Social media helps expedite divorces


Some divorce lawyers are saying their clients blame social media for the decline of their marriage.

attorney said social media sure isn't helping improve a struggling marriage, but could help lead to divorce. Family law attorney Lené Alley DeRudder said social media sure isn't helping improve a struggling marriage, but could help lead to divorce.

"It can magnify issues and sort of expedite that thought of divorce," said Alley DeRudder. "When you're going through a hard time, it could make you get to that point that you're like, 'I just want to start over, I want to go do something different'."

She said the fairy tale lives on social media can effect not just teens, but adults' psyche.

"As adults we're seeing the same thing and it makes us feel like 'what's wrong with our marriage, what's wrong with our life, why haven't we achieved that?'," said Alley DeRudder.

It might be hard to see all the first day of school photos, if a couple cannot have children.

If couples are financially struggling--it's no picnic seeing other's vacations and luxury items.

Plus, social media connects people who maybe shouldn't be connecting.

At the same time, social media creates an even bigger disconnect when one partner is posting something that the significant other isn’t involved in.

Alley DeRudder said remind yourself it's all perception and any image you want can be portrayed on social media.

She added all the social media stuff will not support remedy, reconciling or repairing a marriage.
