BYU Professor Says Religion Plays Role in Fidelity

ksl.com - BYU Professor Says Religion Plays Role in Fidelity: "A BYU professor says being actively religious could help married couples remain faithful.

David Dollahite is a professor of family life at Brigham Young University. He was doing research on how religion influences marriage and family when he started to see a link between religion and fidelity.

He says there are several studies that show religious involvement helps protect marriages from infidelity. But he wanted to know more about why that might be the case.

Dollahite interviewed 57 married couples in New England and California. Each couple claimed to be highly religious and represented several different faiths, including Christianity, Islam and Judaism.

He says highly religious couples said they viewed their marriages as sacred and more important than a simple human connection."
