Being Married is Cheaper!

Ladies — looking for a way to encourage him to get off his butt and propose?

Show him that being single costs a whole lot more!

 

While everyone talks about how expensive weddings can be these days, the price tag on one’s nuptials is a mere pittance compared with the cost of remaining single

 

In the Atlantic Monthly’s “The High Price of Being Single in America,” authors Lisa Arnold and Christina Campbell argue that compared to a married woman of the same income, over the course of her lifetime a single woman could pay an extra $1,022,096 — just for being single.

 

Other than a second income, the single woman misses out on tax breaks and extra Social Security benefits, plus savings in health and housing costs, for starter.

 

All of these figures are great, but let it be known, I’m still going to take my sweet time.
