On your income...

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
On your income, if your SO ever left, could you make it where you are living? Let's say you are awarded 75 dollars a month per kid for child support and there is never a guarantee that he will pay.

It would be tight. I would have to cut back on things like cable & other extras to help.

Nope. I'm a SAHM and have no income. I could find a job and a cheaper place to live and I'd be fine

Yep because the house is mine (I owned it free and clear before we married (granted to me in my first divorce) and the car is mine free and clear) All I would have are basic utilities to pay. The maximum of the bills in any given month is about 300-350 in utilities and then every six months I pay 1/2 of the property taxes which is 400 (800 a year).
