Apparently, about one in 10 couples who go to Relate for marriage counselling, blame the Internet for the breakdown in their relationship.
The report goes on to say that: “Both men and women complain of becoming Internet "widows" as their partners spend hours at the computer downloading software or looking at pornography.”
Does spending too much time online/ chatting/ playing games eat into our family’s time?
Are we indulging in a form of cybercheating if we spend a lot of time chatting with people of the opposite sex, when there are other things to be done? Or should we spend that extra time with our partners, building our personal relationships instead?
Where does one draw the line?
Should we be more careful as to how we spend our time online?
What do you think?
Would your relationship suffer if you found your partner/ spouse was spending too much time online? Time that you wanted to spend with him/ her?
Do you know anyone who has personally gone through a relationship breakdown because of this reason?
