Technology is changing our society, and in doing so, it is changing our relationships. We now use computers to communicate with those we love almost every minute of the day. We use technology within our families (even when we’re together in our houses) in ways that would have seemed incredibly strange in 1993.
We have integrated technology into our lives to such a degree that we now use it for many of our most intimate conversations. That means when a dispute arises within our family (maybe over the care of an elderly parent, or over shared custody of a child, or over spousal support payments), our expectation is that we will be able to use technology to resolve it.
