Facebook is causing more divorces

Facebook is causing more divorces



Shin Min Daily News


More couples here appear to be getting divorced due to social networking websites.

According to statistics from a law firm based in the UK, social networking websites were attributed as a cause in 33% of divorces in 2011.

The number of divorces that cited "Facebook" as a cause has also increased by 50% in the past two years.

Local lawyer Ms Lin Li Zhu also shared with reporters that in the past two to three years, she has been seeing more divorces citing social networking websites as a cause.

She said, "It is usually the younger couples that cite such websites as a cause of divorce. This phenomenon is less common, or even quite rare with older couples."

She added, "In one possible scenario, some people begin to suspect their spouses of infidelity when they see their spouses being close to people on Facebook. This causes the worried spouse to check on the husband or wife's SMSes or even hire a private investigator."

Another lawyer, Ms Huang Kai Yun, who specialises in divorces, explained that Facebook is now another channel to gather evidence for divorce.

"I used to ask my clients about the evidence they collect in SMSes and email. Now, I also ask what they have on Facebook", said Ms Huang.

"In one case, the husband of my client told her that he was not in Singapore, but she found out later through Facebook that he had lied. The husband did not expect that his wife would check his Facebook account."

Local couples cannot legally divorce unless certain conditions are met, such as adultery, or if they have evidence to show that they can no longer live with their spouse due to certain unreasonable behaviour.

Ms Lin also points out that although some divorces are caused by social networking websites, evidence from these sites are usually not sufficient to justify a divorce.

Some things are meant to be kept as secret. Revealing them especially online can bring unnecessary issues

you already said le, she is my ex, she got no more right to be jealous just as i have no more right to be jealous when she is with another guy. although i say that, i know i will still be jealous, but what to do? i don't want to lose a friend just because of a failed relationship

i treat my ex as well as i could, so she won't have any complaints. haha. but then i am single now la.. so well..

Because to some people, Facebook is a must to them, it's like an everyday thing/ an addiction that is part of their lives.

Re: Facebook is causing more divorces

Dont use social networking sites as an excuse. if you really like your partner and want to keep ur marriage going, you will stay faithful and nth can tear both of you apart. since you are using such an excuse to end everything, your marriage = game over

Re: Facebook is causing more divorces

think temptations are now so much more easily accessible anywhere you look. in the past, you wake-up, go to work, come home, sleep. now you have the internet and tons of other means of finding out who that cute girl/guy is and making friends, that it is causing all these relationship problems.

actually no la... both sides de i also meet before. once i was almost into a relationship with a girl. but she was kinda possessive. i meet female friends for dinner also cannot. even married de female friends also cannot. end up didnt get together.

then my ex she was ok with me having dinner with other girls lor. because she trust me enough.

it's all about trust la. no reason for you to give up your friends just because you are with her. and in return i am ok with her meeting her ex or what.... mutual trust.
