A new study found it costs about $381,000 over 45 years, to have a happy marriage. That’s including date nights, presents, vacations and the wedding. It basically comes down to a little more than $7,500 per year. Here’s the breakdown for you:

1.  $30,000 for a wedding and honeymoon.

2.  $2,000 for a year of date nights.

3.  $800 a year for nights in, including the cost of a Netflix subscription, movie downloads, drinks and food.

4.  $435 a year for presents and surprise gifts.

5.  $680 a year for jewelry.

6.  $277 a year for lingerie.

7.  $232 a year on clothes and shoes for special occasions.

8.  $922 a year on weekends away.

9.  $2,400 a year on vacations.

Making for a grand total of $7,746 total each year.  I doubt my husband and I spend this much, we definitely spent less than $30,000 on our wedding, so we’re already ahead, yippee!
