The Life of Julianne "Full of Win"

31 Years Old
Juilianne meets a nice young man at work. They fall in love and he proposes to her. After they are married, they decide together to have a child. Their combined salaries and health plans easily cover her care throughout her pregnancy. They also begin saving for the expenses to come. -- Cranky T-Rex's Blog: [HT: Morgan's House]

Your Say

What about forty where she divorces him, fucks all his friends, and takes his home, savings, and children?

In this scenario Julianne and hub only have one kid - that's not replacement level is it? And, unlike her mom, Julianne works while kid is in school, therefore not spending the time to transmit the kind of values that made things go well for her. Not a scenario we should optimize for. We need to do better. And we have options, but they are not going to make the dependent classes happy. We ought to go there anyway.
