Social Media and Divorce

Today, a large percentage of individuals as well as businesses use social media. In fact, so much so that social media use has become an essential part of our daily lives. And although social media helps establish and maintain social connections, it can also be the catalyst of a severed relationship. As such, social media can sometimes come in-between the relationship of a married couple and make their marriage increasingly difficult.

Social media has been tied to divorce in various instances, often due to any resulting lost emotional contact. If social media has led to irreparable troubles in your marriage, along with any other circumstances, divorce can sometimes – but not always – be the wisest solution.

Social Media’s Ties to Divorce

Though social media can be a way to connect people across vast spaces, it can also create a disconnect between those living in the same house. It can:

  • Create emotional withdrawal
  • Become addicting
  • Allow for extramarital affairs
  • Lead to dishonesty / secretiveness

Any of these potential results of social media use can a put strain on any relationship. If you have found yourself in a similar position in the Raleigh area, an experienced divorce attorney at Marshall & Taylor PLLC may be able to help you leap through any legal obstacles surrounding the divorce process.
