Marital satisfaction is the key to maintaining strong marriages and to ensure individual and couple wellbeing, and one way to increase marital satisfaction is to educate people religiously. Religiosity is also an effective in preparing couples for marriage and a defensible clinicians intervention counselling couples having problems in their marriage aiming at preventing or alleviating marital distress and divorce because it can influence all types of marriage, no matter their religion, race, or generation, and three of the four stages of a family – early marriages, families with young children, and empty nests. However, couple therapists and clergy counselling couples preparing for marriage or having problems in their marriage should not take for granted that religious devotion can shield couples from declines in satisfaction or divorce: they should rather re-consider with the couple the role religiosity plays in their relationship, if any, and also the role of emotional intimacy.
