Is Your Smartphone Endangering Your Relationships?

March 17, 2017

If your phone contributed to a disease, wouldn’t you get rid of it? Likewise, if your phone was destroying your relationships, wouldn’t you get rid of it?

Those thought-provoking questions are posed by Columbia International University alumnus Brian Mesimer. He is a counselor at The Christian Counseling Center of First Presbyterian Church in Columbia, South Carolina.

Mesimer, who earned a Master of Arts in Counseling from CIU in 2016, says he finds that when it comes to marriage counseling, there are often three people with him in the room: the man, the woman and one partner’s smartphone – a source of marital indiscretion.
