  • We do all those things, but we make a lot more than $100,000. I'm middle class. They have to take into consideration where you live. We live in NY. It's quite expensive to live here.

  • I still don't know...lol. Some of that applies, some doesn't, and we make less than $55,000. If we are middle class, we are at the lower end.

  • we're not middle class, but never have been...yet. we own a home but thats it. those income levels sound very low for some areas of America. its about right for Oklahoma, but i bet its not middle class in Cali or NYC.
