PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – A new study ranks the City of Brotherly Love one of the best for newlywed love.

According to a report from, Philadelphia is the sixth best place in the country for newlyweds to live.

So, how did the company come up with its list? First, they considered only U.S. cities with populations over 1 million. From there, the rankings were determined by looking at the percentage of married couples, the divorce rate, the average credit score and the number of hours city residents worked each week.

Philadelphia earned the sixth spot largely due to its low divorce rate, “proactive” attitude towards finances and relatively low number of hours per week worked (resulting in couples being able to spend more time together).

And the best city for newlyweds? Atlanta, which had the highest number of married households of any city on the list.
