eHarmony, the most popular online dating site on the web, has long been criticized for not allowing homosexuals to sign up. Soon, that's all about to change.
A New Jersey court ruled that failure to offer the dating service to gays is discriminatory, and the site must create a similar service for same-sex couples. The company has obliged and will launch their new site, Compatible Partners, by March 31st.
Though we're sad to see that it took this long and a court judgement to get eHarmony on the equality bandwagon, we're happy they've finally realized that homosexuals need help looking for love just as much as heterosexuals do! And though this is one small sign that the country is coming to terms with equal rights for gays, the very public fight against Prop 8 in California (a ballot measure that passed on Election Day to ban gay marriage) shows that homosexuals have a long way to go before they can truly find equality.
Do you think this change is long overdue? Do you think this country is ready to look past sexual orientation the way its beginning to look past race? [CNN]
