It's not just church attendance and worship habits that are affected by divorce, according to the U.S. News and World Report. A study published in March of this year in the Journal for the Scientific Study of Religion “found that children who had two religious parents who get divorced are twice as likely to become estranged from their church as adults, compared to people whose parents didn't get divorced.” The authors of this study said that previous studies aren't necessarily accurate, because they didn't take into consideration the religious views of the parents.
This, however, is not a reason for an unhappy couple to stay together. Other research points to the fact that children are psychologically better off if their parents are divorced than if they stay together and argue incessantly.
