Is Your Phone Ruining Your Marriage? - Strong Women, Strong Love
Your phone is probably never far from you. It keeps you connected to the office, to your kids, to what's going on in the world. If you're stressed, it's there with a relaxing game or some cute puppy photos in your Instagram feed. It's your partner in daily life — and that's a problem. As helpful as our phones are, technology can also be a source of tension in a relationship.. According to one study, couples with high technology use reported more conflict and lower relationship satisfaction. The study even indicated that when one partner spends a lot of time using the phone, the other partner can feel more depressed. Another study echoes those findings. It found that people who describe their partners as dependent on their cell phones are less satisfied with their relationships.
