Florida is a miss in top 10 states for happy marriage. Which states have the happiest marriages in America? Well, apparently, NOT Florida. A recent study conducted by Mixbook surveyed 3,000 Americans and has revealed some interesting wedded bliss findings. Check below for the top 10 states where people are most happy in their marriages and some other fascinating statistics related to marriage in America.

But what about the states with the lowest percentage of happy marriages? Unfortunately, North Dakota and Montana are tied at the bottom of the list, with only 33% of respondents in each state reporting that they are happily married.

Is this crazy? More than half of Americans surveyed (53%) believe that a married couple can be happy living separately from one another. The study also found that the median age at first marriage in America is increasing. In 2021, the median age for men was 30.4 years, and for women, it was 28.1 years.

So, how can couples maintain a happy and healthy relationship? Communication, quality time, appreciation, forgiveness, support, teamwork, and intimacy are all essential components of a fulfilling marriage. Mixbook
