If you're comfortable sharing, where do you live (state) and what is the rent you pay, how many bedrooms, and square feet?

2000 a month is common, even having roommates one person can pay this much. 750 is for "low income housing". ND oilfield

We're in Hawaii. We live on base housing and we get BAH (Basic Allowance for Housing), which covers rent & utilities. The amount depends on rank and where you're stationed. DH gets $2400/month aside from his basic pay. So that's basically how much we pay.

2000 for what size and bedrooms? 2000 here is considered typical for a 2 bedroom condo or apartment.
