Top 15 U.S. Cities with the Worst Millennial Divorce Rates

Surprisingly, millennials are divorcing at a rate much lower than that of the previous generation, ending a long streak of rising divorce rates. Still, there are certain areas where divorce remains strong even if it has declined overall. These are the top 15 worst cities for millennial divorce, ranked from lowest divorce rate to highest. Here, millennials are defined as persons born after 1980.

Seattle

• Divorces per 100 married: 2.9

• Divorces per 1,000 population: 5.9

The rain city comes in at #15 on the worst cities for millennials and divorce. Despite millennials being about 0.5 points lower than the overall city’s divorce rate, they still hold at 15 percent more than the national average.

Baltimore

• Divorces per 100 married: 2.9

• Divorces per 1,000 population: 4.5

Baltimore comes in at #14 on this list. Ironically, the state of Maryland all together is number 5 on the United States lowest divorce rates, since 2012.

Orlando

• Divorces per 100 married: 2.9

• Divorces per 1,000 population: 5

At #13, Orlando matches its home in Florida with one of the worst cumulative divorce records in the country. Orlando’s millennial rate is 13 percent higher than the national average since 2013.

Dallas

• Divorces per 100 married: 3

• Divorces per 1,000 population: 7

D-Town ranks in at #12 on the list with high divorces per capita both in couples married and total divorces.

Miami

• Divorces per 100 married: 3

• Divorces per 1,000 population: 4.7

Like its Northern counterpart Orlando, Miami fills the 12th spot. Including divorces among all ages, Miami ranks at #2 on the worst cities for divorce in the United States.

Atlanta

• Divorces per 100 married: 3

• Divorces per 1,000 population: 5.9

Although making #11, Atlanta’s total divorce rate has fallen about 2 percentage points since 1990. For millennials, the city is still a danger in the realm of marriage.

Minneapolis

• Divorces per 100 married: 3

• Divorces per 1,000 population: 6

The state of Minnesota has seen its long-term divorce rate slip just under 50 percent overall. Being the largest metropolitan area in the state however, Minneapolis makes a future home for married millennials a little unsettling.

St. Louis

• Divorces per 100 married: 3.1

• Divorces per 1,000 population: 5.6

The Gateway to the West sits at #9. It is yet another city ranked that is likewise the most populated in its respective state.

Detroit

• Divorces per 100 married: 3.1

• Divorces per 1,000 population: 4.5

Astoundingly enough, half of Detroit’s total population has never been married. That doesn’t seem to put a strong enough dent in its divorce record, especially among millennial couples, as it ranks at #8.

San Antonio

• Divorces per 100 married: 3.2

• Divorces per 1,000 population: 7.0

The western counterpart of Dallas in the state of Texas has an identical divorce rate among total population compared to Dallas. However, the divorces per capita of couples married rank this higher at #7.

Riverside

• Divorces per 100 married: 3.2

• Divorces per 1,000 population: 6.5

One of two cities in southern California on this list, Riverside takes the 6th spot.

Denver

• Divorces per 100 married: 3.4

• Divorces per 1,000 population: 7.4

Making the only cut out of the four 4-corner states, Denver takes the first spot in the top five. A judge in New Mexico can attest to its upper neighbor’s high divorce rate. A Salt Lake City divorce lawyer next door can even attest to Denver’s negative divorce reputation.

San Diego

• Divorces per 100 married: 3.5

• Divorces per 1,000 population: 7.0

While many young millennials flock to SD for strong job opportunities, fashion, and the neighboring ocean, the marriage atmosphere isn’t so welcoming.

Tampa

• Divorces per 100 married: 3.7

• Divorces per 1,000 population: 6.3

The addition of Tampa at #2 makes Florida the most frequented state on this list, making up a fifth of the total rankings.

Portland

• Divorces per 100 married: 3.9

• Divorces per 1,000 population: 8.1

It’s official, Portland takes the cake as the worst city for millennial divorce, with high numbers in total as well as per capita.

While millennial divorce trends seem to be reversing the course of rising divorce rates in the US, there are still key areas where rates remain strong. Florida, Texas, and California should all be taken into consideration before putting a ring on it.
