#Internet

According to the Mail Online, a new survey by the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers indicates that one in five divorces involves using social media for evidence of cheating. Apparently, Facebook is by far the biggest offender because it allows people to get in touch with old flames they may not have heard from in years.

However, marriage counsellor Terry Real says that Facebook is not really to blame. Terry thinks people go on Facebook to create a fantasy life and escape the monotonous, everyday drudgery.

There is nothing more seductive that the 'one that got away' fantasy that's always better than someone who is up to her eyeballs in bills.

Before it was email, then before that it was the phone. The problem is not Facebook, it is the loss of love in your marriage.
