Workplace love likelier to lead to marriage

London, Sept 30 : A new study has found that relationships that begin in the workplace are more likely to lead to marriage than those which start somewhere else.

Researchers, who conducted the study on 2,000 Britons, said because we spend so much time at work it's inevitable to form close friendships with office mates that may go on to become a relationship further on, the Daily Express reported.

They said that being in a relationship where you work in the same place as your partner also means you have something in common before you even get to know each other.

The study commissioned for the DVD release of the eighth series of TV comedy 'How I Met Your Mother' found that 14 per cent of couples who met through work ended up getting married, followed by 11 per cent who were introduced by friends.

On the other hand it was revealed that a relationship started at nightclub or pub is most likely to result in nothing more than a one-night stand.
