Four Kentucky cities listed for highest divorce rates in the nation

Valentine’s Day is usually dedicated to love and romance, but in Kentucky, things are reportedly not as happy and uplifting as some of the other states in the country.

According to a recent study by DatingNews.com, Kentucky has four of the top 20 cities in the nation in terms of highest divorce rates.

The four cities? Campbellsville (No. 7), Middlesboro (No. 9), Somerset (No. 12), and Mount Sterling (No. 17).

The site’s research is backed up by the U.S. Census Bureau’s marital status reports and their information for all areas across the nation related to the highest percentage of divorcees and the surrounding influences to the results (demographics, economic conditions, etc.)

The national divorce average for 2017 was 10.9 percent, while the list of top 20 cities in terms of divorce rates were all above 15 percent.

Nothing says “Happy Valentine’s Day” like high divorce rates in Kentucky!

    I’m confused by the term “metropolitan areas”. Have any of those guys ever been to those 4 “metropolitan areas” in Kentucky?
