Magazine calls Cheyenne nation's divorce capitol

Laramie, WY – The number of people getting unhitched in Cheyenne is getting the city some national attention.
Men's Health magazine has named the city the most divorce prone in the country, dubbing it "Splitsville". Cheyenne's top ranking is based on the number of failed marriages as well as the state's relatively lax divorce laws and the number of licensed marriage and family therapists.
Unlike some states, Wyoming doesn't require couples to wait for a set time before a divorce is granted and people only need to live in the state for 60 days before filing for a split.
Family law attorney Dameione Cameron says it's possible to have a divorce finalized in 21 days if there's nothing to dispute.
