Is It Best To Replace Axle Shafts In Pairs

I have a 97 subaru impreza and had work recently done. The mech said the cv boot is torn and i need a new front right axle shaft. I elected not to get it done at that visit.

Do i need to replace these in pairs? Why? How much should this run? what are the symptoms and consequences of not repairing it now.

The car has 103,000 on it so i’m trying to reasonable about repairs on it. Last year: new timing belt, this year: new 2nd cat. Now: axles!?

Thanks!
