Do you believe the happiness portrayed on social media is genuine?
For example I was with someone for years whose kids were not awful, but very entitled and disrespectful at times. This person was also extremely moody, manipulative, hid things from me and at times was emotionally and verbally abusive. I also began to feel the relationship was very one sided and I was being used finanically in order to support him and his kids. Long story short I left him and only months later he is remarried and suddenly super happy in his marriage and always bragging about it on social media frequently. What is the likelihood that all of this is genuine and he went from being a self centered, manipulative, emotional abuser to a perfect husband in a number of months? To add the woman he married literally had nothing to lose by marrying him, or so she believes? So she married him immediately but was literally leaving nothing behind. What are the chances that he did a 180 in a number of months and is suddenly a selfless, financially responsible, caring, loving, attentive husband with two great kids?
