Is this you?
You’re out having a great time over dinner laughing and joking, then you grab your phone and look at your Facebook page and everything go’s to crap.
You’re at home, you give your partner a kiss then you sit down at the computer desk and an argument starts to form.
You and your partner are having one of the worst arguments you’ve ever had and they scream that the relationship is over unless you delete your Facebook account.
I have heard many stories time and time again how Facebook is the cause of many people breaking up marriages, courtships, and committed relationships. How can Facebook be given so much power? People have been breaking up long before Facebook even was thought of. People have been cheated on, lied to, neglected, taken for granted, and disrespected long before the Internet even existed.
Now this is not to say that Facebook can’t be a problem in someone’s relationship, but to give it full credit for being the damaging piece is ridiculous. Because if a person is bent on cheating or being neglectful in the relationship, they will find another way besides Facebook.
So here you have someone that is always on Facebook and talking to the opposite sex, making friends with them and giving way too much time and attention to this social network. Their wife says “either delete your Facebook account or I’m gone.”
Deleting the Facebook account can be a step in the right direction, but it should not be the end all of the situation, because at the root of this person’s heart is where the problem lies.
Fix what’s in your heart, fix what’s in your mind, fix your way of thinking, fix your lack of boundaries, and these social networks, your place of business, going out to social events, should no longer be an issue.
So what are your thoughts? Do you think that Facebook has the power to break up marriages and committed relationships?
