We could not, no way. Not with 2 adults to get to work, 5 kids to get to school, swimming, ballet, dance, horse riding, singing, soccer, gymnastics, youth group etc. There is no public transport here and groceries are an hour away. We just couldn't do it without two cars infact.
What about you?

No way! I have to go to work ten minutes away, ds does ride his bike to school but we go out A LOT.
There is no way we would catch public transport all those times. Just no....

Nope. We have 2 cars, DH drives over 45 minutes each way to work every day, and he starts at 5am so public transport in our area simply isnt appropriate.
I couldnt survive without my car with 3 young kids. School drop off and pick ups, specialist appointments, etc. Wouldnt be doable.

Yeah we are in and out of the house at least four times a day. Not to mention I would go crazy having to stay at home and not being independent, omg.

We have made do with no car with 1 child and another on the way for the last couple of months. It hasn't really been difficult because we have kindy and shops etc all either in walking distance or close to public transport. We will be fine for a few more months until we get another car before bubs is born.
Edit - We sometimes borrow my parents other car for the day/when they go away and it feels like such a luxury Lol.

The six weeks after my surgery where I couldn't drive turned our life upside down. Mum had to move in and i think if it was even a day longer I might not be married anymore
Hubby does away a few days a week in his car and i still need my van to get the kids to school (50 min round trip), food shop etc...

Nope, dp leaves for work before public transport starts running!

No way, we live in perth and public transport is useless!!
Plus I know what you mean about living rurally, we are moving where the corned deli is 15 mins plus away and a supermarket 25 mins. No way we could live without 2 cars there

Nope. Hubby is fine walking to work and the teens are happy walking to school and to their friends etc but school is just a bit too far for the younger ones. I also do nightshift and there is no way I'd walk home at 3am. We have two cars but could easily live with one.
