Christians and divorce1 min read

The oft repeated line that Christians are just as likely to divorce as non-Christians has taken a hit after a recent study showed a somewhat different story.

The facts do show that those claiming to be a Christian have basically the same divorce rate as non-Christians, but those who attend church regularly have a rate 30 to 50% less than others.

The study also brought to light to development of the neo-traditional family, defined as one that supports the traditional gender roles, but has a husband that is more emotional supportive and involved in the life of his wife and children. According to the study, marriages of this type tend to be stronger and happier.
