LOS ANGELES—Experiencing the eHarmony difference may now be expanded to gay couples.

In a class action sex discrimination case, eHarmony will pay $4,000 each to the California residents charging the company with its lack of gay and lesbian matchmaking.

This case continues the 2008 lawsuit, which required eHarmony to create compatiblepartners.com, a website for same-sex matches. Now, the company must grant gay, lesbian and bisexual users access to the original eHarmoy.com site. This allows full access to a previously heterosexual-matching site.

eHarmony defended its case by aying the company “does not stand alone when they provide their relationship-matching services to a single sexual orientation.”
