Between my husband's very good job and the various investment income stuff we have we make ~ $150,000 every year with me not working. The really sad thing is that for where we live we are still not particularly rich. We just refinanced our house to a 15 year loan and we have no debt other than our house. We live in a somewhat smallish house (less than 1,000 sq ft) in a lower middle class neighborhood but we travel a lot. We eat exceptionally well. Compared to our friends we 'sacrifice' to have me stay home but I don't exactly feel like we are suffering. We did have to do work up front to pay off my school loans and his previously incurred debt before we had kids because we wouldn't have been able to manage well given the amount of debt we had. But! We did it and now we have fairly cushy lives.
