Online dating’s impact on relationships

by | Oct 24, 2017 | Divorce |

Online dating sites may actually have positive effects for New Jersey residents. According to one study, it could actually create stronger marriages and allow people greater chances to make connections thanks to an increased dating pool. This may be responsible for a rise in interracial marriages or relationships between people who have different personality traits from their own.

A rise in interracial marriages could have the effect of reducing racism or prejudice in society. A study published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences found that only 7 percent of 19,131 couples who got married after meeting online got a divorce. This compares to an average divorce rate in the United States of anywhere from 40 to 50 percent. Online dating is among the most popular ways to meet a romantic partner for both homosexual and heterosexual people alike.

About 30 million people use dating sites each month, and the way that they are structured could be responsible for the increase in successful relationships. For instance, some sites use questionnaires or other algorithms to show people who their ideal matches may be. It is also thought that those who use dating sites are more likely to want to get married.

Those who are going through divorce proceedings may wish to consult with an attorney. This may make it possible to learn more about the property division process as well as how a divorce may impact a parent’s relationship with a child. In some cases, divorce settlements may be negotiated privately or through mediation without the need to go to court.
