We are comfortable. My wife has a master’s degree but stays at home with our four children. I am an attorney and work in politics in Oklahoma City. We have a used Honda Odyssey and a used Honda Accord, a 1,200 sq ft home, some savings and a 401(k). We eat dinner together every evening, go to church on Sunday, dine out on weekends and take a summer vacation. We could do better, but we could do a lot worse. 

There’s a lot happening in the world.  Through it all, Marketplace is here for you. 

You rely on Marketplace to break down the world’s events and tell you how it affects you in a fact-based, approachable way. We rely on your financial support to keep making that possible. 

Your donation today powers the independent journalism that you rely on. For just $5/month, you can help sustain Marketplace so we can keep reporting on the things that matter to you.
