Greenville ranks #3 in the RealAge top 10 cities for a happy marriage report

3. Greenville, SC

The South may have some of the highest divorce rates in the country, but happy marriages abound in Greenville. The state boasts the lowest divorce rate in the South and at 3.2% is below the national average. Set among the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Greenville is home to charming wedding spots. While married couples here stick together, they would do well to team up to eat healthier diets and get more exercise.  The city ranks high for cholesterol and hypertension levels. Unfortunately, these combined aging factors can outweigh the health benefits of a happy union as Greenville ranks in the Top 10 Oldest Cities in America. “Cities high in marriage are sometimes the least healthy cities,” says Dr. Roach.
