Re: Has faith/religion helped your relationship?
That ^^ makes sense. I find that there is so much judgement in the world around us for who we label ourselves to be, which is why I dislike labels.
I read a few interesting articles about marriage, and who has the highest divorce rates. Apparently, now these are just stats, but as far as stats go, atheists have the least amount of divorce, while evangelical Christians have the highest. And some of the best marriages are between atheists and religious people. I wonder if evangelical Christians are high with divorce because there is this idea out there, that there is 'one, true soul mate' that God has picked for you, and then you marry him/her, and if the couple isn't prepared on a secular level for marriage at all, and is thinking that they just need to pray their marriage into success, then that could be part of the problem. I'm not sure, but that comes to mind when I read that.
