Idaho has 4th highest divorce rate

When people get married, they never plan on divorce. In Idaho, it's something that is very common.  "Many people are surprised to realize that Idaho actually has the fourth highest divorce rate in the country," said Michelle Crosby, founder and CEO of Boise based company Wevorce. Statistics show that the average age of a bride in Idaho is around 23 years old, the youngest in the country. The younger the age of the people getting married, the less likely the marriage is to last. Studies also show that Idaho has the most amicable divorces/KIVI. More here.

Question: Why do you think Idaho has a high divorce rate?
