As obvious it may seem but the Daily Mail reported that the Social networking website Facebook has been blamed for one-third of divorces across the world.
The Divorce-online law firm said that evidence on Facebook was freqeuntly being presented and cited as a reason for divorce and the number amounted to almost one third of all divorces in the world!
The firm said it has seen a 50 per cent jump in the number of "behaviour-based" divorce petitions that contained the word "Facebook" over the past two years. At least 33 per cent of the 5,000 petitions filed with the firm in the past year mentioned the website.
Mark Keenan, managing director of Divorce-Online said, "Facebook has become the primary method for communicating with friends for many people. People contact ex-partners and the messages start as innocent, but lead to trouble. If someone wants to have an affair or flirt with the opposite sex then it's the easiest place to do it".
Anne-Marie Hutchinson, at Dawson Cornwell Solicitors, said: "If you are keeping things from your partner, Facebook makes it so much easier for them to find out."
Keenan said he has warned his clients to keep off Facebook while going through divorce proceedings.
So my new year resolution – stay off of Facebook? Well I am doing naughty am I? 😉
