Could people marrying later in life be effecting religion?

Back in “the old days” people married at 20, 21, 22, had a baby right away. Got the child baptized, took the kid to Sunday school, they were in the religious system quickly again after their teenage years.  Many lived at home with parents up until the day they were married so there was continuation of church attendance from adolescence to adulthood. Now a lot of people are single till 30, 35, even their 40’s. So that means they have several years living on their own (and let’s face it most young people don’t want to go to church by themselves). So many stoppped going to church probably for 10, 25 years from high school graduation until marriage. When marriage finally happens going to church seems like the distant past, something they did in childhood. They suddenly decide “hey I lived without this stuff for so long, I don’t see need to come back”.

    Many things affect religion, including religion itself. 

    Marrying later in life surely affects religion as well.

    affecting religion, not effecting religion.

    People are better educated, they don't need bogeymen in the sky to explain things.

    "affecting" 

    Not in any direct manner that we here can foresee.
