Congratulations on your marriage and your new job. Research Associates making $37,000 a year live very comfortably in Des Moines with the partner not working and even a baby at home. Make sure you have health insurance with a low deductible though. Iowa is low cost overall, Indian groceries are a little pricey to buy but you can always order them online.

With blessings and good wishes
