It's not that it never happened before Facebook. It's just that's easier to get caught off-base.

re: #1 andres

Good point. Is it really that facebook makes it easier to have an affair or is it just that facebook makes it easier for idiots having an affair to get caught? Maybe both?

The later is the impression I got from the link. But this quote

The social network is different from most social networks or dating sites in that it both re-connects old flames and allows people to “friend” someone they may only met once in passing. “It puts temptation in the path of people who would never in a million years risk having an affair,” he says. Facebook declined to comment.

pisses me off. Why? Because I question how stable the marriage was in the first place if "friending" someone was all it took to be tempted. ... Nah! It has to be that evil newfangled technology!

And remember who is saying this. I don't use facebook. I cannot trust it at all. And I am not interested in defending it. Its just that I can't stand listening to people throwing around blame for their own bad decisions. This wasn't a matter of luck like one's financial status. They simply made stupid mistakes, whether it was screwing around like Tiger Woods or simply rushing into marriage with the wrong person in the first place. Either way, its strictly their own damn fault. Anyone who blames social media for this is a f***ing moron.

And to hell with what divorce lawyers say. Most of them are slimy enough that I wouldn't listen to them if they were simply offering the time of day.

I'd say both, leaning more on the second: Facebook makes it "easier" to connect with more people, but it's much, much easier to get trapped in the act.

That is K. Jason Krafsky, author of "Facebook and Your Marriage", a religious book. I don't expect him to know squat of the intersection between technology and life beyond throwing Holy Water to any electronic he might see...

And you are right. Personal responsibility and all that.

[insert divorce lawyer joke here]

Why would divorce lawyers complain? They're the ones benefitting the most from it!
