Internet dating and divorce

Those are the findings of a recent study conducted at Michigan State University which examined recent trends in how relationships that begin on the Internet have evolved since the inception of online dating.

The study found that one in ten Americans have used an online dating service to find a partner and two-thirds of these users have gone on an actual date with someone they met on the site.

Independent statisticians oversaw the data, and e Harmony agreed that the results could be published regardless of how the data reflected on the website.

Online romance In their survey of 19,131 people (just one person from each married couple participated), Cacioppo and his colleagues found 92 percent were still married in 2012, 7.44 percent were separated or divorced and about 0.5 percent were widowed.

Nearly 50% of those surveyed reported looking for marital relationships on dating sites.

While couples who met online were statistically found to be about as likely to end a relationship as an offline couple, the divorce rate for the couples who met online and then got married was far higher.

The study, a generally representative look at American couples married between 20, found that virtual meetings are becoming more of a norm: More than a third of married couples in that time met on the Internet.

"Our results indicate that of the continuing marriages, those in which respondents met their spouses online were rated as more satisfying than marriages that began in an offline meeting," said study researcher John Cacioppo, a psychologist at the University of Chicago."Moreover, analyses of breakups indicated that marriages that began in an online meeting were less likely to end in separation or divorce than marriages that began in an offline venue."
