You'd think a place like New York, teeming with actors, gazelle-like models and other beautiful temptations, would be Divorce Central. (Certainly, some speak of it as a den of iniquity; I, on the other hand, just think it's a pretty damn fascinating place in which to live.) But according to the New York Post, "New York state had one of the lowest divorce rates in the nation last year, according to new Census figures. Only New Jersey and North Dakota had rates lower than New York state's 8.4 percent divorce rate in 2008, a number that dropped even lower in Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island."
It just goes to show: You can't judge a city by its glossy, shiny, Sex-and-the-City cover.
