The Rise of Facebook and Divorces / Dissolution of Marriage
Updated: Oct 17
Facebook has often been cited in the media for the cause of divorces. A recent article says that Facebook is cited in many divorce proceedings. Social networking sites help us to keep in touch with friends and family, plan social events, and share photos. But there is a downside to all of this connectivity. It could be that the ability to reconnect or flirt with other people causes the breakup, or that it is a sign of the trouble already in the relationship. Because divorce can be costly and emotional, there is a lot of interest in finding ways to reduce the divorce rate. According to the article, not too long ago, the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers issued a press release saying that two thirds of America’s divorce lawyers reported that Facebook was the country’s top source of online divorce evidence. This doesn’t mean that Facebook is the cause of divorce; instead it means that it’s a good source of evidence. According to the article, it cited that Loyola researchers have found that Facebook can make it much easier for people to reconnect with old flames and find potential new ones. It’s easy to find ex-boyfriends or ex-girlfriends on and reconnect with an old flame.
