Social Media and Divorce
Our increased usage of and dependence on social media technology has taken its toll on many relationships. In fact, more and more marriages are ending because of some kind of social media disagreement. According to a survey conducted by Divorce-Online UK, nearly a third of divorces are related to social media.
At the Law Office of Andrew A. Bestafka, Esq., we know that whatever the cause of your divorce, Monmouth County residents have the right to protect their own interests in divorce, and to seek the legal help that can make this protection easier. If social media has contributed to your divorce, make sure you know what your rights are and that your interests are protected.
How Social Media Can Cause Divorce
Many people argue that social media doesn’t break up relationships; that people do. However, social media can act as the catalyst in many marriages, amplifying already existing problems. Some ways that social media can contribute to a divorce:
- An extramarital affair occurring through social media
- Publicly abusing your spouse on social media
- Posting negative things or private information on social media
- “Spying” on your spouse
These actions could easily lead to disagreements in your marriage which could then, in turn, cause both parties to want to seek a divorce.
