Question Mortgage question

What percent of your take-home pay is your mortgage payment?

We started looking at houses this weekend and we're trying to figure out our budget for buying a new home. Right now, our mortgage payment (with taxes and insurance) is about 22% of our take home pay each month. That's for a 15-year, 5% mortgage.

Just wondering what everyone else's is.....
