article imageTV romance may affect real-life marriage

By Owen Weldon     Apr 3, 2013 in Entertainment
A new study that was published in the Journal Mass Communication and Society found that television may play a role in how people feel about marriage and their spouses.
Almost 400 married individuals were surveyed by researchers at Albion College, according to ScientificAmerican. Researchers analyzed the participants' television-viewing habits, as well as their belief in the portrayal of relationships on television as well as how they feel about their own marriage.
According to FutureScienceLeaders, the researchers found that the participants who believed that television relationships (romantic) happen in real life are actually less committed in their own relationship, which may lead to cheating and the breakdown of the marriage.
According to Alphagalileo, the article's author, Jeremy Osborn, said that he hopes that people read the article ask themselves if their expectations for their partner is realistic and where the expectations come from?
Osborn went onto say that many people immerse themselves in media images from television and the internet, and many of those people do not have a sense of how those images are actually impacting them.
