Has the advent of smartphones made relationships brittle?

Smartphones allow interaction with all kinds of people.It is possible to exchange photos, messages, & what not with the help of these devices... Has the advent of smartphones contributed to the rising infidelity in couple relationships?


I haven't seen the statistics on infidelity rising since the advent of smart phones. But I do know some people who have caught their partners cheating by looking into their phones. So I guess technology works for all!

Of Course , many advantages and more disadvantages . But smartphones are far more invasive and demanding of our time, connecting us to the world in vastly more ways than the flip phones of yore.It didn’t matter much how much a person used their device, but how much a person needed their device did. We’re becoming so obsessed over how our lives look to others through the digital glass that we forget how significant it is to live, invest and relish in the present moment and the reality we’re in.


Humans are a nastiest breed and honestly I shudder by the thought of us making this planet this wonderful and equally as terrible at the same time.

Blame Blame!

Go Away.

Little Humans, wants to play.

We love to blame and that's as common as finding rats in a bakery. They are just there!

Usage smartphones can be in multiple ways. All depends on a person's psyche.

E.g. If my lady or guy refuses to have sex (the latter, seem unlikely but who knows) partner is not in mood?

Baam - Smartphone helps you in several ways from porn to flirty conversation and that can turn up either as an escape from a fight with your partner or a stepping stone to divert your oozing emotions at someplace that makes your heart beat faster, somesome that accepts you and makes you feel good.

Hence usage of a smartphone is good and bad just how each human is sometimes good and sometimes absolutely unbearable.
