How Often North Dakotans Marry More Than Once
Most people plan to get married once. Some people plan to never get married. Sometimes plans change.
The website Overflow Solutions put together a visualization to show how many people get married, zero times, once, twice, and more than twice in each state.
Here in the Peace Garden State, the majority of individuals get married just once. In fact, 55 percent of North Dakotans have been married just once and only one state has a higher percentage.
The state that has the most singular marriages is Minnesota but they barely surpassed North Dakota. 55.3 percent of Minnesota residents have been married once.
Coincidentally, many times North Dakotans and Minnesotans just go ahead and marry each other.
The data shows that 32.4 percent of North Dakotans have never been married, 10.4 percent of North Dakotans have married twice, and 2.2 percent of North Dakotans have been married three times or more.
The state with the most people who are not married is not a state per se as that honor belongs to Washington D.C. The state with the most people who have been married twice is Arkansas. Arkansas is also the state with the most people who have been married three or more times.
If you ever find yourself falling in love with someone from Arkansas, run away. Stick to the Minnesotans.
