59. I was generalizing household income for 2 or more people.
Edited on Mon Oct-26-09 02:18 PM by OneTenthofOnePercent
Meaning both partners are combined $80k-$120k (or $40k-$60k individually). Sorry for not being more clear.
WOW... I'd smack someone who thought 120k was a middle-class individual income as well. lol.

Class is a pretty subjective term. Costs vary by region and having kids in your household can be a large financial responsibility.
