A professional couple with good salaries, only 1-2 kids, and no divorce or significant illnesses or layoffs could theoretically do pretty well. But for perspective, the absolute top salary paid in our school district (PhD or Master's+36 and 14 years of experience) is just shy of $58K/year (effectively 10 months). Starting salary is $30K. You can't max out your contributions on that kind of income.
But by comparison, you likely still get a substatial pension.
