Do you and your husband each own a car?

It seems like it really depends on where you live.  A lot of areas it is very normal to not have any car at all, some areas it is normal to have one car per family and others yet; a car per family member that drives.

My husband and I both have a car, and we also have a truck that we only drive occasionally for larger things.  If we lived in a city, or somewhere with public transportation,  I would be perfectly fine wtih having one vehicle and riding bikes or scooters.

yes we both have a car. My husband travels for work, no way we could only have 1 car.

 We have 2, but from 1995 (when we married) until 1999 we only had 1, and I didn't drive until 97. THen we had my 2nd POS until 2001, and had only 1 car until 2007.
The only reason we could get away with just 1 car, was that both of our Mothers are in the area for "emergencies" and his schedule rotates so that he has weekdays off. It just took planning on my part to make sure appointments lined up with his days off.

There is no way we could only have one car. DH is a truck driver(not OTR) I am a SAHM so I need my own car for dr appts, grocery shopping, school events.

 I would love to have one of those scooters to drive around the neighborhood.  I love them.

 We technically have three cars because my Mom moved in with us.  We each have our own car.  It's nice if one happens to break down or something because someone can always pair up and ride together or take each other to work.

Yes, we both have our own vehicles! Although, lately I have been contemplating on going to one.

 I just saw an article on this in The Stir.  They don't let you take strollers on the bus?  That seems like it would be tough when you have little ones.
