Religious Homogamy and Marital Happiness.
Ortega, Suzanne T.; And Others
Journal of Family Issues, v9 n2 p224-39 Jun 1988
Used data from a sample of 1,070 married Protestants and Catholics to examine the relationship between religious homogamy and marital happiness. Religious bodies were classified into six categories and then used to develop a measure of heterogamy or religious distance. Found the larger the religious distance, the greater the likelihood of unhappiness in the marriage. (Author/ABL)
