I have a ex husband making a bit under 60K there. I haven’t pressed him for the alimony I am supposed to be getting or paying my dr bills and co-pays. I felt bad that he would be stuggeling. But I have been to. I live in Memphis and became disabled in 2009. He really wanted out of our marriage in 2006 when he found out I wasn’t going to be able to have children. I was a college professor and put him through his associate degree and would have done for the remainder of two years for 4 yr degree. We got tuition 1/2 price since I worked for state. He has not told his employer that we are even divorced because he says he can’t afford to pay copra for me. I know he’s being garnished for going to a online university instead of online at well respected UofM. Stupid.

Average salary after tax of $3,380, is not right. 90% of the population in Miami is well below that for one person. Whoever provide this information must get real.

I think Miami cost of living is way to high - and that's on an unhealthy budget; seeing as a lot of the foods listed are not so great for you. So if you changed your diet to a more plant based, whole foods diet - WOOO watch out!

Anyways, you can always save on airport parking reservations at Miami International airport by checking out parkon.com/mia
