Can I survive with this salary?

Hi everybody,

That's my first time writing to the forum and, as salaries have everything to do with Daily life, I create my question here.

The point is:

I've got a job offer to work in Bern for an UN agency.
The annual salary is 72.000 CHF 12 salaries
plus 50 % of health insurance of my family (me and my wife)
plus 500chf / month or so for her (while not working)
plus allocation.

As an UN employ I will not pay taxes, the only discount in my month salary is for the private pension.

Is that salary enough for me and my wife (no children)?

Many thanks
