My husband makes less then 50,000 dollars a year. We have it tight but are not suffering in any way. If we hadn’t been so foolish as to go into debt, we would actually be doing pretty good.
I have always heard that most families don’t make enough to live off one income. But I am curious, how much is enough income for one person to make to support a family?
This thread, by the way, is not intended to be any kind of bashing vehicle for either SAHMs or those who are employed outside the home!:dts:
I suppose that I should set some parameters for this thread. So, lets say the family has four members, mom, dad, and two kids. They have a house and car payment but aren’t in debt.
How much does one spouse need to make to afford that the other remain home. I have nothing against SAHD(stay at home dads) so if you want to picture the woman going to work and the guy staying home that is fine with me.
