Marriage rates in the United States in 2017, by state

Marriage rates in the U.S. 2017, by state In 2017, Nevada had the highest marriage rate in the United States, with 28.6 marriages per 1,000 residents. Hawaii had the second highest marriage rate, at 15.3 marriages per 1,000 residents.
The falling marriage rate

Perhaps unsurprisingly, the marriage rate in the United States has fallen since 1990, although it has leveled off in the past decade. This means that fewer and fewer people are getting married than in years past, particularly as views about marriage have changed in the U.S. However, despite changing perceptions about marriage and a falling marriage rate, there were more married couples in the United States in 2018 than there were in 1960.

First comes love, then comes marriage

Weddings and marriage have changed in the United States in recent years as people have been staying single longer, and especially gay marriage and inter-racial marriage have become more socially acceptable. The changing face of America means that love and relationships are changing as well, and what is socially acceptable within a relationship will continue to change with it.
