115. I've known at least 2 welfare families just like that
Zinnisking, I've known people who raised families on welfare benefits. They weren't rolling in the dough but they weren't uncomfortable either. They get food, subsidised housing, and free medical care and prescriptions.

When i was about 16 I became deeply concerned about the effects of overpopulation on the planet. I had a malthusian view, just on my own. Early on DH and i decided not to have children. Many couples we know did not contribute more human beings to the planet. Yet there are no 'rewards' for our conscious sacrifices.
