Do windshield wipers come in pairs?

I ordered new windshield wipers for my Honda Civic online, and was shocked when I was sent only one wiper! I took it to the physical store for an exchange, but all they had were single wipers. Am I shopping in a weird place, or do windshield wipers not come in pairs?

Buying individual blades for your Honda Civic may not make sense on the surface but, while windshield wipers come in pairs, they are sold separately.
This is because wiper blades can wear out at different speeds, one could get damaged and need replacing before the other, or your vehicle could use a mixture of different wipers.
New and old wipers work together just fine regardless of the difference in wear. Unlike tires, where you want an even tread across your vehicle, wipers operate independently of each other and can be replaced as needed.
If you prefer to replace both wipers at the same time you can sometimes source wipers in pairs. Two-packs are often sold as combo packs and include two different wiper sizes, so ensure you read the size details carefully.
Having to read a ton of details is often what deters people from shopping around for car insurance, as comparing policies can be overwhelming.
