I think we are middle class right now. I think that would be right. DH makes 50k a year, i dont make much. DH has been at the same job for 7.5 years, worked hard, got lots of raises and works long hours. Once i graduate college in a couple years ill be making as much as him so that will be wonderful!
I think (after googling American class systems) we would be classed as lower middle class - middle class.
SO has an associates and a trade though he's just started a new career in a different industry. I'm at school getting my bachelors though I have several diplomas in assistant nursing. Between us we earn about $65,000 - $70,000 a year.
We're pretty middle class. Personally I got here at 18 by marrying someone who was already well established. He got there because he went to college, got a Master's degree and made good financial choices such and delaying having children. I would NOW be able to maintain a middle class standing because I have a degree and a job and work my ass off.
