I made a math error, or explanation error.

It's $37,800 in bills per year. So you actually have 22k left over. or 2 grand a month to spend on whatever.

But who pays $1,000 towards their loans each month anyway?

So, lets say uncle same takes 25%, it gets a bit tighter, but you don't need the $450 car payment each month, you also probably aren't spending $1000 a month on the loans.

Now get married and cut most of those bills in half, or at least down by a small amount and life isn't so bad
