My husband is having an affair with the stock market and I’m having an affair with my blog. Gotcha didn’t I?!? So we both have a hobby that involves the internet. He does research on stocks and I write and connect.
What’s startling is the profoundly negative effect the internet and social networking can have on a marriage. One of my friends knows a successful marriage counselor. Recently the counselor stated that 50% of her clients are being seen because of affairs over the internet. Yikes!
While the title and opening line for this post was a joke; real people are having real affairs which causes real problems and that’s no joke.
One has to wonder though, are so many of these affairs only happening because of the ease and anonymity of the internet or would these same peeps have cheated prior to the internet (which was, as a reminder, invented by Al Gore)?
What do you think?
