If a North Dakotan were to marry a non North Dakotan, which state is that outsider most likely going to be from?

That question, which you never had, was asked by TIME Magazine. And fortunately for you, there is now an answer to the question you never had.

According to TIME Magazine, North Dakota's "soul-state" is Minnesota. Interstate marriages between North Dakotans and Minnesotans are 11.2 percent more common than the national average.

That begs the question... if Minnesota is our "soul-state," is North Dakota the "soul-state" for other states?

Yes. North Dakota is the soul-state for Minnesota, South Dakota, and Montana. Our neighboring states can't get enough of that North Dakota nice!
