Shocker: People Realize That Internet Affairs Are Damaging

from the what-a-surprise dept

For those who didn’t yet figure it out, even an online “affair” can damage a relationship. That’s what a new study says, though, I question the methodology. They study was only conducted with students who may have a fairly different definition of what constitutes a relationship than those out of college and in the working world. Still, as the study shows, even those who don’t necessarily think of an online affair as “cheating,” most still realize that it would hurt their partner to know about it. It seems pretty obvious that if something you’re doing would hurt your partner that it’s probably not going to do much good for the relationship.
