B&B 38 Cost of being single vs coupled

Another Valentine’s Day has passed, which begs the question, is it less expensive to be single or in a relationship? Not just on Valentine’s Day, but in general. Do couples spend more money or do single people spend more money trying to get couple-y?

We compare single and living alone to single and living with roommates to coupled and living separately to coupled and living together, and of course, where does being married fall into this whole thing?

So whether you’re reeling from what it costs to have a Valentine or wishing you had one in the first place, see what it costs you all year round.
