Dating For Money May Actually Work

HUFFINGTON POST - July 25 - It is said money doesn't buy happiness, but it does result in experiencing happiness. Economists from Case Western University were able to prove that increased household earnings caused improved emotional well-being. 75% of women in a ForbesWoman survey said they would turn down a marriage proposal from a man who is unemployed. Neil Clark Warren, founder of eHarmony.com famously proclaimed, "A couple needs to be within one standard deviation of each other in intelligence (10 points in either direction)".

Tinder Parties Prompt Legal Action From East Hampton

NEWSDAY - July 27 - East Hampton Town officials said they are pursuing legal action against Tinder after a group related to the corporate entity threw multiple large parties at a rented Montauk compound and violated noise codes. Tinder employees moved out of the property Wednesday, two days before their lease was set to expire. "It's one thing for a family to have a party at their house. It's another thing for a corporate entity to rent the house and use it exclusively for the promotional purpose of throwing parties," said Town Attorney Michael Sendlenski. The party hosts did not have special-event permits, which are required for gatherings of more than 50 people.
