People don’t get married thinking, “This is a beautiful first wedding,” and that’s probably for the best. Anyone thinking that should probably give back the ring and head home from the planning process and call it quits. No one gets married expecting their marriage to end in divorce, but it does happen – a lot. It seems that most marriages end in divorce these days, which is why it’s always such a surprise to others to learn that my husband and I have been married 10 years in a few weeks, and that we’re among the ‘shortest’ married couples in our group of friends (all of whom are married, and for longer than 10 years) and we’re all in our early 30s. Maybe it’s because birds of a feather tend to flock together, or maybe it’s where we live or the fact that we make our marriages a priority. Either way, we do know that there are some states that have a very high divorce rate, and we think that you should know which ones are the worst for married couples.
