to wonder how private renters in London can afford their rent if they have children?

Rents are so out of kilter. In my area a 2 bed is now £325 per week on average. We just cannot afford this and even though my dh has a better than average paying job, this is insanity and we are thinking about upping sticks, even though I have lived here all my life. How do people, especially those with young children afford to pay private rents in London? It's just crazy and in my opinion so destructive for communities, individuals and the economy. Only the rich getting richer at the expense of everyone else.

Its tough, something I know I cant manage and thats why I am moving an hour away from London and commuting in when the baby is here.
