Thats why I'm not getting kids, and never having a wife.
The benifits DO NOT outweight the expense! Come on..
Half of your income: goes to your wife for her jewelery and car and shit they always want.
The half that you get, will be split relitively eavenly to each kid, eating up more and more of a percentage of your fun fund. I dunno, roughly 75% of that goes to the kids, so you really only get 25% of HALF of your income, of which, half of which the government took from you in the first place. You can't forget to factor in some broken stuff... kids tend to break things, like palsma TV's, and fishtailing your jaguar sports car into an oncoming truck
. (scroll down)
So that's another 30% of your income that you'd have left. You can't forget college, That's a nice average of 15,000 a year for 4 years
Married w/ kids = 3.625% of the gross money you'd make.
Unmarried = 50% of the gross money you'd make.
BTW: this was the most terrible breakdown of funds I've ever seen...
