Finkel says the overall percentage of marriages in the survey is "on the high end of what I would have anticipated."Sociologist Michael Rosenfeld of Stanford University in Stanford, Calif., says the numbers seem "reasonable."He says his own research, published last year in the American Sociological Review, found 22% of newly formed couples had met online, "but couples who meet online are more likely to progress to marriage than couples who meet in other ways." He says his new analysis of nationally representative data found that of 926 unmarried couples followed from 2009 to 2011, those who met online were twice as likely to marry as those who met offline.Although Rosenfeld says the paper is a "serious and interesting paper" and "Cacioppo is a serious scholar with a big reputation," he is concerned that "the use of an Internet survey which leaves non-Internet households out might bias the results."Harris Interactive says the results have been weighted to correct for potential bias in its online surveys.

Sometimes, the roles would be reversed, where a bachelor did the asking, while the bachelorettes did the answering.
