A Single-Income Family

Here's an interesting household from the 1880 census:

This is no relation to me, but look at this...from the 1880 Census....in Flint, Michigan....notice the girl Jenny Abertheny who is listed as "no relation" to the head of the household. Her occupation? Prostitute.

Jenny's husband's occupation? "Miserable loafer." [Link]
The census says that Jennie was single and George was married, but they may indeed have been cuckold husband and wife.
