Divorce and Social Media

The Potential Effects of Social Media on Divorce

Be Mindful of the Things You Post on Social Media!

Did you know that the use of social media has been proven to affect the quality of a marriage? Recently, studies have been performed to demonstrate the correlation between social media and divorce rates in the U.S. Not surprisingly, as time goes on, the impact that social media can have on a couple's marriage has continued to grow. While social media may not be a direct link to problematic marriages, it has been shown that there is a connection between marriage quality and the use of social media.

Is There a Correlation Between Social Media & Quality of Marriage?

In a study published in the journal Computers in Human Behavior, it was discovered that the quality of marriage decreased between couples who used social media.

There are two theories behind the correlation:

  • Individuals experiencing problematic relationships may be relying on as social media as their support system.
  • Social networks may be used as a way of reducing uncertainty amongst individuals who are going through a divorce by providing information about an ex without actually having direct contact.
