eHarmony founder: "We've had quite a number of same-sex marriages"

Dr. Neil Clark Warren
81-year-old Dr. Neil Clark Warren, founder of eHarmony, was interviewed by CNN Money. You might recall that, in 2005, eHarmony was sued in New Jersey for discrimination against gay consumers. It is worth mentioning that eHarmony was represented by marriage equality champion, Ted Olson. In 2009 eHarmony settled the suit by launching Compatible Partners, a site for gay singles.

According to Warren, 350,000 eHarmony members departed out of principle. Warren is an Evangelical Christian and the company started out as a Christian dating site. “We didn't want to pretend to be experts on gay and lesbian couples. We're not anti-gay at all … It's a different match.”

Warren told CNN that the company uses its patented algorithm to connect people based on 29 dimensions of compatibility and is now seeing success in matching up gay and lesbian singles on Compatible Partners. “We've had quite a number of same-sex marriages.”
