Study About Marriage

This study on marriage and religion proves what we already knew.

Some pertinent data:
-- Women who are more religious are less likely to experience divorce or separation than their less religious peers.

-- Marriages in which both spouses attend religious services frequently are 2.4 times less likely to end in divorce than marriages in which neither spouse worships.

-- Religious attendance is the most important predictor of marital stability, confirming studies conducted as far back as 50 years ago.

-- Couples who share the same faith are more likely to reunite if they separate than are couples who do not share the same religious affiliation.

Moreover, Fagan pointed out, religious practice is also related to a reduction in such negative behaviors as domestic abuse, crime, substance abuse and addiction.

Just because it's old news, doesn't mean it's not good news.

Nice site you got here.

Thanks. We have been working hard on making the site even better this summer.

I agree that the good news never gets old.
