“A lot of married people — about 80 percent in the process of a divorce – are using a social network such as Facebook to cheat,” says a survey of divorce attorneys.
Although the divorce attorneys agreed Facebook is cited in 20 percent of all divorces, about 80 percent are using some kind of social media to make assignations or communicate with lovers, the New York Daily News reported.
I use Facebook and am not calling for a boycott on Facebook like this pastor did.
We want to help people. We want to help marriages. We are about awareness, prevention and recovery.
I have 5 friends that have all experienced unfaithfulness in this past year in their marriages. All of these relationships were started or rekindled on Facebook.
Is facebook to blame? No.
Does facebook connect or often times reconnect us with people from the past? Yes.
I started thinking about doing a website to help people that are going through this or have gone through this. I bought a few different domains like marriagekiller.com and facebookisthenewporn.com and a few others. I then got in touch with a guy named Ken who started facebookcheating.com and decided this would be the best scenario to build on what he has started. We have relaunched the site and wanted to pass it on to all of you. We will be posting information, stories and so much more over there. If you have a story related with this and want to share that or be apart of the site contact [email protected]
Below is a letter from Ken.
As many of you know, I lost my marriage years back and started this site to help others who were going through similar situations or maybe to prevent this from happening in someones life.
The site has received a lot of attention and the latest studies show that Facebook is to blame for more then 1 in 5 marriages falling apart. I’ve really decided to move on and couldn’t come to make a video or write another post on this site. I need to move on with my life and while this site has become a huge help for many I need to start a new chapter in my life.
The day I decided I had to move on, I was contacted by Craig Gross from XXXchurch.com. He was working on a similar site due to seeing so many marriages falling apart because of Facebook and reached out to me about my plans for the site. I had several offers to buy the site from a lot of people that I really could not trust that would take this further then I could. Most of these companies that wanted the site would just end up spamming the crap out of all of you.
I looked into what Craig has accomplished over the last 10 years with XXXchurch and think he and his team can do an excellent job taking this site to a whole new level. So, I am turning this site over to them and wishing you all the best in your relationships.
