According to Wikepedia, Commack, in Suffolk County, New York, is a census designated place that corresponds somewhat with the hamlet by the same name in various other towns, including Huntington and Smithtown. The name for the CDP - "Commack", was taken from the Secatogue Native Americans who originally lived along the southern shore of Long Island, between Bayport and Copiague. The lands in the center of the island were named "Winnecomac" by the Secatogue, which roughly translates to "pleasant lands". For the people who live in Commack, the name is highly accurate - filled with thick oak forests, wildlife, and plants. However, as beautiful as Commack may be, it's important to remember that behind the scenic exterior, real people are living their lives, and suffering from common issues such as family disputes, divorce, and other legal issues.

As of the census conducted in 2010, there were 11,907 households, 36,124 people, and approximately 9,895 families residing in Commack, according to Wikipedia.com. Since then, further research into demographics from city-data.com has revealed that 63.1% of Commack residents are married, whereas 5.6% are divorced.
