Parents: your son will cost you more money than your daughter will

Are you the proud parent of a young boy and a young girl?

Do you lie awake at night wondering how you’re going to pay for that expensive wedding for your daughter?  You’re not thinking about your son growing up and what that will do to your wallet – you have your mind trying to figure out how you’re going to foot the bill for that $100,000 wedding that your daughter has been planning all her life.

How would you feel if Web Watch told you that you have nothing to worry about?

Because no matter how expensive a shindig your daughter decides to throw for her wedding, YOUR DAUGHTER WILL COST YOU LESS THAN YOUR SON WILL, over time.

And it’s because you’ve done a good job raising your children, so your daughter is more likely to be independently financially, and not likely to come back and ask you for support.

Your son, on the other hand, IS more likely to move back in to your basement and subsequently eat you out of house and home.  It’s that “moving back in” thing that causes the cost of raising a son to dramatically skyrocket compared to your more money-savvy daughter.

But that’s okay – just wait until your children are 45-years-old or older.  Once that magical age hits, they’re both even less likely to ask you for money.

Something to look forward to in your retirement, isn’t it?
