Cheating on Facebook is the new tawdry cliché

Filed under: News,pop culture — posted by Mia @ 10:48 am

Oh noes! Flirty messages from old flames are troubling enough to current spouses, but for some married people, the temptation of having all your old flames just a click away may be too much. Divorce attorneys are reporting now that at least 1 in 5 divorce petitions cite Facebook as proof of an affair or inappropriate behavior.

We get emails from people worried about IM and text messages from exes, which certainly isn’t new, so as easy as Facebook makes it to reconnect with old flames, it’s no surprise that those inclined to stray are finding it easier to do so with more people, more often.

“The most common reason seemed to be people having inappropriate sexual chats with people they were not supposed to,” says Mark Keenan, Managing Director of Divorce-Online, in the Telegraph UK article reporting these findings.

Some cheaters are flaunting their misbehavior, and even informing their jilted spouse of their impending divorce by updating their relationship status.

While I believe that it’s possible to be platonic, mutually respectful friends with exes, I can also empathize with those who really kinda hate Facebook. Hate how ghosts of nightmares past seem to come back from the grave complete with slutty profile picture and a comment for everything that’s said and done, and how “it’s just Facebook, it doesn’t matter” starts to sound pretty weak when every word has an audience of hundreds or thousands.

  5. There are WAY more sites out there beyond Facebook. Some that outright encourage people to cheat – like one with a tag line “Life’s short, have an affair”. Personally, I think it’s always best to know what’s going on. If you suspect something, find out for sure. There are ways to find out. Check out my site if you’re interested (click my name).

  6. I think if you are inclined to look around and even cheat, facebook just makes it easier. I’m sure infidelity didn’t start online.

  7. If someone is looking around online you can be sure they are going to do something inapproproate in real life sooner or later. The temptation is often too great to ignore…
