Survey: 35% of recent marriages began online

The study looked at 19,000 couples married between 2005 and 2012 and found more than a third began their relationship on the Internet.

The research also claims married couples who met online are slightly happier and less likely to split.

The study is controversial. It was commissioned by the dating website eHarmony.

But social scientists don't completely discredit the findings, saying dating sites may attract people who are serious about marriage.
