being single with no dependants sucks. Last pay check was $2400 (bi-weekly) before taxes and I ended up with $1600.


Believe me, dependents cost a whole lot more than the taxes you pay without them.

re: What is the breakdown of YOUR paycheck?
take home 4k every two weeks, to joint bank account. I hide about 800 a month into a seperate account the wife is unaware of :)
10% 401k (before taxes tho)

10% Stock option
20% mortgage
25% to vehicles
20% bills

leaves me 25% or so to eat and spend freely, not to mention the secret account for Vegas/gambling/etc

you're a dead man if she ever finds out.

That's a definite dealbreaker for me tbh. If you're lying about how much you bring in and we have joint accounts, I can't trust you're not lying about any debts/financial worrie sthat can affect me as well.

re: What is the breakdown of YOUR paycheck?
This one is easy for me, I just copy and paste my monthly budget. The revenue part is what we net. I contribute to my 40lk and my wife contributes to her pension, she works for the state. Every year we usually get about $5,000 when file our taxes and we use that for a vacation, so it is a way that I save for our annual vacation.
