More than half of all brides- and grooms-to-be expect to be financially better off in a year’s time, according to analysis from Roy Morgan Research.
It analysed Consumer Confidence data late last year to find a budding romance swells expectations of the heart and the hip pocket.
Of an estimated 460,000 engaged Australians, 56% expect stronger finances in a year, compared to the national average of 39%.
However this optimism will be short-lived for some newlyweds as financial confidence plummets amongst those expecting a baby, according to the research.
One in five people expecting a bundle of joy also expect to be financially worse off a year from now.
The life lesson here is clear: enjoy the honeymoon before it’s over!
