Look what the war on marriage has done so far.

We cannot possibly survive on the income listed to qualify for a subsidy,

Somehow we (4) manage to survive on less than the lowest income listed for the biggest subsidy. Been surviving that way for a decade.

Exactly! My south of the border neighbors (not my real neighbors, I’m speaking metaphorically) in my town were married in Mexico. They are not recognized as married here in the US. Thus they get SNAP as they both file as no income (most get paid in cash), and they both file as having custody of the kids (no SS card, so... no way to cross reference). They get WIC cards, no taxes (except sales taxes), food for the kids in school, free schooling (our public schools are NOT free here to the average working family). The list of bennies goes on and on.

They have no desire to get married legally, and are trained not to do so.

Similar but not the same with Baby Mommas and their Baby Daddies. You make more money being single and claiming your kids as dependents.

This is why folks who have way less than me can afford to drive Escalades, and I drive a VW TDI.

Though they will deny it,
this is intentional on the part of the left.

Just as in 1984 - relationships, marriage, and family are discouraged and all loyalty is to be to the government.

There’s an old saying in the computer field: “That’s not a bug. It’s a feature.”

Well, I hope so. We just got it a few months ago. Actually based on discussions here on FR.

We bought a 2012 TDI wagon. Winter is coming, so we’ll see how it goes.

The point was cost. I’ve worked my whole life, owned a successful business, and I wouldn’t dare drop down 50k on a car, then toss another 5k into it with rims and sound system.

I would be a fool to do so. But then again, you know what they say about money easily earned... it’s easily spent. My kids say I’m a miser, and I have moth-balls in my wallet. Lessons taught to me by my parents who grew up in the depression I guess.
