Less Facebook Means A Better Marriage

If you want to stay happily married ever after, scale back how much you use Facebook. People who use Facebook a lot are more likely to experience Facebook-related conflict with their romantic partner, which can lead to emotional and physical cheating, breakup and even divorce.

That’s the word from researchers at the University of Missouri School of Journalism, the University of Hawaii at Hilo and St. Mary’s University in San Antonio, who jointly conducted a study about the use of Facebook and how it affects romantic relationships.

Previous research has shown that when people who are in a romantic relationship are very involved with Facebook, they are more likely to monitor their partner’s page and comments, which can lead to feelings of jealousy.

It gets worse. Active Facebook users are also more likely to connect with  or reconnect with — former lovers, and that has the potential to lead to emotional and physical infidelity. But this only applies to couples who have been together three years or less.

This suggests that Facebook may be a threat to relationships that are not fully matured. On the other hand, participants who have been in relationships for longer than three years may not use Facebook as often, or may have more matured relationships, and therefore Facebook use may not be a threat or concern.

From a personal standpoint, I try to limit my time on the computer to daytime hours. I leave it all turned off during my evenings so I can give my family my undivided attention. I want to give them the message that’s there’s nothing online that’s more important to me than them.
