Those that say “I do” spend more money than any other demographic.
Those Americans that have never married spend significantly less than married Americans — a statistic that, according to Gallup, suggests the U.S. economy would fare better if more Americans were to tie the knot.
Married Americans reportedly spend $102 per day compared to $98 and $74 among those in domestic partnerships and divorced couples, respectively.
Single Americans spend $67 per day and widowed Americans spend $62.
The Gallup analysis is based on daily tracking interviews conducted from January through September.
