New Barna Survey Reveals Practicing Christians Happier with Marriages, but Some at High Risk for ‘Gray Divorce’

Marriage Helper, in partnership with Barna Group—one of America’s foremost researchers of culture and societal trends—is releasing the results of a new national survey on marriage and divorce. Results are from surveys conducted April 15th thru May 10th of over 1,500 US adults. The research reveals an alarming divorce trend, most notably among Generation X couples this Father’s Day.

“Our data on practicing Christians is encouraging, but when you connect that to the larger trends— Generation Xers are at the highest risk to repeat the ‘Gray Divorce’ cycle started by Baby Boomers—everyone needs to be on the alert. Xers are less satisfied in their marriages, less likely to seek help, and ripe for divorce as their kids leave home and life patterns shift,” said Kimberly Holmes, CEO of Marriage Helper. “While men believe they’re very satisfied in their marriages, decades of research shows that men are actually resistant to admitting there is a problem. We’re giving complimentary access to our Father’s Day tune up course precisely because it provides a non-intimidating way for men to dip their toe in the water and take a positive step to take action on their marriage.”
