Percentage of marriage online dating
According to the "2014 State of Dating in America" report published by Christian Mingle and JDate, 61 percent of Christians said they would have sex before marriage.Fifty-six percent said that it's appropriate to move in with someone after dating for a time between six months and two years.The Internet has also changed how Americans meet their spouse.
The rise in the Internet has transformed how Americans work, play, search, shop, study, and communicate.
Fifty-Nine percent said it doesn't matter who the primary breadwinner of the family is.
And 34 percent responded that while it would be nice to marry someone of the same faith, it's not required.
Sussmann told CP she hasn't seen research that shows premarital sex or cohabitation lead to divorce, although she admitted that studies on cohabitation are not conclusive.
Sprigg, however, argued that many researchers have shown "that even though partners often cohabit as a trial marriage, couples who cohabit before marriage are more likely to divorce, not less likely." He noted that these couples "are not actually practicing marriage – they are practicing lack of commitment."While Sprigg and Sussmann disagreed on some points, they agreed that traditional gender roles – with the husband as the primary breadwinner – are less important in today's society.
