Time reports a recent study shows Mississippi is the most compatible with Louisiana when it comes to marriages. The study used data compiled from research on 116 million interstate marriages.

Louisiana is also compatible with Texas, where interstate marriages are 4.40 times more common than the national average. Mississippi is compatible with Tennessee and Alabama, as well.
