Social Media and Communication In Relationships

Saturday, July 25, 2015



 


Do not allow your relationship to become a victim of 'the social media monster'. My advice is to invest time in your relationship. Communicate and share what's on your mind, and even more importantly listen to your partner. The future of your relationship depends on it.

Marital communication is becoming notorious and getting a bad name. It’s like an attacking footballer who fights back on the field of play. The referee hears a commotion, and turns his head just in time to see his retaliation. He didn’t create the problem; he was reacting to the problem. But he’s the one who gets caught not the vicious defender, so he’s given a red card and sent off the field of play.

In the case of marital communication, everyone gangs up on him, when the truth is, on the playground of marriage, he’s just reacting to one of the other troublemakers who started the fight – in this case Facebook, BBM and you can fill the remaining gap.

For married couples who have been together for years, you’ve probably already figured out that communication in marriage is really important.  Being intentional about the way you communicate with your spouse sets a firm foundation for a solid relationship. The same rules apply when it comes to using Facebook once you’re married.  



The distractions and temptations presented by the digital world force us to work harder for healthy relationships. That is why it's essential to insist on openness and clear communication, instead of succumbing to the fantasy on your smartphone.

There is hope. We know that a leading cause of a relationship break down is the lack of communication between spouses. As a result, many are distracted by social media in search of a third person to meet their emotional and mental needs, which ultimately leads to cheating. Mutual communication and listening are the essence of any good relationship; without them separation and divorce are inevitable.

Do not allow your relationship to become a victim of 'the social media monster'. My advice is to invest time in your relationship. Communicate and share what's on your mind, and even more importantly listen to your partner. The future of your relationship depends on it.
