If there’s one thing I’m good at it’s using Facebook. 🙂 Right Rich? It’s my online time-waster of choice. Rich and I have very different taste in online time-wasters and mutually feel the other’s choice is a waste of time. 🙂
So, when I came across this article 3 Ways Facebook is Killing Your Marriage from Nurturing Marriage, I gave it a page view. The first of their points hit close to home.
“Before you know it, you realize you’ve wasted your entire evening staring at a screen INSTEAD of at your gorgeous spouse.”
Hate it when that happens. Their other two points – the danger of keeping track of old “friends”/members of the opposite sex – can be totally destructive to a marriage. I mean 15 years ago, when you ended a relationship and ended contact- that was it. Now, you can always see what they look like, what they’re doing and who they’re with FOREVER! Lame. Don’t go down that path.
So, this week let’s keep our Facebook/social media usage in check.
