Facebook And Your Relationship: Do They Go Together?

I’ll be the first to admit that sometimes women can be a bit petty when it comes to men, especially in the world of cyberspace. For example, some of us will do little ‘katty’ things such as posting something on someone’s page or wall to insinuate that there is something going on when there really isn’t. Facebook, although it has gone through extreme measures to ensure privacy, has been notorious for breaking up relationships and marriages. Sometimes the most innocent comment can be taken the wrong way, and most of us women know that! One of my friends recently saw where an old high school friend of her husbands posted on his page, “It was nice being with you the other night.” Hmmm….that comment could be taken a number of ways, most of them the wrong way. Now, mind you, this woman knew the guy was married. It turns out that a bunch of friends from high school got together and hung out one night, including the female. So was it really necessary to disrespect this man’s wife and marriage by insinuating that she had spent the evening with her husband? Wasn’t there another way she could have made that statement? Needless to say, a bunch of others from the same get-together had to clarify what was really meant before my friend let her husband off of the hook. Then, she politely had her husband delete the lady as a friend and blocked her from his page.

We must also keep in mind that most married couples have full access to each others Facebook accounts. The hook-up you may be trying to arrange with someone’s husband or wife may be intercepted by their spouse. Then there is the other issue with the boyfriend or girlfriend who claims to be extremely busy, too busy to even talk on the phone, but has time to post their status and comment on others status on Facebook. What does this say about the state of your relationship? Is Facebook really more of a priority to this person than you are? These are questions that are definitely worth asking your significant other in this case. So, is it worth risking your relationship just to have a Facebook account? Or would it simply be an issue of trust? If you trust your significant other completely, then the Facebook account is no big deal. But, ladies let’s stop with the pettiness. You wouldn’t want another female doing it to you if the shoe were on the other foot.
