Where did you meet your spouse?

Was it at some cheesy bar during Mardis Gras?  Was it on the plane ride home from a bachelor party in Las Vegas? Or was it merely by being introduced through your circle of friends?

Web Watch knows people who’ve gone deep into long-term relationships based on all the above, which just goes to show that sometimes it’s all about where you are at the time rather than what you’re doing at the time as to what determines who you may end up forever.

But some people do have a more difficult time meeting potential spouses than others, which brings up the question: HOW DID YOU MEET YOUR SPOUSE?

According to a recent study into the matter, the vast majority of us – 30% – meet through friends and other established relationships.

Other ways people meet:

  • 10% met their spouse at work
  • 40% of single people in 2013 used an online dating service or app at some point in their dating process (it may or may not have played out for them, but let’s give kudos for the attempt)
  • 80% of those surveyed believe there is a “soul mate” out there
  • It’s believed that 15% of Americans will never marry

And just because it’s part of the research that the CDC releases:

  • Men between the ages of 25-44 have had six sexual partners
  • Women between the ages of 25-44 have had four sexual partners
