With the tensions and conflicts that can exist in a relationship, Spencer said the foundation of faith becomes an important unifying force.
Sociologist Gerald Mendelsohn says the practice of choosing a romantic partner with a shared religion, culture, ethnicity and or nationality, is driving the demand for niche religious dating sites like Christian Mingle, JDate, which caters to Jewish singles, and Muslima, for Muslims.
The site has gained 5 million new users in the last two years.
Christian Mingle boasts a 9 million membership base.
The religious online dating community is further subdivided into sites such as Catholic Match for Catholics, Jwed for orthodox Jews and LDSMingle for Mormons.
But the decision to date within one’s religion should not come from external pressure.
Rather, it should be the result of experience and introspection.
“I just thought I want to raise my kids similarly to the way I was raised.” Wolf, 29, said that many of the people he has met through JDate feel the same way.
