How To Catch Infidelity On The Internet
Is making friends on social networking sites influencing how we create real relationships in real timeand maybe the wrong kind of relationships? Between Facebook, Twitter, MySpace and other networking social websites, couples today may be cheating on the internet without ever leaving their home.
For the first time in history, we can cheat on our spouse sitting next to them in bed. With laptops, iPhones,and Blackberries, it is possible to have an intimate relationship online as our spouse sleeps unknowingly on the next pillow.
One recent study says that 66% of divorces today are caused by Facebook and social networking sites. Eighty-one percent of divorce attorneys say that over the last five years there has been a significantly higher evidence of social networking sites as the cause of divorce, according to the American Association of Matrimonial Lawyers.
The Internet is an easily accessible way to find outside partners. Hooking up with friends from the past or new"friends"may lead to problematic behaviors like emotional affairs or sexual interaction online. It is easy to believe that relationships on-line may not affect a marriage or committed partnership because they are not real. However, emotional connection is sometimes easier to create online than inone another's presence Revealing private thoughts and secrets to each other via email or on Facebook may lead to a false sense of intimacy. In-person infidelity may be the next step.
