If you want to get married, go west.

New data from the census bureau shows that states in the South and West have the most marriages.

They happen at a rate of about 19 per 1,000 people a year.

But those same areas lead in divorces in 2009...with about ten per 1000 people.

Meanwhile, men and women are getting married later in life.

The median age for men has gone from 22 in 1970, to 28.

And for women, it is now 26...up from 20 in 1970.
