Study: Christianity Makes Better Fathers, Husbands

A recent report published by The Center for Marriage and Families found that men who attended church regularly had stronger marriages and were more involved in the lives of their children.

After examining three national studies, W. Bradford Wilcox, a sociology professor at the University of Virginia, found that 70 percent of church-attending men reported being “very happy” in their marriages, while only 59 percent of men who did not attend church reported being happy in their marriages.

"Why Marriage Matters, Second Edition: Twenty-Six Conclusions from the Social Sciences,” which Wilcox co-wrote with 15 other leading family scholars, also found that Christian fathers spent more one-on-one time with their children and were 65 percent more likely to hug and praise their children.

“Religion is achieving an important measure of success in overcoming the male problematic in late modernity by turning the hearts and minds of contemporary men towards the needs of their families,” Wilcox said.
