Scream FB marriages -the new dating

My former foster kids drive me insane. Apparently when you meet someone you like, you claim you are married.

Oh hell no, you are married to three women every few months. Get real, Grow up.

My messages to my foster kids:

You're marriage is so annoying to me. You are dating someone, that's it. It lasted what? One week, one month? You were married before, in your mind and this cheapens marriage, it's not a 2 week decision.

I think you need to grow up, all your new girls (and there is one a month) will read your old FB posts and see that you love them all, all the past girls. So it's worthless. Aside from that, it's annoying and makes you seem very young.

How about just acting more mature rather than faking it?


Edit - I didn't explain this well. Kids on FB are changing their status to married when they date someone.

At least it's just a facebook status instead of them running off and ACTUALLY getting married.

I often joke and say I'm married to my best friend, but if they're serious on there then we get a problem IMO...lol

It's a virtual world. They can be whatever they want to be.

I've heard young ladies use the term....it's just kid slang.....

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

I was married in kindergarten. It was silly and enjoyable to pretend being "married" as a six year old, and of course, it didn't mean anything so it was never a bother to anyone. My kindergarten wife and I dated for a bit in university, and we picked up the habit of being "married" again during that time - quite to the bemusement of our friends, until we explained the back story and all had a laugh. In my context, it was just a silly word and a bit of fun, and its no different for a couple teens putting it on Facebook. It has never affected my later life, because no one took it even remotely seriously. It will never affect the teens later life either, because a Facebook relationship status isn't a serious gesture.

I understand. Its just one more way depreciate the value of marriage. The meaning of marriage is all but obsolete. Sad, but true.

Sounds like they are playing with the idea, when they have come from a broken home/no support. I don't see the harm, really - my heart goes out to them.. It's hard enough trying to figure out your identity and relationships in general when you come from a "normal" household, I can only imagine it's much harder to figure out the whole love thing coming from a background like that

That was your actual message? I'm assuming you're the adult (since you said they are your former foster kids)? Wow.

I'm sorry but that wasn't a very mature message.

I absolutely get what you're saying Alex. My cousin (who is 14) is FB married. I don't have many FB friends that are in their 20s and below, but they do the FB married thing occasionally. It drives me up the wall! I want to yell at all of them to stop, but I have to tell myself to calm down, that it's just a thing the younger generations do now. Hell, I have a friend near 40 who is still actually married but separated change her FB last name to the guy she is dating and put a married status. I just try to overlook it all although inside I'm screaming.

I think our world has become much too virtual (as I sit behind a computer screen ) It leaves a much to big window open for what is real and what is not. I strive to raise my kids to grow up knowing what is real and how to react to real world problems. I will never allow them to "marry" on facebook, nor do they play video games more than a few times a year, or even have a facebook account until they are mature enough and proper supervision can be provided. I expect more of my kids, that's the problem I think, people stopped expecting anything from their kids. A bit off topic, but it kind of all leads to the same thing. I'm pretty darn passionate about being a parent and I honestly don't think people realize that how you parent your kid from the very beginning determins how they will be as adults, have high expectations as far as behaviour is concerned, love them deeply, play lots and thell them you love them often It could solve a lot of world problems if we took being parents more serious ;)
