Premier Radio: Jackie Elton interviewed on University of Chicago study

A new study by the University of Chicago found that couples who met online have happier, longer marriages, suggesting that such relationships may benefit from the selectivity and focused nature of Internet dating.

Jackie Elton was interviewed on Premier Radio in response to the study, which also reveals that in America more than a third of marriages between 2005 and 2012 began online.

“[With online dating sites] people are thinking about what they’re looking for; the kind of values, the kind of person they want to marry. Rather than just bumping into someone at work, or in a club or chat room etc. They’re thinking carefully about what it is they’re looking for.”
