It's been said the family that prays together stays together. According to a new study, attending worship services together does lead to stronger relationships by couples.
The study is part of the National Marriage Project at the University of Virginia. And, it revealed that when couples prayed together it added another level of intimacy. In general, couples who attended religious services together had higher levels of satisfaction with their relationships than all other couples.
However, the study noted that, where marriage partners are from different faiths, religion can actually become an issue that creates discord among couples.
