Georgetown University’s Center for Applied Research in the Apostolate has released a 187-page report on the state of Catholic marriages.

A couple findings: 53 % of Catholics aged 18 and older are married; two-thirds of those folks were married in the church.

72 % of married Catholics have a Catholic spouse and, on average, adult Catholics have two children.

72 % of unmarried Catholics who want to get married say they want the church to marry them.

I’ll leave you to peruse the rest of the report.
