Facebook And Social Networking Causing Increase In Divorce, Lawyers “Like This”

November 9, 2010

HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) – If your status is ‘separated’ or ‘going through a divorce’ you might want to stay off Facebook. Social networking sites are causing a sharp increase in divorce and anything you say on your Facebook page or Myspace page can be held against you in court.

Facebook is an incredible resource for finding classmates, co-workers or making new friends. It’s also a way to rekindle old flames. For a lot of couples, that’s landed them in divorce court and given jilted spouses evidence of their partner’s adultery.

Sue’s* life started to unravel in October last year. She went to her home computer to log into her Facebook account. She quickly realized she was browsing her husband’s page.

“I went to his inbox and there were messages from a female talking about how she missed him and how she couldn’t wait until she saw him again,” said Sue. “Details about where they had met and things they had done.”

Sue’s husband was carrying on an affair with a woman he dated briefly in high school. The woman moved away and years later the two reconnected.
“He would wait until I went to bed and they would start chatting,” explained Sue.

Sue says the conversations included personal details about the couple’s marital problems and intimate, often graphic, on-line chats. “I could not believe the words that came out of my own husbands mouth”. It was disgusting, vulgar,” said Sue.

Obviously Sue misunderstood the difference between texting, chatting and talking. Lawyers “Like This”…
