If I got my Profit Sharing and DH got his, we could last about a year between the profit sharing, savings and whatever.
I think we'd be okay for a while (couple months maybe) since dh now makes what we both used to make when he worked at his previous job
Honestly we would be fine if I lost my job, my husband makes the money. If my husband lost his job we'd be okay for a little while but wouldn't be able to make it for long on my salary alone.
Maybe 20 mins? Lol jk...Seriously, about two weeks right now. When bf is out of school, and starts working then we should actually be okay for me to stay at home with the kids...once we're married.
If you asked me last year at this time, a really long time. I could probably go to a very part time, poorly paid job and be fine.
Since then, we've had many emergencies come up that exhausted a lot of our savings, so I would immediately be uncomfortable if I lost my job right now. I won't be happy until our savings account gets above a certain threshold again.
If necessary, we could pretty easily last until the end of the year. My husband can pick up overtime to fill in the gap. It would suck, though.
Depends on what you mean. Savings wise we don't have anything because everything we have in invested in DH's business. However, we have enough credit available to last for probably a year. Not my ideal way to live, but thats the risk you take starting a business. If I lost my job today, I can also pretty much guarantee I would have another job within 2 months...at least that's whats happened the last 3 times the company doors have closed on me.
If I lost my job, that would mean our family business went under... we'd be okay for up to 6 months, but following that, we'd start to really start hurting if we couldn't either start another business in that time, or find jobs by then.
