Out of all divorce statistics, there is only one that is completely accurate: 100 percent of all divorces start with a marriage. Still, this doesn’t mean that the factors that affect separation aren’t drawing keen interest of researchers worldwide. For example, it is known that the first marriage is the one least likely to end in divorce, while the chances for this grow with every next marriage. Furthermore, it is known that 20 to 24 year olds are most likely those getting divorced, while this seldom happens to people from 35 to 40. On the other hand, there is some other relevant data available, that might seem a bit more unorthodox. Did you know that there are some suspicions that Twitter users are more prone to divorce? Here are some interesting facts about this phenomenon.
One of the greatest things about Twitter is that it gives an opportunity for countless number of ‘keyboard warriors’ to state their opinions on every possible topic. Whenever a terrorist attack, anti-government protest or even a celebrity gossip appears on social media, these people feel the urge to give the entire world a piece of their mind. This, however, means that they get entangled in high politics, global economics and morality issues they would probably never encounter in real life, under any circumstances. Because of this, it is highly likely that people active on Twitter will engage in arguments they would never come across in any other circumstances.
Digital into Real
The most important feature needed for any relationship to survive is patience. What this means is that even when you are agitated the most you need to keep your wits about you. Unfortunately, Twitter community can sometimes be quite vexing. Trolls are everywhere and even if they are not annoying you on purpose, other people can really push you over the edge. Now, in an ideal world, it would be possible to just put your laptop down and go on with your life, but sadly this is not always possible. When something happens to you in the office, you are bound to bring that back home. Pretty much the same happens with transition from digital to real.
Social Media and Modern Marriage
No matter what we wanted to believe, social media can have a negative impact on a marriage. Of course, it would be ludicrous to claim that social media can ruin your matrimony on its own, but no one denies that it can cause a lot of issues. Just imagine what a like from an ex-girlfriend/boyfriend can do to a marriage which is already on shaky grounds, not to mention an inbox message or a thing as harmless as a friend request. Finally, there are numerous dating sites that make affairs much easier, but also much simpler to debunk.
Finally, what are the odds that a Twitter user doesn’t practice other social networks as well. There is a great probability that they also have a Facebook and an Instagram account, but this is just a beginning. Today, more people meet online then they ever did in the past and there is a statistic that couples who meet online have a much greater chance of divorcing. Reasons behind this are numerous. Same as the aforementioned ‘keyboard warriors’ wouldn’t have the courage of expressing their thoughts in person, the anonymity of dating sites gives people an opportunity to present themselves in better light.
Another reason why this is so is the ease with which these people find their match. They did not have to go through all the effort that offline dating and getting to know each other brings, which is why they aren’t reluctant to get back out there into the dating world. All they need to do after the divorce is go back to the website and look for someone else. Also, seeing how there is a website providing California Divorce Papers, even getting a divorce becomes much easier. When put together, all of this gives people much more confidence to admit they have made a mistake and look for a way out.
Guns don’t kill people, people do. The same thing goes for social media. It would be absurd to claim that social media can ruin your marriage or even make it flourish. Same as guns, social media can help you do the aforementioned much easier and in a more depersonalized manner (as much as this is possible). Because of this, it wouldn’t be a long shot to claim that Twitter users are indeed more prone to divorce than other people.
