You may not know this, but you:
Pay more for health insurance premiums and deductibles than the per-person cost for married couples
Can be discriminated against if you try to rent or buy property with a partner
Probably receive fewer employee benefits at work
Pay more for car insurance that the per-person cost for married couple
May be charged a “single supplement” when you travel, or be asked to share lodging with a stranger
Are assumed to have a less responsible life filled with lots of disposable income and free time.
May be given less attractive travel assignments or asked to work more than your married colleagues.
Your higher costs subsidize “family discounts” that are offered everywhere. Does any of this strike you as unfair? Discriminatory? Maybe illegal? It should.
