Over the past decade or so, cell phones have had a huge impact on our lives, revolutionising them in many different ways. There is no doubt that the new breed of cell phones that we have today have provided us with a huge range of benefits, ranging from being able to make calls and send texts through to being able to get online whilst on the move and the ability to enjoy a range of entertainment.
However, there are also reports that cell phones are playing a big part in the break up of many couples for a variety of reasons. One of the reasons behind increased turbulence in relationships and even relationship breakups is the fact that couples are now checking one another's text messages and social networking content, which they tend to use more often with such easy access via their cell phones.
Another reason for breakups is the lack of communication between coupled, which is sometimes partly driven by the fact that they are spending large amounts of time tied to their phones doing everything from going on social networking sites to playing games and more.
One official said: "For many couples, cell phones are bittersweet gadgets to have in the home. On one hand, they offer huge benefits to individuals and enable coupled to stay in touch but on the other hand they can create massive issues and can become the subject of obsessive behaviour for many individuals."
