He also said that e Harmony promotes heterosexual marriage, adding that (at the time) same-sex marriage was illegal in most places, saying "We don't really want to participate in something that's illegal."

Olson, an attorney for e Harmony, said that even though the company believed the complaint was "an unfair characterization of our business", it chose to settle because of the unpredictable nature of litigation.In 2010, e Harmony settled a separate class-action lawsuit filed in California that alleged illegal discrimination based on sexual orientation.But if you imagine that sending a daily barrage of texts, such as “driving to work, heading to lunch, or just left a meeting” is a romantic way to show you are thinking of your partner, think again.” To clarify – if these texts are used in ADDITION to phone, email, and actual dates, they’re fine.I text my wife to ask her to pick up something from the grocery store when she’s out.
