Wacky Relationship Stat of The Day

Did you know….

If you live in a red state, you’re 27 percent more likely to get divorced than if you live in a blue state.

Maybe that’s because red-state couples traditionally marry younger—and the younger the partners, the riskier the marriage. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the states with the lowest median age at marriage are Utah, Arkansas, Kentucky, and Oklahoma.

    Not sure what the source was, but in conversation recently someone told me that she read that men who married the first woman they were sexually intimate with tended to stay married more often than men who did not. Would be interesting to investigate further.

    Love these wacky relationship stats–even if I’m not always sure what to make of them. Keep ’em coming.
