ZENIT - Study: Children of Divorce Less Likely to Practice Religion


With the issue of divorce being debated on in Catholic Philippines, this article on the effect of divorce on the children's faith is worth our consideration. When divorce is legalized in the Philippines, we run the great risk of the considerable waning of the faith among our young people. I find it striking that the report says " the most important influence on young people in terms of their faith is the practice of religion by their parents." 

Also, "some interpreted their parent’s divorce as damaging their core spiritual values. They are also more likely to identify themselves as spiritual but not religious." We should really study the impact of divorce on the children before getting into it. The damage it causes is irreparable!
