    I think that technology can have a negitive effort on marriage b/c its easier to catch a cheater if there is an electronic trail. Men and women both use technology to chat with other people, so in the age of call logs on cells, spy software on computers, and even car GPS, its much easier to find out everything your partner wanted to keep private

    The technology can add to an existing problem.
    Depends on the couples beliefs and value of their marriage. Divorce is not to common in my culture. It has only been within recent years tht we see an increase.

    i say no because you can look at all those marriages that happen BECAUSE of technology.

    From personal experience----My husband and I played online games together for the first few years of our marriage. I called it our best years. Me killing him with my mad low ping skillz.
    I think we worked through our early marriage issues through the computer. hehe.

    I'm pretty sure we'll see a crackberry.com marriage happen in the future.

    Good point Baroness. Hadn't considered that angle.
    My wife has no interest in technology at all. She knows I'm kind of a gadget nut but it amuses her more than anything.

    I believe in this myself. The only solution is to find a mater that is into it as well.

    I got my g/f a berry, which is the first step. She said to me today, "you going on crackberry?" as she went to class.

    My husband & I can't complain about the crackberries because we both understand! We are equally addicted!

    So if your spouse has issues ... get him/her one!!!!!!!

    In the evenings you can usually find my husband and I in the living room with our laptops, or sitting on the couch, me with my berry and him with his iphone. When we find cool stuff we share it with each other. It's more interactive than couples that watch t.v. together or couples that read together. So no, I don't think it hurts a marriage if both parties "get" it.

    Its hard to really say..
    You can make the arguement that having such easy access to other women/men via the internet makes it easier to cheat..
    But someone mightve made the same arguement about the telephone..
    Or that when the tv was invented u got to see more of what was out there.

    Plus there's other factors that lead to divorce besides cheating that have nothing to do with technology.

    i think it's different when both people enjoy gadgets or at least have an understanding.

    otherwise, it could be bad news.

    I think technology can intensify existing issues. But, if using new technology causes issues, then, then buy your spouse one: my wife has her own "laptop" and her own "curve". She does her own thing.......and I'm free to feed my addiction on here
