Divorce rates among conservative Christians highest

Check out this article. The most interesting is the finding that "Divorce rates among conservative Christians were much higher than for other faith groups, and for Atheists and Agnostics." However it isn't all doom and gloom. They have found that the 50% figure for divorce often cited in the media is much too high. Closer to about 40% and that is only a prediction. It ain't fab, but it is an improvement. According to the hard data 25% of adults will have at least 1 divorce, so that seems to me much lower than the 50% thrown around in today's media.
