Why not keep it simple?

Dinner and a movie?

Bowling and pizza?

Dinner in Philly?

Aquarium in Camden?

A hike?

Happy Birthday!

These are just guesses, so feel free to correct me if I’m wrong:

  1. New Jersey has the highest number of engineers and scientists per square mile in the US.

  2. Central NJ is … well … pretty central. It’s relatively close to Boston, NYC, Philly, Baltimore, and DC.

  3. Pharma is huge in our state, and there are many suppliers of raw materials close by.

  4. I’m not sure on this one, but I vaguely recall reading somewhere that the State gives Pharma a lot of incentives to stay.

I’m no fan of landlords (I’m a renter myself), but costs have gone up for them as well. In my opinion, 5% is not too bad, considering the rate of inflation in the last 12 months.

$65.000 combined?

Maybe, but only if you have no debt whatsoever. You won’t be able to put any money away for savings / retirement. And you will also have to rely on public transportation, and live in a very modest apartment.

A) They probably have families to feed. B) They probably have debt (mortgage, car payments, school loans, credit card debt). C) They’re probably trying to keep up with the Joneses and spending money on things they don’t need. D) They just like to complain. E) A combination of one or more of the above.
