Pending medical and exact taxes he's probably bringing home 65% of his pay after (401k, medical, fed taxes, state taxes, etc), so roughly 104k, 36k in rent later your down to 68k of usable income.
So he still has quite a bit left. I live in an expensive market, but I don't pull in anywhere near $160K. I'd love to. Would make my life so much easier.
Thanks for the insight. I have to say $68K of available income is still significant. People's entire salaries are less than $68K. Perhaps this is a simple assessment, but it would seem to me if it's hard to live on $160K they're doing something clumsily. The first rule of any household should be to budget income and know where every dollar goes.
