New Study Says Online Relationships Lead To Happy Marriages

Can relationships that start on websites such as Facebook and Match.com really turn out better than traditional dating?

According to a new study in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, of nearly 19,000 couples who met online, only 7% of those couples eventually separated or divorced.

Why is this?

For one, social media sites ask you numerous questions when creating your profile, such as what are you favorite foods and hobbies, where you like to travel, how many children you’d like to have, etc.

The study examined relationships from one to seven years in duration, so it’s too early to tell if online relationships will outlast offline relationships. But in an era where the divorce rate is nearly 40-50%, it’s an encouraging sign for those who are in an online relationship.
