According to Clark Howard today.......
« on: April 14, 2011, 02:30:50 PM »
Student loan debt is quickly becoming a deal breaker when folks consider marrying someone. If you knew your partner had lots of debt, that would potentially tie up the family wealth for years, would this factor into your decision?

No I never asked this before.  I've never really ever thought about it until today. When we are young, we tend to be lead by our hearts. When we get older, we follow our brains.

Depends on how much.  Me and my girl have quite a few bills attached to our Master's degree's but we currently have a lot of buying power as well.  I've suggested to her that we take one salary and put it towards bills and savings for the first three years of marriage.  If it means we have to delay a bigger house for a few years; that's well worth it.  I plan on being free of unnecessary debt (ie student loans, credit cards, etc) by age 40.

I went through the student loan roller coaster years ago and I refuse to do it again. It's hell, and I don't wish that on no one. You can't escape them, no court will forgive them. Your only way out is to pay them off or die.

I'm too old to be bringing someone else's debt into my life.  You fix yours, I'll fix mine and never the twain shall meet.

My old church in Maryland First Baptist Church of Glenarden, Pastor John Jenkins as part of pre marriage class counsel  which was for about ten weeks 1 class was on finance in marriage. You have to get your credit report and show your future mate only them get to look at it.

That is one way to let you know what you are getting into, you going share everything else but hide the money history.

That's a good idea, but depending on how 'young' the couple is, them hormones are going to rule.

What do you know about hormones and being horny? You were an old man at 16.
