Online dating can lead to successful marriages

Many Georgia residents are now turning to the internet to find their romantic partners. An array of apps and websites with different focuses and goals invite people to become members, create a profile and explore the world of online dating.

While internet culture has been accused of undermining relationships by allowing easy availability of flirting and hook-ups, studies have shown that online dating can actually help to create stronger and longer lasting marriages. In addition, the use of online dating services can help people build more diverse relationships, whether interracial partnerships or simply romances with people outside their existing area or social circle.

Among heterosexual couples, online dating is the second most popular way for people to meet their partners, while for same-sex couples, online dating is the top means of making an introduction. From Tinder and Grindr to OKCupid and Match, a plethora of online dating sites is available to help people make new social connections. Researchers have indicated that the wide access provided to potential matches via online dating helps to form happier marriages when people decide to take the next step.

Marriages that develop from online dating are less likely to result in divorce and show higher rates of marital satisfaction, according to studies of relevant data. There are several factors that could lead to these results. One is that people are less likely to "settle" for unhappy relationships with the options provided by online dating. Another is that online daters are specifically looking for solid relationships.

However couples have met, however, sometimes irreconcilable differences develop that lead to the end of a marriage. In such an event, an attorney could assist a client in negotiating an overall settlement agreement which may produce a more favorable result than if the decision was left up to a judge.
