Out of all my friends I am the only married one. They either have a bf or fiancee living with them. They all get help with childcare through the state and pay around $26-40 a week for fulltime childcare as to where since I am.married we don't qualify for that cheap amount. They get energy assistance and pay $26 a MONTH to run their ac 24/7.. I run ours and the Damn bill is $300!! Dh and I have seriously thought about getting a divorce just so we could live cheap.
