Last night, I decided to read my latest edition of Upscale magazine. And 2/3of the way thru the magazine (pg. 79) I land on "Love & Marriage – In these techno-times, are you really committing adultery if it’s only online"? Hmmmmm…
So, the article discusses an LA couple scheduled to be wed in a few weeks. And the fiancée came home one night to find her fiancé asleep with his cell phone crouched in his hand. The fiancée goes on to say, “His work cell phone was on the night stand, where it always is… But his personal cell phone was physically in the bed with him… Why on earth would he fall asleep in bed on the phone?”
“The fiancée’s senses were tingling. She thought about waking him up and confronting him. Instead, she slipped the phone out of his hand, went into the bathroom and checked his text messages.”
“He’s been sending sexy text messages to a coworker for months… We’re getting married in two weeks. And he’s sex-texting a coworker?!”
So, in the cyberage is this what we have to contend with?
I’m a firm believer of how you go into a marriage sets the bar for a marriage.
I don’t know if the couple underwent marriage counseling? But if they hadn’t should they call of the wedding? Should she continue with the specter of doubt, knowing the behavior can become an abomination?
The article goes on to say, “We live in a new world. And the days of affairs taking place in motels and restaurants on the other side of town are over. Adultery can happen with nothing but the constant motion of thumbs on a keypad.”
cue D’angelo with the “Shit, D@mn, Muthafucka!”
