Blue Values

Guess which state has the lowest divorce rate in the country.

One of the Bible Belt states? Wrong! It's Massachusetts,
the most liberal state in the country. Not only does Massachusetts have fewer divorces per capita than any other state in the union, they also have the highest rate of high school and college graduation.

Wow! Those blue staters must be doing something right!

The lowest divorce rates are largely in the blue states: the Northeast and the upper Midwest. Meanwhile states like Kentucky, Mississippi and Arkansas that voted overwhelmingly for constitutional amendments to ban gay marriage have some of the highest divorce rates in the country.
