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.
