Break out the champagne, call your local florist and turn up the lite rock—Valentine's Day approaches! For this week's infographic, we decided to look at rates of marriage, separation and divorce to determine where love seems to last in America.
We looked at combined markets where the balance of population is between the ages of 25 and 59 (which protected against skewed results from college towns and retirement communities). Next, we sorted this list to find the markets with the lowest numbers of citizens who have been married, and then separated/divorced.
This is a no judgment zone
We don't claim this to be a perfect model, as many people across America elect to stay unmarried or are not legally allowed to marry—and plenty more are happier once they have separated or divorced. Still, we hope you'll have a bit of fun with us as we open a box of overpriced truffles, turn up our Foreigner playlist and check out where love lasts in America.
