A survey carried out in China has showed increase of smartphones is directly affecting marriages and relationships. “Mobile electronic devices have become the ‘electronic enemy of love,” the research note stated. “A major enemy to spousal relations, parental relations and personal health” is the smartphone boom.
Of 13,000 people interviewed by the Communist Party’s women’s organization, 43 percent said they played with electronics during family get-togethers or when conversing with their spouse.
More than a third of respondents said they used electronic devices to keep their children quiet, nearly two thirds reported taking their smartphones to bed, and half continue to use those devices after turning off the lights.
