How do you think the divorce rate among those considered religious versus those who are agnostics or atheists would compare?
Christians and other very religious people have the highest rate of divorce.

Religion is always divisive. That's my conclusion.
in Canada...the change in divorce rates was as a result of changes in legislation. It was difficult to get a divorce 20 some odd years ago (or could be 30 now) - the reason had to be proven e.g. abusive relationships; adultery...it's not necessary now to prove that a spouse is abusive or has committed adultery luckily. Many women were basically forced to stay in terrible marriages - not now - however abusive relationships still exist. Whether or not religion has anything to do with it - i don't know and don't really care - my thoughts on this are based on laws for all Canadians.
I find this thread to be meaningless, simply due to the fact that religion shouldn't be a topic on the same topic as divorce.
Religion has nothing to do with whether or not, divorces happen. Hence, is meaningless.
People marry because of love and if it's not the reason they married to begin with, then both were only deceiving themselves and fooling the other.
There is data on this subject, I suggest Googling for it. I predict that the results will surprise you.

To atheists and agnostics out there,why do some religionists refuse to acknowledge that there arethose who do not believe in a god, even contending that those who do not believe or even question the existence of a god are in error and/or denial? Is it the purpose of such religionists to...
