Can the Internet Have a Poor Effect on Your Marriage?
Posted on Oct 1, 2012 4:25pm PDT
The modern tool of the internet really can do anything beyond our wildest
dreams, we are able to research any information we desire, about any location
or time period, we are able to shop, pay bills, find a relationship, watch
shows and movies; what can’t the internet do? While it may not be
able to teleport you to a desired location, it can give people the opportunity
to bring other places into your home, through pictures or videos and the
like. Sadly, with the ability to access to anything, marriages are being
broken because of a spouse’s addiction to pornography or even finding
new lovers on the internet.
Pornography and extramarital relationships are not the only problems that
can be caused by the internet for married couples, it also creates an
avenue for which couples can publicly shame one another in the process
of the divorce. There have been countless cases in which a spouse will
discover that their husband or wife is leaving them because of a Facebook
post, and then during the process Facebook becomes an avenue for which
the spouses will choose to speak unkindly of one another. This is not
only harming the relationship between the two married people, and possibly
soon to be divorced, but it is also going to hurt any family members who
are able to see this tension, particularly the children.
The internet is a poor choice when wanting to speak bad about your spouse
or ex, because it can cause a lot of pain and confusion when the children
see their parents acting in that way. In the event that you have chosen
to file for a divorce, technology and the internet may be a very useful
tool for you as you are fighting to receive what is rightfully yours after the
divorce or seek the custody of the children. Many cases will use the help of internet
messages to help prove the instability of a spouse to raise the children
after divorce, etc.
Ultimately, it is important to know that technology or the internet itself
is never the actual one to blame for an addiction to inappropriate materials
or even another relationship, it comes down to the person and unfortunately
if they want to have an affair it is likely that it would have happened
whether or not they had an email account. Going through a divorce can
be both a hard and sad time to experience, though in time wounds can and
will heal. If you or someone you know is considering filing for divorce,
