That is probably the reason recent party invitations that I have received only lists the wives’ names as hosts for the party, even though it’s for a couple’s shower. That way everyone shares per person and there is one person in the couple who is billed. Readers, do you have any other ideas on how to do this?
GUEST’S ANSWER: Devonne Carter, licensed clinical social worker and etiquette class teacher at Oklahoma Christian University: You divide the cost by 11. There is no reason to penalize the single person.
