Perhaps the biggest financial advantage of marriage is simply that the couple only has to pay for one place to live instead of two. Some expenses must be fully incurred by two people living apart that can be shared jointly when living together, such as utilities, rent or a mortgage payment. Although these things may be slightly higher for a couple than a single person, they are still usually cheaper than for two single people living separately.
