Study: A Third of New Marriages Start Online

We love our computers, and now we are increasingly turning to them to find love online, according to a study released Monday. Researchers found that more than a third of new marriages started online and that those relationships were slightly happier than those that began more traditionally. The study, which surveyed more than 19,000 people who married between 2005 and 2012, also found that roughly 45 percent of the couples who met online found each other through dating websites. The rest met through social networking, chat rooms, and other online forums.
