It's Valentine's Eve, Money readers. And, yes, that's a thing (at least to me, David). If you're scrambling to find flowers, meals and deals for your loved one, your Cupid wings have carried you to the right place. 

Sweetheart deals: If you're looking to treat your honey but save money. Or you just want to relax with friends, then here's a list of restaurants and stores that are offering deals on coffee, flowers and other treats for Valentine's Day.

Paid enough, or too much? President Trump has proposed a modest 1% pay increase and less generous retirement benefits for federal workers. The proposal, included in his 2021 budget, is reigniting a debate over whether federal employees earn too much, or too little, compared to private-sector workers. Trump's budget also takes aim at parts of Social Security and student loans

Safety first: If you're looking for a new car or SUV with high safety ratings, a new list can help you choose.

Fewer people are getting married, but even fewer are getting divorced, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. In 2008, the marriage rate was 17.9 per 1,000 women; a decade later the figure was 16.6 per 1,000 women. The decrease in divorce rates was even more marked. It went from 10.5 per 1,000 women in 2008 to 7.7 per 1,000 women in 2018. 24/7 Tempo reviewed the percentage of residents who are divorced in U.S. cities with a population of at
 least 5,000 people using the  U.S. Census Bureau’s 2018 American Community Survey  to determine the divorce capital of each state.  Among all Americans age 15 and older -- some states allow people to get married under 18 with parental consent -- 10.8% are divorced and have not remarried. An additional 2% of people in that age group are separated but not divorced from their spouses. The percentage of the population that is divorced varies from state to state and from city to city. In some places, almost a quarter of residents are divorced; in others -- just over a tenth are.  Couples decide to call it quits for different reasons, but there are a few common causes. Many studies over the
 years have tried to find an answer to why a marriage ends in divorce. Several of the reasons that are highlighted in almost every study include lack of commitment, infidelity, arguing too much, and growing apart, according to the Institute of Family Studies.  Money is also a fairly common reason for spouses to go their separate ways. Couples who are struggling with money appear to be more likely to split up. In all but six states, the divorce capital’s median household income is lower than the corresponding state median.  Working through a separation is a very stressful experience. While much of the stress is emotional, there is often a financial element as well. And lawyers don’t come
