Not sure how to answer... Jul 21, 2008

... since there's only me (assuming that "family" means "spouse + children", as opposed to "parents and siblings").

Greetings

Same here, my household is only me and the options seemed to assume there are at least two potential breadwinners in the family. So I answered "Other", lacking the "I'm single" option! =)

I'm not the sole breadwinner, but I am definitely the main one... too bad!

My Own Houseold And With family Jul 21, 2008

Since I own my own household but have family, I just answerd with 'yes'. Thought about hiting 'Other', but then again...'Yes' is fine with me. Though I denied.

[Bearbeitet am 2008-07-21 16:59] No. There are a couple of breadwinners in my family.

Answer: No.

1 family >>> 1 + X housholds

We are a team Jul 21, 2008

My husband and I divide the expenses of the family. He takes care of the morgage, food, the school for my daughters and services and I do the rest (meaning cloth, fun for the weekends, vacations, courses, etc.) ... works for me

living with parents? Jul 22, 2008

What about still living with parents? Of course, that's my family now, but sooner or later I will have MY family, I suppose.
However, no, I'm not the only breadwinner in my family...luckily, because it would be hard to live just with what I earn now
