It's no secret that people are likely becoming less and less religious with each generation. Even if you have good memories of growing up in a religious community, you might decide not to continue the tradition in adulthood.
But why? A recent Reddit thread asked the simple question, "Why did you stop going to church?" Everyone from former Mormons to lapsed Catholics weighed in to explain why they broke the generations-old tradition of going to church every Sunday.
My father lost his job and the only work he could get involved travel, which meant he couldn't make the Sunday service. Even though my parents gave to the church monthly, all the support we got was 'prayers that he found a job closer to home'. As a teen I was also asked by church elders why father thought making money for his family was more important than attending the church. - hmfiddlesworth
