Online Dating Causing Divorce Rates to Rise

LONDON, December 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

According to reports from both 'D8 A Geek' and 'Christ Ambassadors' - two popular news blogs - online dating is causing divorce rates globally to rise…but religious communities are bucking the trend.

Two reports from different news blogs with polar opposite beliefs have made the same claim that internet dating is responsible for the rise in divorce rates.  According to one report countries across Europe including Denmark - historically holding the lowest divorce rate of all - have all seen an increase in the number of divorces.  The United Kingdom has the highest rate in the EU with nearly 20 people in every 1000 getting divorced per annum.  

According to the first report published here, as the number of internet dating users has grown, so too have the number of divorces.  Yet the rate of divorces amongst religious communities is much lower.  A study of the religious groups revealed a rate of divorce amongst Christian communities is on average 53% less then the rate of divorce amongst the non-religious.  The second report states that whilst the stats can't provide a clear reason for why people divorce, it does believe that the numbers support the argument that less importance is placed on civil marriage compared to religious marriage.

Both reports have detailed the ways internet dating may have eroded people's commitment to long term relationships due to the sheer amount of choice now available to both the single and attached, but there is room for both according to some.

"Online dating provides a place for you to not only just meet someone new, but to meet someone with likeminded values and beliefs.  A successful long term marriage is most likely to occur when you both have a shared belief which transcends civil beliefs."


The difference between non-religious and religious divorce rates support this supposition.  One report contends that whilst internet dating itself is not a bad thing, it has encouraged a disconnected attitude towards relationships allowing people to simply walk away when things get tough comfortable in the knowledge that there are plenty of other people online to date.  It has also changed the attitude to commitment and marriage.  

One report closes its argument with several statistics including the fact that only 20% of committed relationships begin online.  It also claims that one reason why the divorce rates amongst the religious communities are lower then those of the non-religious variety is because of the added social pressure the religious community brings.  The Makeshift Alpa, - a highly regarded expert on dating from an evolutionary psychological aspect and offers a free dating clinic - appears to share this view.

"Marriage is for a long time and couples will inevitably go through rough patches. One of the most influential factors that keep people together when things are hard is the social judgment their community makes of them. Religious communities put much more pressure on people to make marriage work. I am not surprised they appear resistant to this [divorce] trend."
