Ok so this is going to vary beacuse everyone is in a different position. So take away rent, beacuse there's a huge difference where you live, what is an acceptable allowance for your girlfriend to live on if she doesn't have a job. Take away children and family just living expenses for one person to live on the Philippines. My wife if she got a job for example at the national book store would earn 300 pesos a day to live on. Would you say this is an acceptable allowance for one person to live on, or would they be living in poverty?
