Married to Social Media

I’m officially convinced that marriages from the 80’s and back had it much easier than marriages of today. Sure, they had their issues — but nothing in comparison to what occurs now. Marriages today have way too many distractions. You know what one of the biggest distractions is?

Social media.

Don’t believe me?

Practically anywhere you go, you’ll see couples (especially under 40 years old) barely interacting with each other. Instead, they’re interacting with social media. Restaurants, parks, malls, beaches, home — anywhere a couple goes to hang out or go on a date — you’ll surely find at least a few of them disengaged with each other and hyper-engaged with social media.

Wake-up call people:

You’re not married to social media. You’re married to your spouse.

It’s time to stop giving so much time to social media and start giving that time to your spouse. Your partner deserves your time, not social media. Think of the things you could be doing with your spouse, instead of being on social media 24/7:

  • Talking
  • Making each other laugh
  • Making out/sex (not in public of course)!
  • Creating something together
  • Planning your future
  • Playing games
  • The list is practically endless…

Please, don’t act like you’re married to social media (by giving it all your time). Instead, engage with the person you’re really married to (your spouse)!

Challenge: The next time you and your spouse are together, try to resist the urge to get on social media. Connect with your spouse instead!
