Money matters

This is such a nosy question but if you are a sahp, how much does your partner earn to make it viable?

I fully expect people to change names for this but I have long wondered: if you're a sahm/d, how much does your partner earn? In other words, how high does one salary have to be in order for 2 people and child/ren to survive? And what does your partner do to earn this? I'm not asking out of anything other than total nosiness so do tell me to bog off if you like! Name changers extremely welcome!

oh and your 2nd question - again we still have tax credits, and he earns commission for 'sales' (people he persaudes to get their TV license when he calls at their house). Although we won't see the first commision money until October as they pay the bonus 2 months in arrears.

v. why do so many threads lately end up with people having or trying to have a dig at single mother or working mothers (or both as I am) it really pisses me right off... I don't understand why that had to be dragged into this thread.
