This study examines the influence of religious homogamy, religious affiliation and church attendance on personal and structural marital commitment. The data were obtained from a random sample of 179 married couples [358 married individuals]. Controlling for several major background variables, it was found that church attendance, duration of marriage and satisfaction with family life are the major predictors of structural commitment. Church attendance was likewise a major predictor of personal commitment. The findings are reviewed in the context of the extant research evidence and the indicators used.
