‘DINKWAD’ couples are boasting about benefits of their lifestyle choice

‘DINKWAD’ couples are boasting about benefits of their lifestyle choice

'DINKWAD' is causing a huge debate on TikTok

‘DINK’ is the viral relationship acronym that's causing a huge debate online, but now people are going a step further by claiming to be ‘DINKWAD’.

Watch below:

Lilly Anne and her husband Evan are just one couple who have gone viral on TikTok for promoting the benefits of their unconventional relationship.

The couple boast about how much spare cash they have, from lavish meals after work to treating themselves whenever they want.

In their video, the couple say they don't need to skimp on their favourite treats at Costco and list attending football games or playing golf as their top priorities.

Viewers were quick to comment on their TikTok, proving that a DINK relationship isn't for everyone.

"They're in their 20s, time humbles and changes everyone in their hedonism," one user wrote.

"Imagine a 2000 year bloodline ending because someone wanted more snacks from Costco," another added.

Someone else simply called it 'Short-term thinking'.

So what exactly is the ‘DINK’ lifestyle?

Well, DINK is simply an acronym that stands for ‘Dual Income, No Kids’.

If both parties earn an income, and neither choose to have children, they're a DINK.

According to Bustle, the acronym was first popularised in 1987.

At the time, a Los Angeles Times article credited the rise of DINKs as a way for baby boomers to 'beat inflation and income stagnation'.

According to the Office for National Statistics, there was a 3.1 percent decrease in children being born in the UK in 2022, compared to 2021.

However, it seems that the term ‘DINKWAD’ is proving to be a lot less controversial.

Commenting on the clip, one viewer said: "I found my people."

"Omg this is me too!!!!" a second added.

While a third wrote: "I wanted this."

Well, staying on the topic of DINK, one X (Twitter) user complained that the 'trend is really sending me today'.

“There are many very personal reasons couples would choose a DINK ****life other than just being able to eat out every day. Just tread tenderly my friends,” they warned.

Another added: “Unconventional take: if you want to be DINKs for a period of time, that’s fine.

“But don’t use it as an excuse to make stupid money decisions. This is a key time to prepare financially for your future. My husband and I were (have been?) DINKs for over 5 years.”

Would you do DINK?
