    I have a family of three and make less than that and am doing fine.  We aren't struggling at all.

    As a single mom I was living on a income of lower then 27,000 and we were very happy! I had a house, car, great clothes (I bargained shop at garage sales and clearances for the next season). So that is a great income, people seem to spend out of thier means no matter how much they make, you become acustomed to it.

    Depends on where you live, but that's way above average.

    Im a stay at home mom. My husband makes around 50-60 a year. We have a family of 3 but im pregnant with baby number 2. Soon we will be a family of 4. Sure we struggle but thats because we choose to have a nice place to live and new cars. I think it depends on how you spend your money. How expensive your life is I guess....

    We are a family of 4 soon to be 5. And my hubby pays child support on another daughter. We make about half of that and survive. Not struggling but not great.
