How social media addiction may affect a relationship

Posted by in Couples Therapy | 0 comments

Couples who engage in social media platforms for a large portion of time could unknowingly be harming their relationship.

A published study observed that couples who spend a lot of time on Facebook tend to fight more than couples who don’t use Facebook very often. Choosing to be on the computer over spending time with your partner could make your partner feel like less of a priority.

Relationships are profoundly affected by the quality of communication. It is important for partners to spend more time offline in order to strengthen their relationship.

The rise in social media popularity has caused many relationship to suffer. If you and your partner need counseling in order to start communicating more effectively a relationship counselor can offer the necessary resources.
