NORTH TEXAS – The number of Americans who have always been single and will likely never marry is at a historic high.

According to a 2014 Pew Research report, “about 20% of Americans older than 25 had always been single in 2012, up from 9% in 1960.” And if things trend in this direction, their analysis suggests that 25% of millennials will never marry.

Though wedding bells might not be ringing as often throughout the country as a whole, there are still some places where marriage is very much alive and thriving, including right here in North Texas.

Two local cities top a list put together by MooseRoots. Here’s how it breaks down:
