Bad news for late-middle-aged single people in Montana.

There are two ways you can look at their report on marriage. It's awesome that couples later in life are married and have someone to grow old with. That's great. It also means the dating pool for those in their mid 50's and up is pretty small.

As you can see from the graphic (above) a cluster of states in the upper midwest/west all had a high percentage of married couples over 55. With Maine being the lone eastern state with old married people.

Snowbird states have a higher percent of single seniors.

Not surprisingly, states that are popular for retirement ranked high on the study's list of states with the most divorced persons over 55. Nevada took the top spot, followed by New Mexico, Oregon, Puerto Rico, and Florida. So if you're looking for single cougars or sugar daddies, consider those states a better option for finding true love later in life.
