    We don't starve but I have no idea how it is to live in the comfort of a $125k per year lifestyle. I wish I knew so I could say if I was truly missing out on something.

    I'd be damn happy to be even near that.. even during our best year we never reached 80K in the last 10years wife and I have been together.

    I would have judged things this way:

    Destitute - Less than $6,000 per year
    Poor - Between $6,000 and $18,000 per year
    Lower Middle - Between $18,000 and $36,000 per year
    Middle - Between $36,000 and $72,000 per year
    Upper Middle - Between $72,000 and $108,000 per year
    Rich - Greater than $108,000 per year

    For an individual...lower middle class I'd figure between 40-65K maybe? 125K lower middle class is ridiculous. I'd put that in the top range of middle class.
    Have your feelings been hurt by a random act of E-Thuggery? If so, call 1-800-Waaaaahmbulance, we're here 24 hrs a day, 7 days a week, to take your call, you could be due a large monetary settlement, don't delay, call now.

    You don't need to leve elsewhere to figure cost of living.


    For the more boonies areas of VA it looks like 22-25k a year to get by. I would have thought it'd be a bit lower.

    thats about right... but when fuel prices start rising over 2$/gallon people start to hurt fast since you have to drive many miles to get to a decent paying job unless your lucky. I only have to go 16miles round trip a day...I used to do only 3miles on my old job.
