Liberals Don't Marry
The New York Times has mapped where you are more likely and less likely to be married by the age of 26. How Your Hometown Affects Your Chances of Marriage shows there is a strong correlation between where you grow-up and your chances of marrying by 26.
It appears that growing up in a city can seriously effect your chances of marriage. Those who are raised in New York, San Francisco, Chicago, Boston and Washington are far less likely to get married. If you do want to grow-up in a city and still have a good chance of getting married then you should make sure you are raised in a Republican voting area. The map suggests that Phoenix, Salt Lake City and Fort Worth, some of the few metropolitan areas to vote Republican in 2012, are also cities where you are more likely to get married.
The Times map is accompanied by a chart which shows that marriage by 26 is far more likely among those who voted for Romney in 2012 than among those who voted for Obama.
