Help i dating someone with a ton of student debt
Well first this question is about my boyfriend more so than me.
My boyfriend just turned 34 and I am about to be 27.
After discussing this he realized that that was what he wanted to do and I have supported that. We have worked at getting the private one out of default and I think it is. The private loan he was paying off but I recently found out that is not being paid anymore.
He enrolled in his pre-requisite classes and was on his way. I would assume because he does not have the money to do so.
Maybe it’s because I talk about money all day, but I haven’t really found the sweet spot for when it’s okay to start talking about money or when it’s appropriate to throw money management into the equation of “desirable dating qualities.” Seems like everyone agrees that it’s not cool to talk debt and taxes on date number one.
Huffington Post Reader Question Dear Steve, Where do I begin....
And that poses an interesting question: does money matter when dating, especially early on?
Or is it something to talk about later when things start to get serious?
So, if you have a joint credit card and your husband racks up charges, you are held responsible for the payments.According to one study, couples that argued early in their relationships (regardless of income, debt, etc.) were more likely to divorce.Could it be that getting on the same page about money is the key to marital bliss? The other part of the equation is how much money really matters when it comes to relationships.
What happens when someone we’re romantically involved with is bad with money? I suspect the answer depends in part whether you are dating or whether you are married.The best thing to do to protect yourself if you have a partner or spouse who is bad with money is to keep your finances separate (no joint accounts / loans together).
