Marriages Mixed and Pure

PrayTell reported on divorce rates as a function of religious identification, Catholic, Protestant, Evangelical, and no belief.

C P E N
C 29% 24% 40% 26%
P 24% 42% 32% 63%
E 40% 32% 32% 61%
N 26% 63% 61% 44%

Fr Anthony Ruff:

Pastoral counsel for an engaged Catholic can hardly be, “I’m concerned that you’re marrying a fellow Catholic – do you realize that your risk of divorce is higher than if you would go find a None or a Mainline Protestant to marry?”!

I find the Roman Catholic/Evangelical Protestant spike to be interesting. Should that be a concern for political bedfellows as well as couples?
