Mortgage: $765, which is my half of the mortgage payment of $1,530. (I share the house with my sister, B., and our six cats. B. and I both knew in early adulthood that we didn’t want spouses or kids, so it made sense for us to have two incomes together. It’s unconventional, but it works for us. B. earns about $65,000.)
