Charlotte ranks #7 on the RealAge Top Cities for a Happy Marriage list

7. Charlotte, NC

Southern hospitality overflows in North Carolina’s “Queen City.” Charlotte hosts the country’s largest Renaissance-themed festival and showcases culture and charm at every corner, giving couples plenty of opportunities to relax and connect. And while Charlotte ranks high when it comes to marital bliss, couples do have some health factors to overcome, given the city’s high smoking rates and low rankings in heart health. Couples can extend their years together by eating more fruits and veggies and chucking the cigarettes. In fact, stopping smoking can add 3.6 years to your life if you’re a man and 5.2 years to your life if you’re a woman by reducing the risk of heart disease, cancer, and a host of other health problems.
