Comment : I suppose that the 'free' part does make it easier, but making it paid is hardly going to stop people from communicating. For instance, about 15 years back when my wife and I were sort of in the budding stages of our relationship, we've spent hours talking on the phone (and it was not cheap!). So I suppose, it really comes down to if you're 'committed' to the relationship or not. I digress slightly, but yes, perhaps if it was not free - the opportunities for pre/extra0marital relationships would be far lesser.

Most affairs - pre or extra-marital - these days start with long chats. Just wondering, if whatsapp, messenger, twitter etc were not free, would we talk, connect, fight, argue or flirt so much?

Comment : You're spot on, Vinodini. Every relationship is different - and I know that sometimes, things just don't work out. and that's okay too. I just hate the fact that everyone tries to paint a picture of a perfect marriage when things may not be so 'picture perfect' beneath the surface.
