A mother's marital advice to a daughter often goes something like this - Remember dear it's just as easy to fall in love with a rich man as it is a poor one.   Thanks mom.

How about this.  It's better to fall in love with someone from New Mexico as it is someone from Manhattan!

The Knot surveyed nearly 13,000 couples married in 2017 and found the state you choose to get married in can have a big impact on how much it'll cost you. The least-expensive state to tie the knot in would be New Mexico, where it costs an average of $17,584.   If you have an unlimited budget you'll have no issue getting married in Manhattan where the average wedding costs $76,944, 4 times more than in the desert Southwest.

Ah, the cost of love--geographically speaking!
