Church attendance and infidelity

Whites N = 13,431

Blacks, N = 1,627

GSS respondents who have ever been married were asked if they ever cheated on their spouse. The graphs shows that both blacks and whites who often attend religious services are less likely to be unfaithful. The rate of infidelity for never-goers is about double that of those who go all the time among whites and about 1.5 times higher among blacks. This, in spite the fact that one frequently runs into hot chickies at church.

I think that many lounge-lizards would be astonished at how many uber-hot women never go to bars, but are church bunnies who marry men they meet at church or in christian-singles groups and websites.

Its probably good that the lounge lizards dont know in a way.....

With our divorce and child custody laws being what they are, any man is taking a huge risk marrying a equally-attractive secular woman. She can just keep looking to trade up, because he is going to pay for her indulgence when she does with child support, alimony, the house, his insurance on the kids, and possibly her, half his retirement (may not be that much now-LOL), etc.
