Whether you’ve been married for decades, been dating for just a few months or have a Tinder date planned for Feb. 14, you simply can’t show up empty-handed.
The folks at WalletHub wanted to learn exactly how people plan to spend their money this Valentine’s Day, so they conducted an online survey from Jan. 15-18, asking respondents what they plan to buy and how much they plan to spend, as well as financial turnoffs and how money problems affect relationships. When it comes to money and Valentine’s Day, this survey covers it all—and the findings are quite interesting.
For starters, not everyone is celebrating Valentine’s Day. In fact, only 45 percent of people will, and this is up 6 percent from 2008.
Valentine’s Day is Wednesday, and as much as people like to knock it as a Hallmark holiday, it’s a pretty big deal for the lovebirds of the world.
