The Moneyist: I have wedding guest fatigue — can single people give less cash than couples?

Dear Moneyist,

I was recently divorced and am now single. When I go to a wedding where cash is the expected gift, can I give half as much as I would if I was still part of a couple? It only seems fair, but I may be seen as cheap.

You’re not the only one who has wedding guest fatigue.

The pressure is on guests to come up with increasingly lavish gifts.
