Research indicates that interethnic couples often make more money and their kids do better in school.
Indeed, as Georgetown Law professor Sheryll Cashin argued in the New York Times this summer, Interracial Love Is Saving America by training people in empathy and cultural flexibility.
This shift is generational: Millennials are more likely to offer to split the check than are Generation Xers or baby boomers.
[NY Post warns of the perils of dating ‘hot women’] When I spoke to Dayana Yochim, a consumer finance specialist for Nerd Wallet, about this study, she noted that it was a decent chunk of money. If you only go out on one date a year and this is what you’re spending,” then that’s a problem, she said.
“If finding love and dating is on your high-priority list and you’re feeling the financial pinch from what you’re spending, then look elsewhere in your budget,” Yochim said.
“What else are you spending on that’s not bringing you joy, or not bringing you closer to your life goals?
About half of men, according to the Match survey, think men should pay on dates; 36 percent of women agree.
If a woman offers to pay, it might mean she’s not interested.
“During the 2000’s decade, the percentage of new marriages that are interracial changed from 10.68 percent to 15.54 percent, a huge increase of nearly 5 percentage points, or 50 percent,” Ortega and Hergovich write.
These services apparently do their job well: Today, about a third of new marriages in America are created by people who met online.
And according to a fascinating new paper, all those right swipes are bringing people from different backgrounds together.
“After the 2009 increase, the proportion of new interracial marriage jumps again in 2014 to 17.24 percent, remaining above 17 percent in 2015 too.
Again, it is interesting that this increase occurs shortly after the creation of Tinder, considered the most popular online dating app.” In a stunning reversal from its early reputation as a hookup app, Tinder (and its kin) may be doing something positive for American monogamy.
