Given the typical scenerio of 2.1 kids, reasonable spending habits, no or little debt and an average house payment (I don't know, $2000 sounds average to me). How much income do you think is required for a family to live comfortably though not lavishly, and for one spouse to quit if they desired? Bear in mind that with only one spouse working childcare costs are nil, and other expenses like clothes, dinners out, etc go way down.
I think an average family could do just fine on about $125K. How about you?
