If you’re looking for a ring in addition to a college degree, you may want to consider a Christian university. Researchers at Facebook recently analyzed how many of their users who classify as alumni of individual colleges later married a spouse who also went to that school.
Their research confirmed what many former Christian college students suspected: Christian universities are the best places to find a spouse. Out of the top 25 American universities where men were most likely to find a spouse, 24 were religious colleges (most either Bible or Christian liberal arts schools). For women, 15 of the 25 schools where they were most likely to meet their future husbands were private, religious-affiliated schools.
Monte Cox, dean of Harding University’s College of Bible & Ministry—a school that had the distinction of being featured on both lists—told The Christian Post, “The perception on the outside looking in is that we are a marriage factory, but it’s not because Harding University is trying to be a Match.com kind of place and push marriage on people.”
But they can now say that along with M.Div. (Masters of Divinity), the Mrs. is currently one of their most attractive post-graduate offerings.
