By now, we’ve all heard that Facebook pretty much causes everyone to get divorced. Or something like that. And it’s not hard to believe, when you think about it. In the olden days, if you wanted to catch your spouse cheating, you had to do a lot of legwork. Those were the days of sitting in the dark in a parked car, waiting for your husband to emerge from a local motel with lipstick on his collar and an off-kilter necktie. You had to look for real clues. Break into a briefcase or two. Or wait for them to really slip up.
Nowadays, you don’t even have to leave the comfort of your almost broken home! Just wait for your spouse to fall asleep and then go bananas on their computer! Email, internet history, Facebook, Amazon orders, whatever! The thing is, you don’t even have to wait around for them to cheat on you. Facebook spying really lets you nip it in the bud. Oh, you “poked” your high school girlfriend? I’M CALLING A LAWYER.
Anyway, the point is, Facebook is, indeed, a slippery slope for marriages on the rocks. But did you know that it’s not the only website that is ruining our lives? We did some of our own research here at EGD and found a few other websites commonly cited in divorce proceedings.
