Marriage Turns People into the Biggest Spenders

b_250_0_16777215_00_images_obgrabber_2013-11_d1ee9ec549.jpgPurestock/Thinkstock (NEW YORK) -- It might be debatable whether married people are happier than everyone else but Gallup learned one thing is for sure: they outspend other Americans. In a survey of over 135,000 adults, Gallup says married individuals, on average, spend $102 daily. That’s compared to couples living together where the average spent per partner is $98 a day.

Meanwhile, the poll says that divorced individuals spend an average of $74 on a daily basis while people who’ve never tied the knot average about $67 in expenses per day, followed by widowed people at $62.

What’s more, married folks in all age groups were still tops in spending compared to all other marital status categories.

Although the marriage rate in the U.S. has fallen over the past several decades, Gallup maintains there’s “a pent-up demand for marriage” that could finally reverse the trend.
