CHURCH IS GOOD FOR MARRIAGE

Married couples who attend church services frequently are happier and more likely to succeed in their marriages than those who don’t attend church often or not at all, finds a Univ. of Virginia study. 70% of husbands who attend church regularly are “very happy” in their marriages vs. 59% of husbands who do not attend religious services. For women, the figures were similar. Churches supply moral norms like sexual fidelity and forgiveness, family-friendly social networks that lend support to couples facing the ordinary joys and challenges of married life, and a faith that helps couples make sense of the difficulties in their lives--from unemployment to illness--that can harm their marriages.
