Conservatives are married more than liberals: 53% to 33%. Why do you think that is?

    Because they're just "better" human beings in every conceivable way, with no flaws whatsoever... and if you aren't one of them, then you should 'go on down to the garden and eat worms...'

    Statistically, those that identify as politically conservative are also more socially conservative and that is what people in our society view as the standard of human relationships.

    Liberals value freedom a lot more, obviously. That is why they don't force each other into this ancient form of bondage.

    You have to remember there are two people involved in any marriage including a conservative one. The other person may not be a conservative, and sometimes that may be part of why the marriage doesn't work.

    If someone marries someone else, based only on similar political affiliation then IMO, they're doing it wrong.

    Cos marriage is a traditional value, and conservatives follow traditional values. Seems pretty self-explanatory.
    But do conservatives stay married longer?
    Isn't Rush Limbaugh a conservative? He's doing more than his share, keeping the numbers up :-)

    Conservative's tend to get married younger, it might be for a few reasons.

    Firstly, the religious ones don't often believe in sex before marriage and therefore if a couple wants to get physical they have to marry first.

    If they come from conservative households there is likely more pressure to get married (Especially for conservative women).

    Marriage is considered a tradition for them which they must take part in (While many liberals view it as more just a legal commitment to each other). This also explains why conservatives are usually very against same sex marriage while liberals don't see the big deal.

    Conservatives are statistically more likely to settle down in the place they grew up in or a place near their home, this probably means they are in general more content staying in one place and this might include people too, they meet someone they love quite young and decide to get married and settle down. They enjoy stability more. Liberals are more likely to move out of their states/countries, to want change and excitement, and settling down with one person early on is certainly not something which will provide that.

    Good points.

    Slight side tangent:

    No one ever seems to stop to think that when the whole 'no marriage before sex' thing first started, the average human life span was a helluva LOT shorter; in the old days in this country (and many others) most people were generally married by the time they were 14 and 15 years old.

    Most conservatives uphold traditional values and marriage is the traditional route to declaring a commitment to the one you love and all that it entails (raising children together and so on).

    Conservatives are usually Christian and Christians tend to believe in marriage more. They see it as a spiritual bond, and liberals (often times Atheist) see it as a piece of paper. From my objective observation.

    That's pretty much the point.

    So many people seem so desperate to somehow 'prove' that they are "better" than everyone else.

    Yet... we all have the same red blood; we all have hopes, dreams and fears... and one day we will all be nothing but dust.

    The same exact fate awaits every last one of us, but we waste so much of our time on petty and superficial differences.

    Our species contrives most of its own problems.

    WOW, this goes beyond marriage. Plus, who wants to marry someone with an attitude like that. Marriage is a responsibilty. It is easy to walk away when you are not tied up in the marriage thing. That may be the reason for the high number of single parent families relying on the government for their support.
