Most Americans Believe in Love at First Sight [POLL]

Is the notion of ‘love at first sight’ romantic or old fashioned?  A new 60 Minutes/Vanity Fair poll finds that Americans are still clinging to romance, although by as slim margin.

56% of us believe in love at first sight, with the percentage even higher among married people and those in relationships.

That only makes sense because a lot of those people are still with the person they fell for upon first glance.

While we remain, for the most part, bullish on instant love, we’ve given up on other traditional romantic gestures.

28% said “for better or worse” is the hardest marriage vow to keep, followed closely by “being faithful” at 26%

I’ll bet the approval numbers would be a lot lower for the ‘obey’ part of the vows.

45% of Americans think asking a father for his daughter’s hand in marriage is a necessary courtesy, while less than 5% found it sexist and offensive.

Old fashioned maybe, but ‘sexist and offensive’?  That’s a little harsh!
