that makes sense actually. if you are punished for achieving a certain financial status in some scenarios (ie rich = $250,000 if married), then why get married?

Married people have two incomes whereas some of us single folk survive (or try to) on a one person income.  The married folks think we single people have it made when it comes to finances.  Not necessarily.  Married people have to pay rent/mortgage, utilities, gas, and groceries just like we single people do. We have our fair share of expense just like married people do.
