    @krex:  Lol, I just try to remember these sorts of threads when confronted with the threads about how much money people give as wedding guests (because I feel soooo guilty about the fact that we usually can only give around $50).

    We make about $4000 a month after taxes. Most of that goes to rent–we live in NYC. Money’s tight for two soon-to-be-hitched grad students!

    @classical_wolf:  Er… Are you sure you added that up right? 1600 a year is less than 20k..

    We can make up to 3000 a month combined, but it depends on how many hours we have that week.

    I’m hoping after the wedding I’ll be able to go to vet school and become a vet tech, so that’ll get us more money. But still not near as much as tons of Bees do.

    we live south east of Baltimore and I am not working. Fiance makes about $3000 a month, depends on how many bonuses he gets. He is a plumber and if he sells a big job he gets $200 bonus (yay). I do get $300 child support a month though so I guess our combined income is around $3300+ We pay mortage and car payment though so after all is done we are able to put away only around $100 towards savings. We are a family of 5 🙂

    Fiance works full time and pulls in about $4,100 after taxes, health insurance, 401k etc.

    I’m a student/job seeker, but even if I worked full time, there’s no way that monthly number would double.

    We bring in about $6k/mo after taxes. This is also in a low cost-of-living area (a nice 3 bedroom house in a subdevision would cost about 200k) and both of us have been out of school about a year.

    @soontobemrsm11:  I’d say $100K is pretty average, especially if it’s from 2 people. I couldn’t imagine making less than $50K a year once I get my degree…

    I’m one year out of college and Fiance has one more class to go before he gets his degree. I net around $1,800 a month while FI’s pay fluctuates week to week and season to season. He can make more than me in a month during the busy season, and quite a bit less in the off season. We make about the same when he works ~65 hours a week, which happens far more often than I really like. On average though I’d say we net somewhere around $3,000 a month Which I think is pretty decent for our age.

    No. WAYYY not “average” in the United States. 100k is almost DOUBLE the average household income of $52,000. Not everyone gets a degree, not everyone who does get a degree actually gets a good job. I have a best friend who has a CJ degree and is making just above 20k a year. Her SO is a manager somewhere and is making about the same. If you have the right career field then 50k might be average but in my field, I’m hoping and praying to cross the 40K line when I graduate and more than likely gonna be just above 30k

    @soontobemrsm11:  oiy, I guess my degree has a higher median. I just know that I can’t even imagine making less than maybe $40,000. I feel like I’d be struggling if I did that. Maybe not, though. Who knows.

    @mrspinesol:  Yea it depends on your field for sure! What field are you in? My SO is in healthcare and made close to 30k just with one of her first degrees at 18 years old. It makes me super jealous lol As a combined household, we can survive off of 40k but it’s a bit tight (unless we did things like cut cable out)…I’d feel like we were struggling on less than 40k combined. But if we were both making 40k EACH, we’d be rollin in the dough haha Right now we’re at 55k combined and still keep things tight so we can build up our savings.
