States Where the Most People Are Getting Married

Do you find yourself constantly lost in a barrage of Facebook engagement notifications, wedding invitations and semi-formal attire? Alternatively, do you find yourself wishing there were more married couples in your area? If so, you may want to consider moving.

Although the number of people getting married has declined in the past decade, some states have higher nuptial rates than others.

Experts at FindTheHome, a real estate intelligence site powered by Graphiq, analyzed 2015 Centers for Disease Control and Prevention data in order to rank the 50 states and Washington D.C. by the number of marriages per 1,000 people. Ties were broken by state population totals.

Hawaii and Nevada top the list, probably due to marriage hopefuls in search of a beautiful destination wedding, or a quick ceremony in sin city. In fact, Nevada's marriage rate is about six times as high as the lowest marriage rate state on this list.

Whether you are happily married, looking to tie the knot soon or decidedly single, click through the slides to see which states have the most people saying "I do."

Note: California marriage data includes non-licensed marriages.
