    HA! This is amazing. Single mom, 2 kids, 260k? The richest person I know makes less than that, with husband, sans kids. I’m going into a moderately well payed field and I’ve never even imagined a future where I could make 180k even with my partner, much less raking that in while I’m retired. We’re making 60k before taxes and living very comfortably in Boston, so anyone complaining about “high” taxes on a 230k income can suck it up.
