Effects of Church Attendance on Marriage Stability
Couples that regularly attend church services were 46% less likely to get divorced than couples that never attend church services, according to a recent study of 3,000 people in the U.S.
Another factor that influences the stability of a marriage is the length of dating. Couples that dated three or more years before they get married were 39% less likely to get divorced than couples that dates less than a year.
Honeymoons are also important to a stable marriage. Couples that had a honeymoon were 41% less likely to get divorced than couples that did not have a honeymoon.
