Some Faiths Show Higher Fidelity: Study

Where you worship -- and whether you worship at all -- could be connected to your likelihood of straying from your marriage vows.

People who identify with a faith group are less likely to cheat on their spouses than those with no religious affiliation, a new study has found. But even among the religious set, the odds vary according to denomination.

"What matters the most is being involved in a religious organization," says Amy Burdette, co-author of the study and a post-doctoral scholar at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. "Those who attend church more are less likely to cheat, and those who have more conservative views of the Bible are less likely to cheat."
