We made the move to one income 14 years ago, after my wife gave birth to our first child.

We regret that we didn't live on just one income for the 4 years we were married before our son was born, because it would have been awesome to have built up our savings account during those years.

Or, you could get divorced.

Rich, why would living on one income for 4 years prior to having children have helped you save? That makes zero sense. Wouldn't you save more with an extra income?

Emily --

I think he means that they both worked for four years and they lived on both incomes. Instead, he wishes they had both worked, but lived on only one income -- and saved all of the other income.

Or one of you could get laid off. All to common these days. Talk about forced reevaluation.
