    To be honest, I'm not sure what our mortage is atm. DP deals with it, and I haven't paid attention in a while.

    Approx 50% of our income.

    Our minimum mortgage repayments are aprox 18% of our net weekly income, but we pay extra, which takes it up to about 30%.

    Our minimum is approx 22% gross, but will look a lot scarier soon when I'm not working!

    I didn't even consider my gross income, I only ever think about money in terms of net income....

    Yeah, I'm not sure what the point is of looking at gross income. I think that may have something to do with why people feel so ripped off by taxes. I only ever think of net income, so it wouldn't cross my mind.
