Marriage rows
Jaspal Bhatti

COUPLES take marriage vows at their weddings so that`A0the marriage doesnít turn into a series of rows. Thatís a separate story that despite vows and sincere oaths, marital relationships often pass through choppy waters. As a matter of fact, a daily dose of tu-tu main-main adds some colour and spice to a marriage, at least for the neighbours.

Sometimes arguments take an ugly turn and couples find themselves in courts for divorce. One of the main reasons for divorce these days is Facebook. Family lawyers in Britain say flirtation on the website is a major factor in breakdown of many marriages.

I think the traditional Catholic vow needs to be modified a bit. "I, Liza, take you, Samuel, to be my lawfully wedded husband. I promise to be true to you in good times and in bad, in sickness and in health. I promise not to flirt on the Facebook or any other social or unsocial website and honour you all the days of my life."

Such is the craze for Facebook that there is even a joke about it ó a relationship is only official if it has been updated on the Face-book. Earlier, if your husband was found talking across the wall to a woman in the neighbourhood, it affected the relationship. Now even if you are talking to somebodyís wall on the Facebook, you could be suspected of being unfaithful.
