While some popular dating sites take pride in its role in matching couples, a new study found that people who met online are more likely to break-up, as opposed to couples that met in the real world. Couples who hit it off online are less likely get married. Others reported meeting their spouses through social media, chat rooms, and e-mail, among other online venues. Married couples that were introduced online are three times more likely to divorce that those who initially met in-person. And while the research found that nearly 8 percent of marriages initiated offline ended in breakups, couples who met online reported lower rates of separation and divorce -- 6 percent. The story has been changed to reflect certain updates.
