eHarmony Forced to Match Homosexual Couples

Under an agreement with New Jersey’s Division on Civil Rights, eHarmony will create a same-sex dating Web site — “Compatible Partners” — and pay $50,000 in administrative costs. Eric McKinley, who filed a “discrimination” complaint against eHarmony three years ago, gets $5,000 under the settlement. The new site and eHarmony will maintain individual matching pools and registration information. As a result, users of the two sites cannot be paired. A similar lawsuit against eHarmony is pending in California.
