With the release and hacking of the names from Ashley Madison, a list was made  from the states that spend the most money on cheating on their spouses. And yes, like you, we wonder how North Dakota stacks up against the other states in the union.


We've learned several things since the hacking of the website.  A graph was produced showing each state organized by how many dollars they spent on the website per capita. Most of the cheaters from the website work for the government since over 15,000 of the e mail addresses were associated with the government or military.

Alabama leads the charge as the most cheating state in the country. Other states in the top include-

  • Colorado
  • District of Columbia
  • New York
  • Arkansas
  • New Jersey

States that are the most faithful or at the bottom of the list include-

  • South Dakota
  • Mississippi
  • Idaho
  • Maine
  • West Virginia
  • Idaho

North Dakota ranked 33rd on the list.

Several things stand out on this list. I've never know Alabama to be #1 for anything. Mississippi spends the least, while right next door in Alabama spends the most. The other thing I've noticed is that we certainly have many stressed out people this week, and have you also noticed the number of high profile people getting divorced lately? Coincidence? I think not!
