After The Wedding

  It is our hope at Limestone Presbyterian Church to be as much a part of your marriage as we are a part of your wedding where together in Christ, we claim hope over despair, prefer truth to complacency, and seek to grow in personal 
faith and compassion for the world. Please let us know if we can assist you 
in any way as you learn to live in marriage. We pray God’s blessings and love 
for your life together.

Attending Church Together Results in a Happier Marriage
University of Virginia sociologist W. Bradford Wilcox, using data from the 
General Social Survey (GSS), the National Survey of Families and Households (NSFH), and the National Survey of Family Growth (NSFG), found that married churchgoing Americans, regardless of race or religious denomination, were more likely to describe themselves as “very happy” – more so than non-churchgoing married couples. Professor Wilcox also found that couples who regularly attend church together are less likely to divorce. "Attending church only seems to help couples when they attend together," Wilcox explained. "But when they do, they are significantly happier in their marriages, and they are much less likely to divorce, compared to couples who do not attend church. I would say that church attendance is a beneficial component of marriage when it is done together." Copied from a news report: “Churchgoing married couples happier, study says.”
