A fundamentalist group in Wisconsin is out with a study on marriage and religion, and their effect on kids.
The report by the Wisconsin Family Council analyzes data from a national survey of children's health. Council director Julaine Appling says it finds children have fewer problems at school and home when they live with both biological parents and frequently attend religious services. Appling says such situations give children stability and the influence of a mother and father.
Appling says the study shows children in that group are five times less likely to repeat a grade in school. She says the results also show they're less likely to have problems at home.
