Religion and Romance

It turns out that religion is good for romance. According to a recent study from the Institute for Family Studies and the Wheatley Institution, couples with shared religious values and beliefs report higher sexual satisfaction and overall relationship quality. The study examined four relational aspects in 11 different countries: relationship quality, fertility, domestic violence and infidelity.

Across the board, the study found that religion was good for relationships. 50% of women who shared religious beliefs with their husband reported being satisfied with their sexual relationship, compared to only 32% of women in couples with differing or no religious beliefs. Marriages with shared religious beliefs are prominently marked with commitment, satisfaction, attachment and stability.
