DC is Doctor of Chiropractic, she/he mentions patients (among other things ).

PS OP adultery could even create some buisness for you, sleeping on the couch or in the dog house can't be good for the spine!

If you want a low crime rate, don't go to Phoenix. the news here is depressing as hell. murder, shooting, rape, kidnapping, robbery, shooting, car accident, shooting, rape, assault, ETC ETC. EVERY day. *EVERY*
i quit watching it after being here a year or two.
police choppers and news choppers everywhere too.

safer areas in the metro area are like sun city west, east mesa, and north scottsdale (but scottsdale will *not* fit in your price range on houses) don't get me wrong there's good sections in almost every zone of the city. but there's bad sections too.

aside from the crime. the metro area has fairly good growth depending on your business. but let me tell you, if you are retail or a restaurant, it's not a good time. people are goin belly up all over the city. retail space sits empty everywhere.
recreation and culture and shopping wise you will never run out of things to do or places to go. it's a huge city after all. with all the pros and cons there-in.
I really can't comment on any other Arizona cities as far as living there, as I haven't. I've visited many places. but the Phoenix area is where I've lived.

as for the adultery free issue lol. it wouldn't matter WHERE you went. there are no adultery free zones. lol. thanks for that chuckle.

Phoenix actually has a fairly low crime rate for a city it's size, and the suburbs are especially low. Gilbert is the 17th safest city in the country, and Surprise, Goodyear, and many of the other suburbs have a crime rate very close to Gilbert's.

Good heavens. There are so many more safe areas (no area is crime free) than just the ones you listed. If you only watch Fox local news, I can see getting a somewhat skewed view of crime in this city, as they seem to love to feature it.

To the OP- As far as "low adultery" I have no idea what makes you ask, and no idea how to answer that question. That's something that happens everywhere, and is not impacted by what area of town it happens in. Where it happens more, or less, I'm sure no one is keeping statistics.

Agreed. Tempe is safe, too, if you take the area immediately around the University, where most of the property crime in the city takes place, out of the equation.

Not making a statement regarding Phoenix crime in particular but the fact is the local news in EVERY city WAYYYYYYY overcovers that kind of news. Unless there is something really big happening, local news ALWAYS leads off with crime stories. It's all part of the way news sensationalizes everything (especially crime). It's really one of my strongest pet peeves - and it irritates the hell out of me because it's turning the average American into someone ALWAYS AFRAID.

As I said, I can't specifically speak about Phoenix but I KNOW that here in Seattle if one judged how bad crime was based on the local news stories one would think the city was in a state of chaos - when in fact crime here today is FAR lower than it was 40 years ago when I first moved here. In fact, it's lower than nearly ANY TIME since that day.

Do NOT EVER make a judgement about the crime rate by listening to local media news. It will NEVER give you an accurate assessment.

The "party life" at ASU (and its reputation as a party school has declined over the years, as its academic standing increases) really has very little or anything to do with "adultery", and to the extent it does, certainly should not affect anyone who is not involved with the university (staff or student) at all. Good luck to you.
