Marriages in the U.S. have seen a significant rebound in 2024 after slowing throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Across the nation, 36 states and the District of Columbia reported marriage rates in 2022 that either matched or exceeded the levels seen in 2019, before the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic,” the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s public affairs specialist Brian Tsai wrote in a blog post in March.

States with the highest number of marriages included Nevada, Hawaii, Montana, Utah, and Arkansas, the report noted. The District of Columbia also had a very high marriage rate. These states are where the marriages were performed, not necessarily where the happy new couples plan to live full-time.

Positive Changes For America

The rate of divorce dropped a little over the same period of time, following a consistent trend. Married couples are said to be thriving in the U.S. in 2025. ““[W]e’ve actually seen divorce come down since 1980,” sociologist Brad Wilcox told Washington Watch in February. “A lot of people think that one in two marriages will end in divorce. But the reality actually is that most marriages today go the distance. And that’s the good news, because our kids are more likely to flourish when they’re raised by their own married parents. We’ve actually seen an uptick in the share of kids who are being raised by their own married parents.” (LEARN MORE: Good News: Two-Parent Families Are On The Rise!)

Why Isn’t This Data Being Shared By The Mainstream?

Happiness, contentment, peace, and love are all achievable. And we have the answers on how to spread this truth across the world. But the more we hide the facts and our voices are silenced, the more hate and pain spread.
