Census figures put Maine in the top end of states with high divorce rates.

Maine is ranked with the second highest divorce rates in the country at 13.7%. Nevada ranks first at 14%. Nevada is a given, with it’s drive through weddings that probably don’t work out long after the booze wears off. Case and point: Britney Spears’ 24 hour marriage there.
