Healthy Marriage Habits Quiz #1 – Marriage Rituals and Routines

One study examining 50 years of research on the effect of simple rituals and routines like eating together, praying together, working and worshipping together found that these simple activities had an almost magical degree of power over marriage and family health (Fiese, Tomcho, Douglas, et al, 2002).  Couples who regularly worked, played, discussed more than just the tasks of life, and prayed together were significantly happier and more stable than other couples, exhibited much less anxiety, depression, substance abuse and other problems that negatively impact marital well-being (Fiese, 2006).
