Who knew, right?

CreditDonkey.com took a look at major US cities—those with populations over one million—and has just declared the top ten best cities in the country for newlyweds to live. Their determining factors:

  • Percentage of married couples, because married couples who are buddies with other married couples stay married couples, apparently.
  • Divorce rate, because not being surrounded by divorce is a more pleasant environment in which to be coupled.
  • Average credit score, because everyone knows married people fight about money.
  • Average hours residents work, because when couples spend time together instead of staring at computer screens and being angry at meetings, life is happier.

And lo and behold, Philly placed sixth. The study found us to not work like crazy and to have a pretty low divorce rate—and they found us to be “proactive” about our finances, causing less stress and screaming/throwing-stuff fights about money.

Not bad! Get the rest of the list here.
