Statistics Shed Light on Marriage and Divorce

The U.S. Census Bureau has released statistics on its American Survey Data on Marriage and Divorce, and the numbers are very interesting. Divorce rates are higher in the south, while residents of northeastern states had lower rates for marriage and divorce than other parts of the country. Men are more willing to remarry than women following a divorce, while more women are widows than men become widowers. Another interesting figure was that there are more people in the 25-34 age group who are unmarried than married. Keep in mind that these numbers represent real people.
