A new study found it costs approximately $381,000 to have a happy marriage. Here’s how it breaks down...
$30,000 goes toward a wedding & honeymoon.
$2,000 a year for date nights. That would be three dates a month at around $55 each.
$800 a year for nights in. That’s three nights a month.
$435 a year for gifts and surprises.
$680 a year for jewelry.
$277 a year for lingerie.
$232 a year on clothes and shoes for special occasions.
$922 a year on weekends away.
$2,400 a year on vacations.
That works out to $7,746 total every year.
Over 45 years, plus the wedding, it adds up to about $381,000.
