I know single women paying mortgages and raising children on less than $40K - gross. I think maybe your idea of a "good life" needs adjusting. You don't have to be rich to have a good life.

It may have something to do with cost-of-living. Trying to get by in San Jose, CA or Fairfield County, CT is hard to do with $40k, but in many areas of the US that money would go pretty far.
