It is really going to depend on a number of factors such as where his job would be at, what he gets paid now, if you work outside the home, and what fixed bills you have now (such as car payments, credit cards, etc). Overall though, according to this website http://www.payscale.com/cost-of-living-calculator/Georgia-Atlanta/Ohio-Akron, Atlanta and Akron are about the same as far as cost of living goes. If he doesn't mind the drive, y'all could live right outside of Atlanta where it would be cheaper. I would suggest Acworth, GA but again it is going to depend on what area in Atlanta he works in. I think that $48,000 a year is very doable in Atlanta, especially if you live on the outskirts where it is cheaper.
