You’ve probably heard the grim fact: “Half of all marriages end in divorce.” But what if this “fact” is actually a myth? In a recently published book, The Good News About Marriage, best-selling author Shaunti Feldhahn presents the results of her 8-year ground breaking research that reveals that, contrary to popular opinion, most marriages are strong and happy for a lifetime, and 72% of people are still married to their first spouse. She reveals:
• The actual divorce rate has never got close to 50%.
• Those who attend church regularly have a significantly lower divorce rate than those who don’t.
• Simple changes make big differences to marriages.
For too long, our confidence in marriage has been undermined by persistent misunderstandings and imperfect data. This landmark book helps to bring hope back into the most fundamental of God-given institutions.
