Summary: The Internet is a phenomenal tool, but it can also be destructive to marriages. Easy access to sexual images, information, and chats lures some away from total commitment to their spouses. Other marriages are endangered by preoccupation with the Internet-too much time spent in solitude rather than in building relationships. Your Marriage and the Internet shows how couples can make the Internet a resource for strengthening marriage and family relationships rather than tearing them apart. It tackles issues of pornography, escapism, instant gratification, online fantasies, and Internet addiction. Personal stories illustrate the issues, and chapters are loaded with positive, practical suggestions for building up marriage. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_new_0800757653
