Catholic dating sites exchange rings

Do you take my assets? I do

Boost IT visibility and business value

Catholics around the world and the next will be pleased to know that two of the US' top Catholic dating sites have come together in the unity of an acquisition.

Yes, Catholic Match has thrown its loving arms around rival site CatholicDaters.com, meaning that single Catholics now have a single site through which to get to know one another well enough to reveal their confirmation names.

According to a press release on the Catholic PRWire, Brian Barcaro, a Catholic Match co-founder said: "It became clear after some initial discussion, that an acquisition made sense not only for both companies but for their customers as well."

Andrew Weyrich, CatholicDaters.com founder added: "I have enjoyed serving our customers and growing our service the past five years but this is a great opportunity for our customers and the entire Catholic community."

Well, those that are single and not under holy orders.

It appears the two sites should complement one another perfectly.

Catholic match's sign-up procedure appears to have been adopted from the Spanish Inquisition, with candidates asked to state their positions on transubstantiation, papal infallibility, contraception and pre-marital sex, among others. To be fair, taking issue with papal dogma doesn't seem to disqualify you from membership, though we can't help thinking that allowing potential candidates for the priesthood to signup will only cause trouble in the long-run.

CatholicDaters.com seems slightly more liberal in its outlook, though including a lifetime membership option in its price list does seem to be pushing it, given Rome's position on divorce.

It may or may not be significant that the merger was announced on 9 October, the feast day of St Denis, patron saint of France, and who after being decapitated on Montmartre calmly carried his head to a village northeast of the city. Perhaps he should also be the patron saint of HR managers. ®
