This week, the LG Economic Research Institute released the results of their statistical survey comparing dual and single income households.
The study found that even though the average gross income of homes with working couples was 34 percent higher than single households, further research showed the difference between the net earnings of the two demographics at just 15 percent.
The private think-tank concluded that the small difference in earnings was partly due to higher expenses related to higher education, house cleaning services, and eating out more. The other significant factor was attributed to lower wages of women compared to their male counterparts.

The study concluded that there is now a biological basis to antecdotal evidence of elderly couples dying one after the other with just a few days in between.
But rather a broken heart, it's more likely that a compromised immune system is the cause of death.
