Montana (9)

It stands in the middle of the pack for its marriage rate, at 18.7 per 1,000 residents, and for divorces, at 10.1 out of 1,000 residents annually cutting ties. Men tend to marry younger women: Montana has one of the widest spreads in the nation, with the median age at first marriage 29 for males and 25.8 for females.
