Facebook kills a third of marriages

Written by Nick Farell



Humanity really is shallow


A UK lawfirm claims that Facebook is responsible for causing a third of divorces in the UK.

Divorce-Online has noticed that the social notworking site is being named a source for evidence in more divorce cases. There is a 50 per cent jump in the number of ‘behaviour-based’ divorce petitions including the term Facebook being filed in the last two years. The firm also said that at least a third of the 5,000 petitions filed in 2011 mentioned Facebook.

In a statement Mark Keenan, managing director of Divorce-Online said that while Facebook has become the primary method for communicating with friends for many people.

“People contact ex-partners and the messages start as innocent, but lead to trouble. If someone wants to have an affair or flirt with the opposite sex then it's the easiest place to do it," he said.

We are not sure how he has real affair but from our experience you have to be in the same room and Mr and Mrs Genitals have to be involved. Unless you are like my psychopathic ex-girlfriend who thought flirting was the same as going through at least three pages of the Karma Sutra and chatting to a member of the opposite sex online was two timing.

Like it, believe it, or not, Romance arrives only after Marriage, a true marriage that is, the one whose aim is to procreate in order that all parties might witness the meaning of the intertwining of the generations where the duty of Progeny is to spiritually cleanse their Elders at their own expense with the Elders providing shelter and guidance during Progeny’s learning phase when Within/Reality/Realisation is morphing into Without/Relativity/Thoughts - all at the spiritual and therefore mostly unseen level. Divorce within “Westernised”/”Democratised” marriages are designed to fail should there be no artificial barriers whereas marriages within “Eastern”/Collectivised cultures are designed to succeed should there be no artificial barriers. A Simplicity which Eludes.

Coolant, I have no idea what you're trying to say here, but it sounds an awful lot like pure dreck.

There are a few problems with all social networking sites that make relationships even more harder to sustain in these hard times. I don't think the problem is just these sites. I think great deal of the problems in relationships stem from the society in general. A coin always has a flip side. I can only say that social networking sites definitely don't help staying in a relationship, but that, on the other hand, depends on how one's using it; for what purpose? Some people are just natural born cheaters, and of course they would use it to cheat on their partner, and such sites help them in doing that a great deal. In conclusion I would say that yes - in general such sites don't help. They do help in creating new relationships, though.

Yeah well easternised marraiges are also mostly forced upon people and arranged by other people, and if you are not compatible with each other then it's ok for the men to beat the living crap out of their wives, until things are ok, and if that fails, sell the wife for a donkey, or better yet find another 14yo girl whose father will sell her for a donkey, and if all else fails, honour massacre the lot and start afresh
