I think it has both benefited and destroyed relationships. Its great that now you can just send a quick text or phone call or email or whatever to tell your SO that you're thinking about them or that you want to hang out etc so as far as keeping contact I think its great. Also with things like online dating it opens up your dating life into a national and even global scale to give you the "best" match for a partner and possibly lead you to your happy ending where as before it was all about actually going out and finding them. With the online dating there comes a lot of impostors disappointing dates when you realize they may not be the same person they were on your computer, also the how you met stories aren't as cute ;)
It has destroyed relationships in the sense that there is so little face to face contact anymore, its always texting and Facebook or twitter and I feel like its made people more awkward and lazy. I feel like texts are a lot less meaning full than actual conversation face to face, there's not as much of an emotion connection in that for me. People are now too scared to ask other out in person and instead now its just getting their number or adding them on Facebook and asking them out on there, to me it seems like less risk= less reward. Now also with social media sites its causing lots of emotional rollercoastering amongst couples with certain friends being added, pictures being posted, statuses written and what not. Things that make people start to doubt their relationship and become insecure.
In conclusion I am unsure as to the balance between the pros and cons but Its just the way things are today so deal with it or suffer :P1
