It depends largely on where they live. Oklahoma you could live on that... in california not so much

I can't answer that question without knowing where you live. In some areas of the country, raising a family of 4 on $26,000 a year would be very tight, but do-able. Where I live now, it would be pretty much impossible. Cost of living varies dramatically from region to region.

I can't imagine living on that with only 3, but I guess I'm a little spoiled.
