The state of Delaware has the highest number of marriage licenses per capita in the country.
It is also the only one in the nation where more than 50% of residents have a marriage license.
That’s a number that may not seem all that surprising given the state’s demographic makeup.
But a quick look at some state data shows that Delaware’s marriage licenses are not all that uncommon.
One of the most recent numbers we’ve seen for a large portion of the year comes from a Pew Research Center survey, conducted by the National Marriage Project.
In that survey, which we’re also republishing here, the percentage of registered voters who had a marriage certificate by the end of February 2018 was 54%.
That is not much more than the 51% reported by Pew.
But a closer look at the survey data reveals that there were many more married couples living in Delaware than that number.
About 3,000 people reported having a valid marriage certificate from the end-of-February period, which is a far cry from the 51.5% of people who have a valid license.
The other data shows similar patterns.
According to the Pew survey, the state of Virginia had the most marriages registered in January 2018, with 1,077.
That is far less than the 1,600 reported by the Pew data.
But while the number of married people in Delaware was not all at once, it is certainly close.
The Pew data showed that there was a median of about 2,200 couples in the state in February.
The median of those couples is still lower than the number in Utah, where 2,068 married people live.
So, as the state grows in population, more and more people are going to have a legal relationship.
But, according to data we’ve obtained from Pew, it doesn’t always work out that way.
The number of people in the United States who are married or in a relationship with a registered partner is at an all-time high.
