In its conclusion, the study speculated that the practice of looking for partners online may itself “suppress the desire for getting married” leading to more problems within the married relationship once it begins.

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.

A popular claim is that online dating and social networking sites are major contributors to infidelity and divorce.

A new economics paper presents some very compelling evidence that it is simply not true.

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