Remember when online dating used to be considered weird – or even desperate? Well, those days are long gone.
According to a new study from the University of Chicago, married couples who met online are 25 percent less likely to get divorced than those who met through friends, family, or by chance.
Researchers found that just over a third of people who got married between 2005 and 2012 met their spouses online.
And, surprisingly, those relationships that began over the Internet had a better chance of going the distance.
Not only that, couples who met online reported much higher levels of happiness than those that did not. (Los Angeles Times)
