Couples all over the world, including many active servicemen and women, have used eHarmony to meet and fall in love. In fact, the percentage of military men and women joining eHarmony increased by 56% from 2006 to 2008.

Take Jonathan and Lisa Stoddard, who were included in a USA Today cover story. They met on eHarmony while Jonathan was serving with the United States Marine Corps in Iraq. According to Lisa, in order to talk to her on the phone, “Jon had to put on 30 pounds of protective gear, go outside and hide, and somehow try to get a good signal using a satellite phone.” 

A year and a half later, the two married, and have been inseparable ever since.  Describing their happiness, Lisa said, “I am literally brought to tears thinking about how blessed I am to be [married] to the love of my life that I don’t think I would have met had it not been for eHarmony. Jon and I are proud to admit that eHarmony is where it all began.”
