A new Portuguese study examines the relationship between age and an individual’s satisfaction with their love life.

Researchers determined regular churchgoers, married people, or those who enjoy harmonious social ties are most satisfied with their love life.

“This also goes for people who are currently in love or who experience the commitment and sexual desire of their partners,” said Félix Neto and Maria da Conceição Pinto of the Universidade do Porto in Portugal.

Their findings are published in an article in the journal Applied Research in Quality of Life.

The survey also discovered that love life satisfaction among those aged 18 to 30 years of age is similar to that found among people aged 31 to 59.

The age when most people began to describe less satisfaction with their love lives is 60 years and over. According to the research, this is partially because that those of that age group see romance as less important to them.

Ron Rose, director of Faith Coaching Network, says the researchers don’t amply explore why regular churchgoers are more satisfied.

“I have found that Church attendance is a not the key, but it is a result of a less selfish and more self-less life style,” said Rose to Christian Headlines. “And, that awareness changes everything. We churchgoers believe there is something bigger than ourselves in this world. There is a great-shared adventure in that reality. That’s the good news.”
