Let’s travel together.

Many young couples do not share the costs equally. Is that “fair”?


Many Gen Z and Millennial couples are choosing to move in together before getting married to save money, but that doesn’t mean they’re splitting expenses.

​About three in five unmarried Millennial and Gen Z couples live together, according to a report by the Thriving Center of Psychology. Half of these couples don’t split the cost of mortgage or rent equally.

“You’re not going to get the same answer for every couple about what’s fair,” says a psychologist quoted by CNBC.

More than half of couples, 54%, said finances were part of their decision to move in together. But that doesn’t mean they split the expenses in half. The study found that half of couples do not split the mortgage or rent equally, and 39 percent does not share the costs of maintaining the animal equally. In turn, 37 percent he feels that their relationship is “financially unequal.”
