IT'LL COST YA Gay Wedding While there may be a huge influx of income to California for gay marriages—mostly because the gays tip well—the gays are still remarkably miserly about their weddings. Gays on average, according to this study by the Williams Institute at UCLA's Law School, spend just $7,645 on their nuptials. Those from out of state spend just a little over 4 grand. The average straight couple spends. $30,580. Which is insane! You people spend THIRTY GRAND ON YOUR WEDDINGS, which only last a few years and then cost you almost as much in lawyer's fees when you break up? I take back everything bad I ever said about gay marriage. Straight people are retarded. Still, there are some big-spending, celebrity gays, say retailers!
