Household income of 85K for a family of 4.

I tried writing about my details, but it was too embarassing so I deleted it.

EDIT: Money is the big problem in less than 10% of your marriages! I suppose I should feel lucky that we don't have a bigger issue. Mostly I feel like an idiot because DH & I are so awful at managing our finances.

Any income I make we put in savings and we put some of his in savings as well. Then we have our bills paid and spending money. We live comfortably but we don't have a ton of excess.

When we didn't have any it was a huge issue lol it was rough. Now we are doing fine, got most of our debt paid off so while we make about 50k we are pretty comfortable.

Around 90K, family of 3. And we are completely separate financially, so there aren't any financial matters to agree on, so I chose "other".
