I cannot figure out why people say 50k isnt enough to live on. Maybe its life experiance. We lived on 10k a year for a couple years. Then DH got a better job, and we bring home 34k a year. Thats almost 3000 a month. 

Maybe its just because of what I was used to. But 50k sounds pretty dang good to me...

It is when you don't have it. Once you get more and more and more, you can't imagine living with less. We are guilty of that.

Depends on the cost of living in your area. In some places 50k is more than enough to live on comfortably, in other places like in NYC (where I live) you would barely be scraping by.

Here in Colorado with 4 kids we wouldn't survive. It depends on where you live and how big your family is.

but her response to that was to move, to an area where cost of living wasnt so much.

because, she lives inside a box

Maybe it's where you live, where I live now it would be plenty, where I grew up, you would have a hard time surviving.
