Divorce is common in the United States and many people research what factors might play into the rates of divorce in America.

The team at LLCAttorney.com did their part by researching which cities have the highest and lowest rates of divorce, using estimates 1-year post marriage based on U.S. Census data from 2022. Their results showed that the city of Medford, Oregon had the highest rates of any metropolitan area in the U.S. This is the fourth largest city in Oregon,15.8% of the population are divorcees. Right behind Medford was Dothan, Alabama with a 15.1% divorce rate.

On the other side of the issue, there are plenty of cities with low divorce rates. Provo-Orem, Utah has a population of only 5.7% divorcees. This is an area with a high Mormon population. The religion’s discouragement of divorce likely accounts for these low numbers. Other low divorce cities include Laredo, TX, College Station-Bryan, TX, San Jose-Sunnyvale-Santa Clara, CA, and Merced, CA.
