I mean relationship wise, before (dating) and then after (if married)
the upkeep and expenses, many men say girls are VARY expensive,
and that if you do not show the girl she is worth it now and then
by spending on her then she may dump you and move on.
I know not all girls are that way, but by what I seen MANY are.

If I were to look at how much money I've spent since I've been with my wife versus how little I would have spent if I'd been alone it would add up quick. Here's just the big things.

$138000 new house
$33000 new car
$10000 wedding

Add in roughly $700 per month in bills I wouldn't otherwise have, her constantly rotating wardrobe, and anything she has ever wanted to get for our girls. I'd say about a quarter million in five years. And I would gladly double or triple that. She's worth it. :heart: :lol:

I once saw a car bumper sticker saying:

"Marriage is Grand. Divorce is 100 grand."

I must be a very cheap girl, because I don't want any of those things.

A girl doesn't cost you money, you just pay for the affection and other service you receive for her. See it as an investment rather than as an expense. Basic economical principle "money can be exchanged for goods and services" :wink:

Honestly, I don't think it makes sense to calculate this. Expenses of life in general vary geographically, vary depending on one's lifestyle, and other than that if you have a really nice girl you should praise yourself lucky rather than thinking about finances :)

I don't know, I'm used to being on a small budget.

If it includes kids after marriage it's probably a lot. Women tend to do the buying for their children when you look at statistics in households.

Other than that, I have no clue.

I will say my sister's been taking care of lazy husband for a long time now. So she would probably be the minority of this study.

I know there are a lot of women out there with extravagant things. I go to a mall or something and am shocked out how much a single girl will buy!! 8O

Sometimes I wonder if it's her job or her boyfriend/hubby.

Wow, according to rekoil's statistics :lol: ...I was cheap, but then I'm not average.

Didn't like eating out.
Didn't even care if I went out.
Didn't want jewelry, new clothes, or presents.
No new car, no new house, no big wedding.

$15,000 house
$400.00 car I came with
$75.00 at the JP office

Relationships aren't cheap period though...with me it's always either cost me money or a some of my sanity. What is the price of sanity anyways? :wink:

Same here. I shop at thrift shops and second hand stores for nearly everything. I never could understand why people spent so much on weddings, either.

^Include me in on that girls.

I'm poor trailer trash...(No pun intended but I do live in a trailer down by a lake.)

Use to spend it like it was water till my dad taught me a thing or two about money when I went into debt.

There's a quiz somewhere where you can measure how much you're worth.
