We have three sources of income. DH's job provides roughly 2/3, his military retirement check about 1/6 and my job about 1/6.

I voted "one wage earner" because its the closest. However, with child support and alimony its not an accurate statement.

Choose your friends by their character and your socks by their color.  Choosing your socks by their character makes no sense and choosing your friends by their color is unthinkable.

I guess my answer would be multiple. Dh is the primary breadwinner. I woh pt, own an apartment building which I manage too, and have a small seasonal business with my brothers that generates a nice little chunk of change every year.

Hmmm..I voted "sources other than paid income", but I'm not even sure that is REALLY accurate...sigh.


Our income is the Social Security that DH receives, the SS that the kids receive, and the VA compensation that DH receives.

I voted two incomes-one primary and one secondary. Right now, I am primary which is quite a change for us. I have always been secondary but, with Devin on disability, it has changed. He is getting half pay right now and I am trying to work longer hours to make up the difference. We are also getting help from family and friends so I probably should have put other income sources too. I didn't think about it.

DH trades options with our savings in the stock market and also runs a hedge fund for which he is paid a portion of the earnings of the fund. I also am investing in real estate, flipping properties. I checked the 'other' box as no one here is actually paid 'wages'.

I put one wage earner, since only my dh works, but he earns two wages which each provide about 50% of our income.
