I do indeed disagree with egd's point, because there comes a point at which further downgrading isn't possible if you are to feed, house and clothe your family. Even in the nasty hovel with secondhand clothes etc.
But I do also agree that it's important to have a lifestyle that the couple finds acceptable, and that most people would dual-WOH loooong before they got to the nasty hovel stage ;o)
