Quote from: GSOgymrat on August 04, 2022, 05:43:31 AMI have no evidence to support this opinion but I suspect women have been more religious than men because being involved with a religious community has social advantages, particularly for women with children. I know my mother loved dropping us off at vacation Bible school in the summer because it gave her a break.

Men who were religious were "assumed" to make better husbands due to their supposed faith prohibiting them from cheating or leaving the family stranded, therefor women would prefer a more religious man in the hopes that offered a more stable safe relationship. Then they were more inclined to nudge the man to keep going to church to help keep him that way. As such women became more devoted to the religion to use that as a way of kind of used the church and it's related pressure to maintain the relationship. If the marriage failed the church offered support and friendship. Women would then more likely tout the benefits of said religion....at least that what I think..🧐
