State-by-State Divorce

The Pew Research Center compiled statistics on marriage and divorce rates across the country, and came out with this interactive comparison map.

Missouri has more people married, and more people divorced, than the national average.  Consequently, Missouri also has a higher-than-average percentage of people married 3 or more times (7% in Missouri versus 5% nationwide).

(There are also a number of interesting "Related Reports" on the sidebar of the Pew Research Center page.)
