North Carolina Ranks #3 Destination and Departure for Men after Divorce


Divorce, which can be a seismic life shift, often leads to a separation of finances and one party moving to a new home. According to U.S. Census Bureau data, 26% of women and 23% of men moved into a new home the same year they got divorced.

Some even moved out of state, perhaps for new career opportunities or proximity to support systems. MagnifyMoney researchers used the Census Bureau’s American Community Survey to analyze the number of men and women who were divorced in the 12 months prior to the survey and who moved in that same period.

According to the results, North Carolina was ranked as the 3rd most popular destination for divorced men and the 7th most popular destination for divorced women.
