Want to get rich? Stay married

Riding in an elevator today I saw this headline come up on screen… those who stay married on average have double the income of those who are single or divorced.

What do you know, 1 + 1 = 2 after all.

That aside, the dual meaning of the headline struck me more – getting and staying married certainly leads to a richer life, even if that’s not the case financially.

One response to “Want to get rich? Stay married

  1. Of course, some people find that to be the case even when the significant other doesn’t work outside of the home, which is my situation: not only am I richer personally, but my financial situation is better as well.
