U.S. Marriage and Divorce Stats

You may be interested to read the marriage and divorce data  from the U.S. Census Bureau for 2008 (the most recent data available).

  • 52% of men in the U.S. are currently married; 9% are currently divorced
  • 48% of women in the U.S. are currently married; 12% are divorced

Idaho (apparently not just known for potatoes) has the highest percentage of married men and women. You can view the detailed marriage and divorce data by state here.
