    Most working families need the two incomes just survive.

    That's mostly because they went to far with toys and debt.

    Yes, they have, Johnny. But until our most recent past, men have "done it" with the help of stay-at-home wives. A man's lot in life right now is a hard row to hoe.

    I think it kind of depends what one calls survival.

    This is completely and utterly false. My wife and two daughters lived in one of the most affluent areas on earth, Newport Beach, Ca on one teachers salary. That's it. Beginning teachers salary, as a matter of fact.

    We then moved to Napa Valley and again lived on one teachers salary... what people need and what people want are two distinct differences. People generally confuse the two since they don't understand the difference and generally are unable to impose self control.

    Or because they don't make enough money. It's hard. Especially in today's economy. Not to mention those who are Not on the dole. I know at this point in time my family needs th two incomes. Actually more. Not many toys and one car.

    Teachers make good money.

    All I know is that I earn $25k a year with a family of 4 and can afford it in my locality.
    Even then I'm sure there are people with special circumstances that couldn't make it but if I can do it, most others can too.

    Even if that is the case how do you expect people to rise up without more income?

    It's been a looong time since I've had to "watch pennies," but I'm sure I could do it again. When two people get married, they pool their incomes and live to that standard. It didn't used to be that way. Couples lived on one income and banked the other one 'til they started a family. That gave them a downpayment on a little starter home someplace and they were off to a pretty darned good start. Not today. Today, at least in the Chicago area, it's a McMansion first home 1-1/2 hours from their jobs (so they can afford 'em), two newer cars, and toys-toys-toys. Oh, and that doesn't even COUNT the $20,000 wedding...
