Indian Bride Of Two Months Files For Divorce Because Her Husband Didn’t Update His Facebook Relationship Status To “Married”
Daily Mail: An Indian woman is filing for divorce after her husband failed to change his relationship status to married on social network site Facebook. The 28-year-old has already approached the family court seeking divorce saying that she can not trust him after her failed to announce their marriage on the website. The Telugu couple had an arranged marriage just two months ago and the case was filed in the jurisdiction of an Aurangabad court where the women is thought to live.
According to the Deccan Chronicle her husband told the court that he had forgotten to update his status, but the judge has given the two parties six months to undergo counselling. Speaking to the Indian based newspaper High Court advocate Mr Subhash said, ‘I came to know of the above incident from the magistrate in the Aurangabad court. Although there are thought to be few cases whereby the failure to change a status of a relationship has caused a breakdown Facebook is increasingly being used as a source of evidence in divorce cases, according to lawyers.
The social networking site was cited as a reason for a third of divorces last year in which unreasonable behaviour was a factor, according to law firm Divorce-Online.The firm said it had seen a 50 per cent jump in the number of behaviour-based divorce petitions that contained the word ‘Facebook’ in the past two years.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.’Thirty-three per cent of the 5,000 behaviour petitions filed with the firm in the past year mentioned the site. The most common reasons for Facebook causing problems in relationships were a spouse finding flirty messages, photos of their partner at a party they did not know about or with someone they should not have been with.
Is there anything more complicated than trying to maintain a relationship with an insecure person with Facebook in the middle??? Seriously, all up in your business if you aren’t commenting enough on their wall posts or saying how much you love them every day on Facebook for everyone else to see, make fun of, and block you for. Not to mention the dreaded Relationship Status. Guys trying to be slick by hiding it, not ever setting it, etc. Girls trying to hide being in a relationship by instead saying they are married to their BFF instead. All kinds of BS going on with Facebook. Oh, and don’t even get me started (AGAIN) on those couples who are so insecure and jealous that they ONLY have a single joint facebook account.
Sure Facebook has made it MUCH easier to get laid and hookup these days. But it’s made it super hard on relationships. Lawyers subpoenaing Facebook statuses etc. Facebook straight fucking shit up in relationships left and right. Best thing to do: Pretend like you don’t have one! Just say you don’t have one, and make sure you block the shit out of their account and all their friends. Period.
