Interesting research carried out shows couples who meet online are 28% more likely to split because there relationship is of a "poorer" quality.
I think if a marriage is going to last, it comes down to more than just how a couple met.
Married couples who met online are three times more likely to divorce than those who met face-to-face, a study has found. Online daters are also 28 per cent more likely to split from their partners within the first year, new figures from Michigan State University in the US suggest. A study of more than 4,000 couples found that relationships were far more stable if couples met in traditional ways such as introductions by friends or through work, hobbies or socialising. Couples who meet online are also less likely to get married and generally have a poorer relationship quality that those who met offline.
