Expense within a Relationship

I have been single for the majority of my entire life, but have been in a stable relationship within the past three years, and have noticed something fairly considerate, which I never even pondered before. What I have realised is, is that it’s much more expensive being single as opposed to be in a relationship.

Before I entered a relationship, I never would have thought this would have been the situation, but it is true in my experience. Previously, as I wasn’t in a relationship of my own, I would think about the relationships of the people around me, to see the money they spent on each other. The going out for meals together, the cinema, exchanging presents at times of celebration etc etc. This is the reason I use to believe it would be more pricey finding myself in a relationship, but this hasn’t been the outcome.

Firstly, when buying a house or renting, it’s obviously considerably more expensive doing it alone than with a partner, as by doing it on your own, you’re paying for 100% of everything, whereas when you go in with your partner, things could be 50/50. That is a massive potential saving.

When residing in an accommodation, you also have bills, which would include utility bills and council tax etc. Again, in the event you go it alone, you’re paying the complete amount yourself, but doing it along with your partner ends up with a 50/50 split.

Another expense is in auto insurance, as it’s known that single people generally have to pay more with regard to their motor insurance than those who declare that their in a relationship or married.

Another massive potential saving comes in the form of holidays, more specifically, the accommodation. With a partner, this will also be split 50/50 as virtually all hotels charge for rooms on per room basis, hence the cost is going to be split. And those who are single will miss out again, as not only will they be paying roughly around the same price for a single room as a double room, but the single room may also be considerably smaller in proportions also.

There is also the matter of meals, as it’s reported that men and women dine out more alone on average, maybe related to the unwillingness to eat alone, and the desire to socialise. On account of this, it’s reported that those who’re single spend more on food over the course of a year than people who find themselves in relationships.
