In the past, the human relationships of couples were governed by a strict system of customs and values that despite coming from very remote times, led us towards "Good". With the emergence of individual media (cell phones, Tablet, PC) and with them social networks (Facebook, WhatsApp, Twitter, Instagram, etc.), people were curious to experience new forms of relationships, this curiosity being nourished became needs, and in this way we all felt the need to exchange our routine experiences on these websites.
Jorge Sánchez Escárcega raises “The repercussions or consequences that postmodernist culture has on the contemporary couple. Specifically, it analyzes the changes suffered by the human couple over the last two centuries ”(AMPAG, México DF May 2008). In the same way, René Pedroza Flores in his article called "The changes of the love bond in postmodernity" published in the Ibero-American Journal of Social and Humanistic Sciences states that "The love relationship in the couple has been changing due to the influence of postmodernity; the security of monogamy has lost ground due to the immediacy of sensual gratification ”(Autonomous University of the State of Mexico July - December 2015).
In harmony with the aforementioned studies, maintaining an emotional bond as a couple in this era is almost impossible, especially if one does not have a sufficiently open mind to accept, digest and get involved in these conscious and unconscious changes that penetrate us like bullets in a war field daily.
Until no less than 2 decades ago, couples to keep the flame of passion alive were concerned only with interpersonal factors such as:
- Good communication.
- Sexual attraction
And among other qualities that already depend on the taste of each couple, all these factors led to maintaining a stable environment free of infidelities and with high levels of loyalty. However, in the last 20 years, technological advances, although they have made life easier for us with greater comforts, have brought with them social and cultural repercussions that have directly and indirectly affected the relationships between friends, families and of course couples. Commitment has taken a backseat and sexual nourishment is the key point.
This technological revolution enveloped us in the information dimension, with just one clip we can establish new relationships, meet other people and perhaps find out that the world of couples in which we live we are not making the most of it by going to the common phrase "now it is not the same as before ”; many values have been revoked and new trends in couples have emerged, sexual fantasies have become the boom not only of singles but statistically cause greater interest in married couples.
This Modernity does not respect ages, genders, culture, values or religion, so being faithful every day is a much more difficult task.
Infidelity in Modern Society
Modern society brings with it gender equality, women and men, single or married working, raising their children, going to events or the gym, both genders are physically prepared to exercise them, but, if we speak of mentality, to today's society It lacks a lot to admit, for example, that a woman or a man with excellent physical appearance performs a menial job and it is there where the ego of humanity (taking advantage of the empowerment that feeling financially superior to the other) begins the attack usually through social networks to court that employee or colleague until many times to achieve the rupture of the relationship that he / she had, like this example, there are many.
If we stop to think about the issue of infidelity in these times, to the interpersonal factors previously exposed, modern influence is added, it is there where our conscience must restructure the definition of a faithful person and establish new guidelines or limits for a better coexistence of couple.
On the other hand, it can be concluded that infidelity is a situation that, in this current world, will be present one or more times in our relationships, according to statistics, it is impossible that if your partner has a social network, “he has never experienced that known or unknown message that sows unfaithful restlessness in him or her ”, in addition to this if he or she is going through a cloudy moment with you (a problem that is normal in every relationship), it is most likely that that fracture will end with that message, many other facts can be added to this list such as: boredom, routine, stress, lack of attention etc.
Finally, it is important to highlight that the need to impose and deceive other people is almost always part of the ego of individuals (whether they are men or women), so, even when limits are established to maintain respect in the couple, many times infidelity appears and the best option will always be to go to the best experts on the subject to successfully face the situation.
