    I was in Brooklyn for a few years and at the time, we paid about $660 for a crappy studio and then around $1250 for a 1bd/1ba. The 2bd/2ba I was referencing to was right outside Philadelphia. The northeast in general is crazy expensive.
    Yeah, it's even worse now, actually. That's why I wanna move out of the city, but still be close enough to get here by train.

    Though, as I said previously, you're not even in college yet and you are worrying about things that are not coming for several years. You seriously need to focus on the present and stop worrying about this girl or that girl and marriage right now. You're not ready.





    Where do you guys live? Those numbers are unreal.

    I'd be blessed to find a 1bd/1ba for $1500/month. Insanely expensive here. You'll get a normal studio here for $1300...

    housing in the suburbs are $50,000 buy and if you want to rent it would cost $1,200 a month. so you would want minimum $40,000 salary to have a basic life with maybe some left over for vacations.

    i don't think people would move just because you make money, hell you wouldn't want to marry such people.

    I'd say at least 45,000 a year if you want an acceptable standard of living...

    It's better to have patience and taqwa then to force yourself doing all these things just to make ends meet. If you can't provide, taqwa is better for you.

    You should look into the average cost of living in your area. You would need $1,000 to 1,500 just on rent. Then there is buying and marinating a car along with insurance, utility costs, etc. Not to mention that women are needy. It will take a very pious woman who wants to marry a man your age who is struggling to make ends meet. That's love right there.

    May Allah bestow on you whatever good you need, ameen

    but in reality, you can find really cheap apartments just outside the ghettos and other sketchy area. if you want a cheap apartment find the crap school districts. if you don't have kids, its all good and you save alot. and if you don't miss with people they usually won't bother you.
