According to a Canadian study, the cost of "love" is 72,082.57 CAD or about 57,574 USD for a two year relationship.

...not including time, breakup and divorce. Should the poor receive financial support for the expenses with a valid prescription for "love"? ;)
In another study it was found that 99% of most other studies contained made up statistics.

To me---money is no object whatsoever----and I'm so generous with women that some of my own friends call me a sucker----but $57,574 spent on the average 2 year relationship is a crock. Unless you buy them a Jaguar in that first two years.

[@539720,anythingoes477] To be honest, the price includes wedding, which in their calculation was about half the price, but I already couldn't fit a succinct description in the question... Also that seems to sort of assume after wedding you pay nothing :p
[@446085,Faust76] I can't imagine marrying that fast for one thing. Take your time---get to know---travel---live together a while--enjoy life together before life buries you both under the responsibilities of marriage. Marriage should be ONCE---not done "because I was lonely"--or any other equally weak reason. Since it is done once for life---surely that should be reason enough to take a while to be sure. If more were sure---we'd not have a 55% divorce rate in the first year. When you see those figures---you KNOW they didn't take enough time to really see what they were getting. Slow down....do it right.

🤔 Does this include step kids?
Lets add that to the equation...
Wait.
It's so wrong.
Financial Armageddon.
OMFG No.
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
Actually there's one minor error in your summary, under Trudeau's time in office $72,082.57 CAD will be about $ 142.67 USD...
