Romance is not the only thing that suffers. Plain old everyday interaction with children and grandchildren suffers too. Most of the children (ages 37 - 47) will answer their phones in mid-conversation. Some will be on there phones talking or playing a video game as they enter the door and hardly talk to us directly at all except to say goodbye as they leave. Some of the grandchildren are absolutely addicted to video games.
One granddaughter was addicted to texting. She was a great conversationalist with me before she got her phone. Ever after that I had to text her literally from across the room to get any acknowledgement that she even knew she was in my home.
And don't get me started on people video gaming and texting in the middle of church services.
