Couples who meet online stand a better chance in marriage
After all the skepticism about online dating and doubts about whether marriages based on online dating work, here is some good news for couples who meet online:
You have a slightly higher chance of marital satisfaction and of staying together. This is according to a study in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science.
The study found that between the year 2005 and 2012, 1/3 (35%) of married couples met online. This great percentage of online hookups that translate into marriage were astonishing even to Neil Clark Warren, the CEO and Founder of eHarmony; the company that commissioned the survey. Warren's aim was "...to see generally how much people were using the Internet to explore the possibility of their getting married and getting matched to someone."
Your perfect partner could be online right now...

Since people have been wondering whether marriages of couples who meet online work, we are pleased to announce that YES!!! They do!! As per the survey, the divorce and separation rates for those that met online was at 5.96% against those who met offline at 7.67%. As in much as its a minute difference, I am sure most people expected the numbers to be much higher for our online couples.
As Warren puts it, dating sites provide "a pool of possibilities to date and eventually marry that’s much much larger than you can assemble on your own."
How about that!!! Kudos to our online marriages. I am sure those of us who had doubts can see for themselves that online dating works... it produces successful, satisfactory marriages... ITS REAL!!! So people, get online and explore this pool of possibilities. You could be our next success story. ;-)
