That's the boat we're in. I'm the only one that works outside the home and it can be tight financially. I think giving what you can is all Our Lord asks.

My husband is the only one bringing home a salary in our household; I'm a housewife. But about 10-11 years ago we made a conscious decision to make tithing a priority. We figured if we could find the money to pay for cable, go out to eat, etc., then we could find the money to support our parish.

At the time we started, we were only giving about 1% of our take-home pay each month. I had figured out a schedule where we could be up to a full 10% within a year, but amazingly we were at that point in less than 6 months.

We live in an area with a lot of protestants, and I like to listen to a local protestant talk radio show daily. I had heard on that program in regards to tithing that "God can't be outdone in giving" and that "God's math will never add up". I can certainly say that that was true of us in regards to tithing. It seems like we never felt the pinch of giving the extra money at all. We've also had some pretty amazing incidents of money coming in out of the blue just in time during a pinch.

I'm not writing this to accuse those who give less, but just to let you know that tithing has some very real benefits, and once decided upon is easier than you think.
