Pew Research center finds that Arkansas and Oklahoma have higher rates of divorce than states like New York

It seems that when compared with states like New York, Oklahomans have a higher rate of divorce and that may be due to the fact that people in the midwestern states like Oklahoma tend to marry younger, and also to marry more often (they tend to have multiple marriages) than they do in New York and other states on the Eastern seaboard.¬† This from a fairly recent study by the Pew Research Center. Another argument for delaying marriage till one is older and more mature, and is ready to truly handle the “commitment.” Speaking of New York, this may surprise many but New York has a relatively low divorce rate when compared to the rest of the country. Wonder why that would be so in a city that “never sleeps?”
