    Well, DS might have to share a room with me... He already sleeps with me most nights anyway, and it would only be for a year or two while I work and finish my masters.

    I'm not sure exactly what dh is paid but I would think its about 35-40%? Single income household and we do pay quite a substantial amount more than the minimum required. We get by so don't see the need to drop what we pay

    50%. Just an average house in WA, not a fancy suburb. One income family

    Our rent is 40% of our income
    But for what we are renting we are getting a very good deal we are being under charged by at least $100 a week

    Edit : we live in WA in an ok suburb & on a very low wage
