Does Facebook wreck marriages?

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

Facebook?  I've never met anyone on Facebook.  Is this a "straight" thing?

From SmartMoney:

More than a third of divorce filings last year contained the word Facebook, according to a survey by Divorce Online, a UK-based legal services firm. And over 80% of U.S. divorce attorneys say they’ve seen a rise in the number of cases using social networking, according to the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers. “I see Facebook issues breaking up marriages all the time,” says Gary Traystman, a divorce attorney in New London, Conn. Of the 15 cases he handles per year where computer history, texts and emails are admitted as evidence, 60% exclusively involve Facebook. The site did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
