15. Well
800,000 of those Americans have the same kinds of obligations...she's not the only one.

My wife and I together still don't make what she's getting...and we have a mortgage, a car payment, granted we don't have a 2-year-old son but we do have 3 adult children who often ask for help, and a 13 year-old dog, who was just recently described as being pampered. :)

We don't have a house in another state, and my wife paid off her student loans while she was in the USAF.

And we live in Virginia right outside D.C., so the cost of living isn't inexpensive for us either.

It's a little difficult for me to feel much sympathy for her.
