Big photos below.
Most of us assume the divorce capitals of the United States must be big cities populated by rich, beautiful people -- the type who are always looking to upgrade. But no: Data from the American Community Survey collected by the Huffington Post and The Daily Beast shows that none of the top ten places is a giant metropolis, with two of them from Colorado -- but not Denver, even though it wound up in our recent list of the top ten mistress cities. Count the photo-illustrated finalists below.

Number 10:

Your right again not every man nor woman does a darn thing. You are talking to a woman and im sorry my experiences nor observations do not reflect yours. However i was not putting anyone down much like you are attempting to do to me. Typical male you are. O o o p s

Very judgmental way of thinking Kathy. YOu cant categorize a gender or your wrong. Not all men do this and not all women do that. Its just stupid to say those things in my opinion.

Alot of men like fat woman. Dont keep your woman in a barn if you do not want a fat woman. There are plenty of woman who take care of their bodies before during and after landing a man and giving birth. And yes you never know who your dealing with . And people get sex changes and butt injections and Boobie jobs.

Suuuuurrreee Kathy! In Junction, a lot of the women blow up and become cows after they land a man. And Pueblo is home to some of Americas most talented sex change physicians. You never know who your really messing with.

yep blame all them men. They are all the same. Theres no such thing as a skanky woman.

Probably the same as every where . . Men seem to need to be intimate with more than one woman. But men dont want their woman to be with other guys. Woman are kind of monogamous and when they realize they are turning down other guys because they are monogamous and they find out their men are cheating possibly exposing them to diseases . i guess you can kind of figure that rest out.

Who wouldn't divorce their spouse for making them move to Pueblo?!

Not to nit pick , but what you are showing is the divorced population. That does not mean these people were married and divorced in these cities. It just that divorced people live there now, maybe these are good cities to live in to get away from a divorce ? Just saying
