A Marriage Miscellany

The Pew Research Center recently released a national report on marriage, which included this nifty map of the 50 states.  Just roll your cursor over any state, and you’ll instantly see a snapshot of key statistics.  The stats include the percentage of couples who are currently married, as well as the percentage of adults who have been married three or more times.

The N.Y. Times’ blog Economix provides a brief summary of the key findings. For example, men in New York and New Jersey are the least likely to be currently divorced. North Dakota is the state where women are least likely to be divorced.

Yet one stat plays right into stereotypes. Nevada has the highest share of men and women who are currently divorced.
