with out PA?


I do and we are going to for the next four years while we are both in school.


ETA I had my old before school because the choice of getting pregnant was taken from me and I choose to give him life. we had more children because we could afford them.

We would have no desire to. That is beyond poverty in our eyes. You'd never make it in Chicago in a decent area.

I guess it depends on where you like. Here that's not uncommon.

Nope. Would never be able to make that work in NYC.

We support 5, soon to be six, kids on less than 40,000 without PA and are doing just fine. Our kids all have their needs and many of their wants covered and have college savings accounts and we own a house and car.
