It is true that now social media has become so popular all over the world, it is much easier to see what your friends and family are up to. Sometimes this causes people to feel they need to keep up appearances and post updates on the activities they are doing, where they are going on holiday and good news regarding their careers or their children's education etc. This can cause a big strain on a family and a marriage if one party or both parties feel that they need to continue to 'brag' on social media that their lifestyle is amazing. The below article states that Solicitors in the UK are finding it more common that a marriage breaks down because people are concentrating on appearing to everyone else that they have a wonderful life and forget to actually enjoy married and family life with their loved ones.
But in the age of social media, when Facebook timelines have become a parade of other people’s smiling babies, idyllic holidays, culinary miracles, marathon times or stellar career moves, those determined to equal or outdo their peers face a herculean task. Now divorce lawyers say the trend for so-called “Facebragging” – using social media to show off under the guise of "sharing" news – is even helping fuel marital breakups as more couples succumb to pressure to live up to unrealistic expectations.
