University study chronicles divorce statistics

According to research results released by Baylor University’s Council on Contemporary Families, couples who are non-religious have a lower recorded divorce rate.

The study, which examines shifts in United States marriages within the past 50 years, revealed that white conservative Protestants and black Protestants have sought divorces at higher rates than people who are not affiliated with a religious group. The study examined couples whose legal status was recognized by the 1964 Civil Rights Act.
