Is Facebook fracturing marriages?
According to Bloomberg News, the overall divorce rate in the U.S. has declined over the past 20 years, but there seems to be an increase of divorcees who are aged 50 and over. And you won’t believe who’s to blame – Facebook.
Aside from the normal variety of causes, such as empty nests and midlife crises, baby boomers are now dealing with an altered technological landscape that allows them to reconnect with a long-lost love, leading to “accidental affairs”. More than 80 percent of divorce attorneys recently surveyed by the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers said that in the past few years they have witnessed “an increase in the number of divorce cases using social networking evidence.”
