Many feel that divorce rate higher for Internet Savvy people with following valid reasons

1) Chat rooms and sites which reunite friends make it easier for unhappy husbands or wives to meet other people and possibly go on to have an affair.
2) They work long hours (even at home) without giving enough time for family affairs.

What is opinion about it? Do you think it can be true?

who is this "many"?

Sounds like your typical FUD piece by someone who can't get "it" and blames that on his internet addiction.

Get away from those porn sites and into a bar.

Great alternative, that. ^ :rolleyes:

Anyway, I do not know if divorce is higher among those who take advantage of valid online resources, but it does seem certain that the Internet provides a open channel to many areas (Pornography, illicit online relationships). It may up the odds of the reasons for a divorce in the end (if discovered) but the foundation for the divorce was probably already there, lurking and waiting to be activated. The Internet is only one other forum for such behavior.

I have been married once and am now divorced due to similar, related areas as discussed in this thread (on my ex-spouse's behalf-- cheating, forming an online relationship behind my back which grew into a realtime affair). Does this make me untrusting of the Internet? No, not really, only much more choosey and particular about the woman I may date. You cannot always be sure of someone's inability to be true in a comitted relationship, but it does not really take long to get a general "feel" for the individual and their morality. I missed all the signs with my ex-wife. I guess I am much too trusting.

i believe its the fact that one can be more attacthed to devoting themselves to thier PC than thier partner - after all, pcs dont nag or complain or want you to buy expensive things (well, actually they do...)

I think it's just another scapegoat for people so they don't have to take responsibility for themselves...

I got my PC a few partners so they can talk when I'm not home to keep her company...

I agree with this.

I also think that IF the divorce rate is higher among Internet savvy individuals, the marriage rate probably is, too. It's just as easy for a married person to have an affair online as it is for a single person to find a mate online.

Both having different expectations may be. One person said, "less time I spend working the less money I make and the less my wife gets to spend which makes my wife more upset. But the more time I work the more money I make and the more my wife is upset because of the lack of time I spend with her" :).

There can be many factors for a divorce but being Internet savvy may be adding one more stronger factor to it.

maybe the contrary:

internet savvy people ::

always find new things to do or talk about and keep marriage exciting
make good money
can work from home and spare a few free minutes also in day time
they don't get in touch a lot with other people in real time
have an option if the partner is in a bad mood instead of reacting on it and letting it explode

I agree - plus they have all of the sex tips in the world at their fingertips.

Of course, practicing them while calling up the next website on your laptop may be cumbersome... :eek:
