Love: How Much Would You Pay to Find Love?

Posted:

Decatur - Valentine's Day is a day when we show how much we love someone, and that usually comes at a cost.

According to the Canadian web site "ratesupermarket.ca" couples will spend about $44,000 before tying the knot.

So on a day where love means more than money, how much money did people spend this year?

"Probably about $140 between dinner and stuff, some gifts I got her, and flowers that I sent to work," said Alex Young of Lovington.
 
Another man told WAND News,"I think we're keeping it at a minimum of 20 or 30 bucks."

At the end of the day there is only ultimate question though.

Can money buy you love?

One man in Decatur said,"not real love, there's people that are going to get married for money, but that's not love."

For some,a simple smile is worth more than any present.

"Honestly, just waking up and seeing him smile at me and like cooking him breakfast this morning, it was just so rewarding.  That's the real gift.  The flowers were awesome, don't get me wrong, and I love outfit that he got me, but just waking up and seeing him is more than enough," one woman told WAND News.

That's why they call it love.
