Rate of divorce among Christians


Rate of divorce among Christians


One of the things that has really challenged me is the results of surveys they discovered Christians get divorced as much as non-Christians.  Bradley Wright has analyzed some survey results that paints a different picture.

58%, non-frequent Black Protestants
54%, non-frequent Evangelicals
51%, no religion (e.g., atheists & agnostics)
48%, ALL NON-CHRISTIANS
48%, non-frequent, other religions
47%, frequent Black Protestants
42%, non-frequent, mainline Protestants
41%, ALL CHRISTIANS
41%, non-frequent Catholics
39%, Jews
38%, frequent other religions
34%, frequent Evangelicals
32%, ALL FREQUENT CHRISTIANS
32%, frequent mainline Protestants
23%, frequent Catholics

I’d say those numbers are a little more reassuring.  I’m particularly impressed with the rate of divorce among frequent attenders of RC churches.
