I know one minute seems so short. Sorry about that, but I think too many people could type all 50 states in 2 minutes, and since this is only 25 states, I thought it would be more of a challenge to make it 1 minute. I was curious about this after seeing something on TV. It was just interesting to me to look up this info. :)

I forgot to add that if you think I shoud add a minute, let me know. Thanks. :)

Please add a minute.

Okay, I'll add a minute and see how it goes. :)

Thank you, triviahappy, for creating this quiz. It's funny how people like to make jokes about Arkansas, Kentucky and West Virginia and they're not even on this list. I've read that the state with the highest % of first-cousin marriages is Massachusetts.

I've always heard Arkansas, West Virginia, Kentucky, and whatever other states people think are backwards outlawed cousin marriage because it was too prevalent. The states where it's legal didn't think to outlaw it as it rarely happened.
