Newlyweds, do you think Boston is a "great" city to live?
We recently ranked 3rd in CreditDonkey.com's survey determining the 10 "best cities for newlyweds to live," coming in behind Atlanta and San Jose. According to the survey, Boston wins bragging rights for having low divorce rates (8.9%) and high credit scores (average of 702). We also work less, at an average of 34.3 hours a week. Being the capital of the first state to legalize gay marriage also makes Boston an attractive choice for same-sex newlyweds.
In deciding its 10 best, CreditDonkey looked at U.S. cities with populations over 1 million, and considered factors like percentage of married couples in the area, local divorce rates, average credit scores, and average number of hours worked per week.
So, living around other married couples with good credit is the key to wedded bliss? I beg to differ. It should be wherever the couple is happiest, right?
