Just because one tire wears out, doesn't mean that you have to replace both tires. The rear tire wears faster than the front.

I replace the tire that wears out when I notice that it is starting to wear out, and I don't rotate my tires ... I've never seen the point.

However, I do always have extra tires on hand at home. So in your case, I might put a new tire on the rear, and then buy a couple new tires knowing that I'm going to have to replace the front one in 1-2000 km.
