Technology and relationships

(KUTV) A new study has been released about technology and relationships.

Family therapist Lori Schade says she has seen a dramatic increase in affairs and she says it is directly linked to technology.

Schade says in just the last year she has seen a huge increase in cases where people are having emotional affairs and it is often with their smart phone. She points out that this due to the fact that they have more availability with their smart phones versus traditional computers.

Schade also says that cheating is not limited to a certain age group.

Therapists are concerned because it appears to be a shocking trend that is sweeping across Utah.
