Divorce: "My wife is addicted to Facebook"

Posted by William H. Sherman | Nov 08, 2015 | 0 Comments

With the prevalence of social media today, we are seeing many marriages negatively impacted by websites like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. It is not uncommon for a spouse to become obsessed with posting pictures and in effect keeping a public diary of their life on social media sites. We have handled cases where a spouse loses interest in the relationship because they are too busy in their online world. We’ve had cases where a spouse will “over share” information and that will cause the other spouse to be resentful and offended by what was posted. Nothing you described is new to us. But before proceeding with the divorce you need to speak with your wife about the problem. Do your best to make her understand, from your point of view and the points of view of the children, what affect her online activities are having. If she doesn’t change, then it seems that divorce is inevitable. If you do proceed with a divorce, then you will both have to address issues like child custody, child support and, potentially, alimony.

What our clients say...

“I just wanted to write to say that I feel so lucky to have chosen the Sherman Law Group as my attorneys. I was going through such a very difficult legal situation. It was emotionally charged and draining. But Valerie Sherman and Bill Sherman were so supportive, hardworking and helpful. I loved that the firm was always updating me and letting me know what was going on in my case. You always returned my calls and emails. Thank you all for making it work out great for me.”
