A new study says that Facebook is destroying the otherwise utterly solid and incorruptible institution of marriage. The survey, done by UK legal services firm Divorce Online, found that up to a third of divorce filings contain the word “Facebook.” According to the website Smart Money:
“Affairs happen with a lightning speed on Facebook,” says K. Jason Krafsky, who authored the book “Facebook and Your Marriage” with his wife Kelli. In the real world, he says, office romances and out-of-town trysts can take months or even years to develop. “On Facebook,” he says, “they happen in just a few clicks.”
What I surmise from this is that Facebook is literally reaching through the computer, holding a gun to peoples’ heads and saying, “Have an affair, you monogamous bastard!!!!!”
Right? Because we are clearly not responsible for our own actions.
