third of divorce filings last year contained the word Facebook [1], according to Divorce Online, a  legal services firm. 

“Affairs happen with a lightning speed on Facebook,” K. Jason Krafsky, who co-authored Facebook and Your Marriage with wife Kelli, told SmartMoney [2].

“It puts temptation in the path of people who would never in a million years risk having an affair.”

Research revealed that 80 percent of U.S. divorce lawyers claim to have seen an increase in the number of separation cases using social networking.

“I see Facebook issues breaking up marriages all the time,” divorce attorney, Gary Traystman told the publication.

What do you think? Do you know any couples who have split up because of Facebook?
